Mediterranean Diet

Dr. Jimenez Mediterranean Diet. Looking for a heart-healthy diet? Then the Mediterranean diet might be for you. This diet incorporates healthy eating and other components that characterize the traditional cooking style of countries along the Mediterranean Sea. As with most healthy diets, this one includes fruits, vegetables, fish, and whole grains. While greatly limiting one’s intake of unhealthy fats.  But there can be subtle variations in proportions of certain foods that may make a difference in the risk of heart disease.

The foods to eat, for example, include Vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, legumes, potatoes, whole grains, bread, herbs, spices, fish, seafood, and extra virgin olive oil. While foods to be eaten in moderation are poultry, eggs, cheese, and yogurt. And on rare occasions, have some red meat. The foods to stay away from are sugar-sweetened beverages, added sugars, processed meat, refined grains, refined oils, and processed foods.

This diet has shown that more than 1.5 million adults demonstrated this diet was associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular mortality and overall mortality. It is also associated with reduced development of cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s. Women who followed this diet supplemented with extra-virgin olive oil and mixed nuts may reduce breast cancer risk. Also, read ingredient lists if you want to avoid these unhealthy ingredients.
