A specialist in endocrine disorders, Lindberg was born in Greece but now lives in Norway, where he runs four clinics and has published several other books, including The Greek Doctor's Diet. He describes "eating the Greek way" as balancing "slow" (or "good") carbs, protein, and healthy fats to keep insulin levels relatively consistent, and each recipe includes its glycemic index, a ranking based on its effects on blood sugar. The book opens with a lengthy introduction on eating well, with sample menus, lists of kitchen and pantry essentials, and more. The recipes are fairly sophisticated, but readers may be surprised to discover that relatively few of them are Greek-and although most are inspired by Mediterranean cuisines, some come from other culinary traditions as well.
