The One Diet That Does What It Says It’ll Do

Americans are constantly looking for a diet or a pill that will help them lose weight, improve their health, increase their energy or even all three. And while achieving any of those things takes a lot more work than simply changing your eating habits, we may have found the diet that will give you in a leg up in all of those areas…

The Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean Diet incorporates all of the best aspects of a healthy diet, such as olive oil, red wine, fruits, veggies, fish and whole grains. It even limits unhealthy fats!

So, what are the benefits of following a Mediterranean diet?

·      Decreased risk for heart disease

·      Decreased cancer risk

·      Reduced incidence of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s

The key components of a Mediterranean diet are…

·      Plant based foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts

·      Olive oil instead of butter

·      Herbs and spices instead of salt

·      Limiting red meats to no more than a few times a month

·      Eating fish and poultry at least twice a week

·      Drinking red wine in moderation (optional)

However, while the Mediterranean diet is by far one of the healthiest you can get on, you still need to be active. No diet is magic, and it takes work to get to the healthy state you want to be in.
