For years, medical experts have observed and confirmed that residents of Mediterranean countries have much lower cases of obesity, cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases than people in the United States and other European countries. After much observation and research, scientists have traced this phenomenon to their diet difference.
My new e-Book “Guide to The Mediterranean Diet will help you to understand the Mediterranean Diet, how to start following it, its health benefits, how to follow the diet while eating out, and some traditional Mediterranean foods to try.
What is the Mediterranean Diet?
The general perception is that people that live in countries that border the Mediterranean Sea live longer than others, and they have less occurrence of cardiovascular ailments and cancer. The not-so-surprising secret about this is their lifestyle and diet that includes low saturated fat, sugar, red meat, a high intake of nuts, and other healthy meals.
But it’s not right to think that there is “a” Mediterranean diet since Italians eat differently from the French, who eat differently from Spanish and Greeks. However, their nutrient pattern and principle are very similar.
A true Mediterranean diet is based on traditional fruits, beans, dairy, seafood, nuts, and olive oil that are found in the region, combined with a glass a wine. This was the pattern of the feeding of Greeks and other Mediterranean countries that made their life expectancy rate one of the highest in the world, even with a limited supply of medical services.
