Stay healthy with a Mediterranean diet
What is the
The Mediterranean diet is inspired by the eating habits of Greece, Italy, and Spain.
Overall, it includes high amounts of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans and legumes, cereals and grains, fish and ‘good fats’, which are unsaturated fats like olive oil (Extra virgin olive oil).
Normally, consumption of meat and dairy and sweet foods is low.
To follow a Mediterranean diet you do not necessarily need to count calories, but you do need to have a balanced and full of variety diet. This automatically balances your meals with the right amount of fibres, carbs fats and proteins.
Why should you care?
Studies have found evidence that maintaining a Mediterranean diet could lead to a lower risk of cardiovascular diseases, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases and diabetes.
Having a diverse and moderate diet is good for your whole body as it provides all the essential nutrients you need without sacrificing your favourite foods.
