What is the Mediterranean diet?
The main ingredients for a healthy Mediterranean diet are: lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy fats and fish. It really feels like a holiday, doesn’t it? In these very much-loved tourist destinations such as southern France, Italy and Greece, people have always eaten what the region had to offer. The secret of Mediterranean cuisine is a balanced, varied and healthy diet.
- many vegetables
- fresh fruit, preferably in season
- nuts and seeds
- fresh herbs and garlic
- fresh fish
- wholemeal bread
- a good oil, for example olive oil
- eggs – moderately
- wine, one glass per day – moderately
The Mediterranean diet is a healthy and balanced form of diet that protects the cardiovascular system. This high-fibre diet has a positive effect on digestion, cholesterol levels and the regulation of blood lipids.
The Mediterranean diet and a healthy diet
Scientists at the University of Ben Gurion in Israel have made this discovery as part of a long-term study: The Mediterranean Mediterranean diet reduces abdominal fat and liver fat, thus leading to a return of the desired body shape and of course helping to improve health. According to scientists, the risk of arterial diseases, strokes and heart attacks is thus greatly reduced. Almost 300 people have been under observation for a period of 18 months, divided into two groups. The first group was given food with a low carbohydrate content, while the second group had more carbohydrates, legumes, many fresh vegetables, fish and poultry, but rarely red meat. In the low-fat group, the same was limited to a maximum of 30% of calories consumed.
In the participants in the Mediterranean diet, i.e. in the second group, the liver, heart and pancreas dangerous fats were eliminated.
