Mediterranean Diet Weight Loss

Post by mattiebrown7777 » Fri Sep 23, 2016 12:35 am

What It Entails

Basically, a Mediterranean diet calls for people to eat a great deal of fresh fruit, plant foods, fish, poultry, some dairy products, while using extra virgin olive oil as the primary source of fat. Also, a moderate amount of eggs can be eaten each month, while red meat is to be avoided as much as possible. Red meat can be eaten in low amounts, but meals should not be centered around it because of how it affects the heart. The Mediterranean diet is meant to lower the risk of heart disease, since olive oil is high in monounsaturated fats, which have been known to reduce this risk substantially. This also reduces the body's cholesterol levels, which is also a positive thing for the body.

In my opinion, the Mediterranean diet is great for older people since it can lower cholesterols and it promotes heart health. I think this article https://www.dietspotlight.com/mediterranean-diet/ is an excellent resource for those interested in the diet.
