13. Boredom? Are you serious?

The Mediterranean is a huge region. You must be limiting yourself to a tiny subset of the foods, based perhaps on the stereotypical idea of what Mediterraneans eat. (Hint: have you ever been to a Greek or Lebanese restaurant?)

Consider, for example, the following:
Hummus
Stuffed Grape Leaves (can also be stuffed green peppers, eggplant, etc.)
Baba Ganoush
Ratatouille
Tajine
Falafel
Imam Bayildi
Lentil "Meat" Balls
Latke

Take a look at this cookbook:http://www.amazon.com/Mediterranean-Vegan-Kitchen-Donna-Klein/dp/1557883599

ETA: Sorry; I thought you were responding to the original message. I agree with you that refusing to reward oneself with food is difficult to stick to. However, a strictly vegetarian Mediterranean diet, combined with exercise, is probably much better than yo-yo dieting, as well as being much more pleasurable.
