According to a published article from the Medical News Today website, many health professionals recommend a Mediterranean diet to help ward off disease and keep people healthy for longer since it emphasizes the consumption of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains while focusing less on dairy and meat. A traditional Mediterranean meal typically includes a generous portion of fresh produce, whole grains, and legumes as well as healthy fats and fish.
A recent study published in Nutrition & Diabetes concluded that following a Mediterranean diet is associated with lower levels of weight gain and less increase in waist circumference. Meanwhile, a 2019 study from The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology journal found that people who followed the Mediterranean diet with nuts saw a difference in waistline over a 5-year period. According to mindbodygreen.com, the Mediterranean diet has also long been praised for its wide-ranging health benefits, from improved heart health to a reduced risk of cancer. In fact, a 2013 PREDIMED study found that people who ate a Mediterranean style diet rich in olive oil and nuts had a significantly lower risk of experiencing a major cardiovascular event such as a heart attack or stroke. These people also had fewer cardiovascular disease risk factors such as central obesity.
In line with promoting the Mediterranean Lifestyle and way of living, Gourmante has launched its blog "Mediterranean Living Magazine" that focuses on health, beauty, lifestyle, and nutrition—The Med Way. A recently published blog post on the website, 5 Easy Ways to Eat the Mediterranean Way, discusses a set of methods to get started with eating like a Mediterranean local. Written by company nutritionist Annamaria Louloudis, the article recommends switching to olive oil because it offers many health benefits, including a high proportion of monounsaturated (heart-healthy) fats and antioxidants from polyphenols. Studies have also shown that consuming olive oil decreases the risk of having serious heart disease, reduces overall inflammation and prevents premature aging and other diseases.
Louloudis also highlights the importance of eating a variety of produce, such as fruits and vegetables. They can be eaten cooked or raw, preferably with olive oil, to get a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and healthy oils into a person’s system. She further states that eating fresh fruits with a little cheese and yogurt promotes healthy digestion since they are rich in fiber and good bacteria. She recommends choosing lean meats as a good source of protein. It is advisable to go for chicken, turkey, lean beef and fish since these types of meat are high-quality protein with less saturated fats.
Finally, Louloudis points out that all types of processed foods must be avoided at all cost. These include chips, sodas, muffins, cookies, ice cream, etc. Read the Gourmante Mediterranean Living Magazine to learn more about the Mediterranean Diet and its wide range of health benefits.
