Science supports Mediterranean diet as healthiest way to eat

EXACTLY RIGHT. A NUTRITIONIST REALIZED THAT PEOPLE FROM THAT REGION FROM THE MEDITERRANEAN REGION WERE THE HEALTHIEST. SO THIS DIET REALLY MIMICS WHAT THEY EAT. AND IT’S NOT REALLY A DIET IN THE SENSE THAT YOU CAN ONLY EAT A CERTAIN NUMBER OF CALORIES OR YOU CAN’T EAT AT A CERTAIN TIME OR A CERTAIN FOOD GROUP. IT’S MORE OF A WAY OF EATING THAT EMPHASIZES PLANTS AND HEALTHY FATS. EVERYTHING LOOKS GOOD TO ME, OTHER THAN PASTA. IF YOU CAN DO IT IN MODERATION, THAT’S GOOD. MERCY MEDICAL CENTER’S DR. COLE DEEP SEEING IS NOT SURPRISED. THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET IS RANKED NUMBER ONE BY U.S. NEWS AND WORLD REPORT. AGAIN, IN GENERAL, IT MEANS EATING MOSTLY VEGGIE FRUITS AND WHOLE GRAINS LIKE BROWN RICE, OLIVE OIL, BEANS AND NUTS, EATING SOME FISH, SOME CHEESE AND YOGURT. LITTLE OR NO MEAT, ESPECIALLY RED MEAT, CHICKEN INSTEAD, LITTLE OR NO SWEETS. SUGARY DRINKS OR BUTTER. WHEN WE DO PLANT BASED DIET, KIND OF THE RED MEAT, TAKE ALL THREE. AND NOW MONO SATURATED. ON SATURATED FATTY ACIDS LIKE OLIVE OIL OR AVOCADO OIL, THESE THINGS HAVE REALLY LONG TERM RESULTS ON OUR BODY. GOOD. GOOD RESULTS. SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN.

STRAWBERRIES. ALSO SOME VEGETABLES AND HUMMUS IS A REALLY GOOD SNACK. OR APPETIZER. WE WANT TO STAY AWAY FROM THE VEGETABLE OILS AND STICK WITH THE EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL AND MAKE SURE IT IS EXTRA VIRGIN BECAUSE IT HAS A BETTER BALANCE OF HEALTHIER FATS. THINKING AHEAD FOR BREAKFAST. GREEK YOGURT WITH SOME NUTS. HERE WE GO. RAW ALMONDS. YOU DON’T HAVE TO COMPLETELY GIVE UP RED MEAT, BUT TRY TO KEEP IT TO ABOUT ONE SERVING A WEEK. AND AS FOR DESSERTS, WELL, THEY LOOK REALLY DELICIOUS. BUT NOW THIS IS A VERY LOW SUGAR DIET, SO YOU HAVE TO PASS ON THE DESSERT AND GET OUT, GRAB MY BAGS AND HEADED HOME. THIS IS THE MEDITERRANEAN DINNER. I ENDED UP WITH BAKED SALMON AND ROASTED ASPARAGUS, ALONG WITH TOMATO AND AVOCADO SALAD. AND YES, A GLASS OF WINE.
