The Mediterranean Diet has been rated the top diet
by the US NEWS & WORLD REPORT
for the past 4 years.
This is more than just a course. It’s more than just a cooking class.
It’s a way to seamlessly translate this pattern of eating into your own kitchen and life.
What is The Mediterranean Diet?
The Mediterranean Diet is consistently ranked as one of the top diets in the world. Research shows that following the Mediterranean Diet leads to weight loss and reduces the risk for chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s.
This eating pattern puts food first, so you’ll enjoy delicious, real and whole foods–fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fat– that nourish your body and mind.
What’s Included in the Course?
This 6-module course is a step-by-step guide to following the Mediterranean Diet from start to finish. You’ll not only learn which foods to eat, but you’ll also learn the how-to of implementing those foods in your typical day.
These hands-on lessons explore the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet, incorporating meal planning and healthy cooking techniques to help you adopt the heart-healthy diet beyond the classroom.
From delicious recipes to weekly meal plans, you’ll gain a new library of resources to fall back on when cooking for one or for a whole family.

From people working with Pam and Claire, taking cooking classes, and following other Fully Mediterranean programs.
First of all, Pam is incredible to learn from, so knowledgeable, kind, interesting, relatable and she makes learning interesting and fun. Fully Mediterranean is just that, a comprehensive healthy lifestyle that is sustainable and delicious. If you’re ready to commit, then you’re ready for Fully Mediterranean and the pleasure of knowing Pam.
We have found the Mediterranean Diet, although not really a diet but a way of eating and lifestyle, has become a perfect fit in our household. My husband who has taken some of Fully Mediterranean’s cooking classes with me and loves to cook and eat, has lost 20 pounds. Once you become familiar with many of the basic ingredients used in most of the recipes, shopping for them becomes routine. Pam makes all participants feel welcome and comfortable regardless of cooking experience.
Within 9 months of working with Pam, my weight never fluctuated, my sleep patterns improved and, most importantly, I dramatically enhanced my scores. My HDL went from 36 to 60 mg/dL with similar progress in my LDL and LDL-P results, which my doctor highlights as the single fastest improvement he has ever seen.
Fully Mediterranean’s entire approach is nonthreatening, user friendly and grounded in proven science rather than fads. It starts with education, which was critical for me, and walks through proper planning for meals and snacks.
My husband and I realized we needed to improve our eating patterns and habits in an effort to improve and maintain our health and to lose weight. We were looking for an eating lifestyle that was sustainable, easy to follow and enjoyable. Additionally, we each wanted to lose some weight. With Pam’s coaching and detailed information about the Fully Mediterranean program, we’ve been able to improve our diet and lose weight. Meals are easy to plan and prepare. And, more importantly, are delicious, making it an easy and sustainable lifestyle to adapt to.

I've already tried the Mediterranean diet but didn’t see the results I wanted. Will this course work for me?
We have had a lot of success with our previous programs, and people have gained the confidence and the tools to follow the Mediterranean diet with notable progress. Often times people feel there is a missing link with other resources out there – whether that is not knowing which recipes to follow, not having the tools to properly meal plan, or not having the support you need to stay on track. We provide all of those things and more!
How long will it take me to finish the course?
There are 6 modules in the course that are delivered weekly. If you are trying to complete it quickly, you will be able to do so in 6 weeks. However, the average time we recommend is around 2-3 months to complete all the content.
