“Bill Bradley was invited to speak to our entire staff in Washington, D.C. on Mediterranean diet and health. He shared his passion for cooking and eating in a healthy way with humor and a fresh eye. Mr. Bradley had a special knack for getting the most introverted participants involved in the workshop. He has a talent for researching his food and nutrition topics and transforming that information into a fun and engaging presentation.”

“We had Bill do a 4-week Virtual Cooking Demo during the month of July. It was a huge hit with our associates, and we will absolutely be having him back for another. This time, we chose the Eating for Weight Loss route since many of us have struggled with our weight due to working from home and self-isolation this year. Each session included a live demonstration of Bill cooking a delicious recipe that was paired with that week’s focus. We went over fat, your microbiome, inflammation, and carbohydrates, and how each of these plays a role in weight loss. Bill was very knowledgeable about this subject as he is a registered dietician. He was comfortable in front of the camera, and was prepared for any and all questions that came up during the demonstrations. By the end of them we were always hungry so planning these around lunch time is a must! I would recommend his program to anyone looking to learn some Healthy recipes, and tips for weight loss.”

FOR INDIVIDUALS OR CORPORATE WELLNESS PROGRAMS
The Mediterranean Way Program
A 10 week online program that will change how you think about healthy eating forever! Each week participants get new meal plans, recipes, cooking videos, and challenges that lead them step by step to eating the Mediterranean Diet.
Mediterranean Diet Weight Loss Program
A 10 week online program designed to help people lose weight and discover the benefits of the Mediterranean Diet and lifestyle. This program includes meal plans, recipes, cooking videos and challenges that are aimed to help participants lose weight while eating the tasty foods of the Mediterranean Diet.
Online Program Testimonials:
This program is a way of life, one which I have adopted successfully, and more importantly one which I have sustained for over one year now. My weight remains steady at 160 pounds (down from 216). My energy levels rival that of someone 20 years younger than me (I’m now 57), enabling me to exercise in any way that I desire, from lifting weights to intense cardio sessions. My focus and clarity are now laserlike, and my sustained levels of concentration have allowed me to significantly increase the rigor of my teaching.
The highest compliment I can give to the Mediterranean Diet and Lifestyle Program is that I’m about to take it again. There’s always more to learn, and Bill continually shares so much new information that I’m sure the journey will remain fresh and exciting. Furthermore, the people in the support group on the program’s Facebook page are knowledgeable, respectful, and always helping each other to overcome whatever obstacles may come up.
Mediterranean Way participant
We are always trying to find ways to build employment wellness, engagement, and teamwork. One thing we did, that was a huge hit, was Mediterranean Living’s online program: The Mediterranean Way.
This program ran for ten weeks. We set up two teams that competed on a number of diet, exercise, and cooking ideas. The employees really got into it. They shared recipes and had Mediterranean potluck lunches. We provided team t-shirts (white and blue) that everyone wore once a week on the day of the lunches. There was good natured bragging about contests they won.
The cost was very reasonable for such a robust program. Mediterranean Living provided a great program with excellent information. The prizes (olive oil, cookbooks, olive oil soap) were also excellent.
The Mediterranean Way ranks as one of the most popular wellness initiatives we have ever tried.
