Mediterranean Diet Directory

Some experts consider the traditional Mediterranean diet to be one of the healthiest in the world. It's a dietary pattern that favors fruits and vegetables, monounsaturated fats such as olive oil, fish, beans, nuts, whole grains, and limited amounts of red wine and dairy. It can be a weight loss plan, if the foods that dominate the Mediterranean diet are eaten in moderation. Some experts say the diet may reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer's, and heart disease.
