About

The heart-healthy Mediterranean Diet is a way of eating based on the traditional foods and drinks of the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea.

The Mediterranean Diet is a great way to lose weight and improve overall health of an individual. It is a lifestyle component in Mediterranean countries such as Italy, Greece, Spain, Lebanon, Syria and Morocco.

Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean diet typically includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, pasta, legumes and nuts. These foods provide plenty of micronutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber that work together to protect against chronic disease.

This diet plan discourages the use of saturated fats and hydrogenated oils while cooking meals, which contribute to heart disease, and encourages using olive oil as the primary source of fat.

Unlike most diet plans, the Mediterranean diet allows for moderate consumption of wine, usually with meals.

Therefore, the Mediterranean diet has long been considered one of the healthiest diets on the planet.
