Mediterranean Diet

Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean Diet Plan will help you follow a diet similar to that traditionally found in the countries around the Mediterranean area.
It includes a rich amount of healthy fats, olive oil, nuts and seeds, as well as a large selection of fresh fruit and vegetables too, while cutting down your red meat intake.

The Mediterranean diet is a rich source of essential fatty acids and antioxidants, which together can help improve cholesterol levels and maintain a healthy heart. A recipe-based or combination plan is recommended to better follow the principles of the Mediterranean diet.

Pros Cons
  • Intake of fish and healthy fats = increased amount of essential fatty acids
  • Eat large amounts of fresh fruit and veg
  • Decrease in red meat and processed foods intake
  • Improve cholesterol levels & protect heart
  • Can consume too many total fat calories (although healthy fats, any fat eaten in excess will cause weight gain).
