What is the Mediterranean diet?

The Mediterranean diet gets its name because it advocates for a diet rich in Mediterranean foods. These foods are traditional foods eaten by people who live around the Mediterranean Sea. This diet from the Mediterranean is not a boring diet as people are allowed to eat lots of seafood, fruits, and vegetables. It also encourages the eating of healthy oils such as olive oil and eating of healthy grains that encourage the growth of strong bodies and can even deal with hair loss.

- Why is this diet popular?

The reason this diet is so popular compared to others is that it slows down aging. It is especially good for dealing with hair loss, strengthening bones and maintaining supple skin. The Mediterranean diet also keeps diseases associated with old age such as heart ailments and cognitive decline at bay.

This diet from the Mediterranean as compared to others is easy to maintain as the foods allowed in the diet are so tasty. Think of the dishes loved in Mediterranean countries such as bread dipped in olive oil, pasta, creamy hummus, and seafood. What’s not to like! People who hate certain diets because they prohibited from eating their beloved carbs love this diet. You also get to drink wine during this diet hence many are quite partial to it.

- The Pyramid

People that follow this diet based on the eating habits of people living around the Mediterranean have a pyramid to guide them. This diet pyramid helps dieters to know what to eat more off and what to minimize.

Emphasis in the diet is on vegetables, fruits, whole grain, legumes, seeds, herb and spices. The next item is oily fish and seafood recommended at two servings a week at the bare minimum. Next, moderate amounts of dairy, chicken and eggs are allowed. When it comes to alcohol, wine is allowed in moderation. All these foods are excellent for dealing with hair loss, promoting the formation of healthy skin and improving overall appearance. Hence, this diet can help you look younger, promote good health and maintain fitness.

- Keep active

Apart from the food you eat, this diet is the only one that insists on an individual being active while on it. People on this diet are encouraged to stay active and share meals with others. Dieticians believe that the act of sharing meals results in the appreciation of eating healthy foods. Also eating healthy Mediterranean foods with others ensures that the appreciation of the diet makes an impact on the dieters.

- Plant-based foods

The Mediterranean diet succeeds because most of the foods eaten come from plants. This diet also prevents eating foods that are processed, and if you must, they should be processed minimally. The intake of natural foods results in the body getting lots of antioxidants. Anti-oxidants help to fight free radicals that promote aging. Hence, this diet from the Mediterranean is ideal for fighting aging.

- Benefits to the body

This Mediterranean diet minimizes the intake of foods that cause inflammation in the body. Foods that cause inflammation trigger ailments in the body and hasten aging in the body. Hence, by following this diet inspired by the way of eating in the Mediterranean region, you fight disease and old age. This diet is ideal for people who are lactose intolerant because dairy-based foods and beverages are phased out from the diet or taken in moderation.

The encouragement to eat more fruits and vegetables is to provide the body with lots of vitamins and minerals. These vitamins and minerals help to improve one's appearance and health. Overall, this diet inspired by the Mediterranean way of eating is excellent for good health and youthfulness.

The author enjoys reading about different ways of maintaining health, combating hair loss and promoting youthfulness through diet. She believes in improving one's appearance and health from the inside out through good diet. In this article, she offers information on the mediterranean diet and how it benefits the body. She also provides information on what to eat when on the diet.
