The Effective Mediterranean Diet for Beginners

What’s the first thing that comes into your mind when you think about Mediterranean food? If you ask other people, various answers would come up—pasta, pizza, white bread, gyros, falafel, hummus, pita and so on. But it’s important to realize that these foods are not exactly what you’d call “healthy”, which the Mediterranean Diet is known for.

So what does the real Mediterranean Diet look like?

The Mediterranean Diet is based primarily on the dietary habits and nutritional intake of people in countries situated near the Mediterranean Sea, including Greece, Italy, and Crete. This diet plan places heavy emphasis on the consumption of fruits and vegetables, seafood, whole grains and healthy fats. It allows for moderate intake of dairy products and poultry, but says no to sugary treats, refined grains, and heavily processed foods.

In this book you will learn about the main health benefits of the Mediterranean Diet in detail which include:

  • Protection against heart disease
  • Reduction of the risk for cancer
  • Prevention of the Alzheimer’s disease
  • Prevention of the Parkinson’s disease
  • Strengthening of muscles
  • Increase of life span
  • Weight loss boost
