Mediterranean Diet Review

This isn’t so much a diet plan but a way of eating. This diet plan is all about changing your lifestyle to adapt a Mediterranean way of eating. Many studies confirm that this way of eating is good for the heart and overall well being. It has been noted that people in Mediterranean regions often live longer, healthier lives. 

The basis of the diet plan is that you should eat foods such as fruits, vegetables, olives, and whole grains. The emphasis is on natural foods including small amounts of seafood and lean meats, olive oil, nuts and avocados. Not high fatty foods such as cheese-laden pasta (think rustic and natural Mediterranean foods instead). 

You are also not advised to count calories but instead eat sensibly, taking your time to savor and chew your food and eating only until you are full. You shouldn’t eat any prepackaged foods either. 

The plan also gives you advice on changing your overall lifestyle such as getting exercise, watching portion sizes, drinking enough water and getting a good night’s sleep. 

Many dietitians agree with this diet because the guidelines are basic healthy eating principles. It is worth to note, that foods such as nuts, olive oil and avocado, although good for you, are still highly calorific. You only need a small amount of these foods daily to get the essential nutrients your body needs.
