Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean diet is not really a diet. It is simply a healthy eating pattern – a pattern close to the dietary guidelines recommended by the American Heart Association. This diet is high in the good fats (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats) as present in fish, olive oil and nuts; and low in saturated fats and trans fats. It provides excellent source of fiber and antioxidants through encouragement of eating lots of plant-based foods. Eating this way has many significant health benefits, while not sacrificing taste or feeling like you are on a diet.
