Benefits of a Mediterranean Diet

February 11, 2010

Eating a Mediterranean diet involves simple choices away from processed foods toward vegetables, fruits, whole grains, olives/olive oil, fish (those rich in essential heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids) and in lesser amounts, cheese, yogurt, nuts, seeds, legumes, eggs, herbs, with occasional small portions of meats, sweets and wine. And it’s GREAT for your health.

There is very little debate that such a diet can have a major impact on your health, only substantial debate is determining the extent of the benefits. Research suggests that a Mediterranean diet can have a positive impact on cancer, weight loss, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression, coronary heart disease and “neurodegenerative age-related diseases” (cognitive deficit, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease). Not bad for what is, at it’s most basic, a delicious way to dine.
