    We are not being given the truth about our health . . .

    We're told to avoid saturated fats, we're marketed health food laden with sugar and we're encouraged to pound out miles at the gym. However, our chances of obesity are increasing - raising our risk of Type-2 diabetes, cancer, dementia and heart disease.

    Yet in the tiny Italian village of Pioppi, life is as simple as it is long and healthy. There is no gym, no supermarket, the food is delicious and they enjoy a glass of wine every evening.

    Now cardiologist and world-leading obesity expert Dr Aseem Malhotra and acclaimed filmmaker Donal O'Neill combine the wisdom of this remarkably long-living population with decades of nutrition and medical research to cut through dietary myths and create this easy-to-follow lifestyle plan.

    This isn't a diet or lifestyle, which requires saying 'no' to the things you love, or exercising for hours upon end. In just three weeks, The Pioppi Diet will help you make simple, achievable and long-lasting changes to how you eat, sleep and move - changes that all of us, no matter how busy we are, can make.

    Indulge in delicious food for a happier, healthier and longer life such as . . .

World renowned Sports Scientist Prof Tim Noakes has hailed it as "the best health movie ever." The Pioppi Diet, co-written with Dr Aseem Malhotra, is Donal's first book.
