A study conducted by the Harvard school of public health has determined that following the Mediterranean diet plan can help people lower their risk of cardiovascular disease. This diet has been around for a long time, but it really gained momentum in the 1990’s.
Following traditional eating principles in places like Greece and Spain, this diet is rich in protein and greens: Think nuts, fruits, vegetables, olive oil, cheese, yogurt and meat. Like any diet for full affect people should think of them as a lifestyle choice, not just a temporary fix.
The Mediterranean diet is a good choice for the heart, and cheese lovers can rejoice! The rule of thumb with this diet is to keep it green and learn to love salads.
