For the sixth year in a row, the Mediterranean diet wins first place as the best diet. This study was developed by "US News & World Report" together with a panel of medical experts specializing in diseases such as diabetes, heart and brain health. According to them, this type of diet is easy to follow and promotes a healthy lifestyle compared to other diets, as it consists of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, seafood, unsaturated fats and extra virgin olive oil. . Fats other than olive oil, such as butter and sugar, are consumed only on special occasions. Red meat is used sparingly, while eggs, milk and chicken are eaten in much smaller portions than in traditional Western diets.
Doctors showed that the regimen in question has a positive impact on improving cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes and prevents the risk of dementia and breast cancer. Also, it can serve as an important tool for managing symptoms of anxiety and depression and is an important ally in increasing longevity and quality of life. Another benefit lies in the fact that this type of diet is not very expensive and applies to every member of the family regardless of health history, age and weight. Additionally, it is important to mention that this regimen encourages moderate consumption of healthy fats and decreases consumption of unhealthy fats such as saturated fats.
What are saturated and unsaturated fats?
Saturated fats include butter, coconut oil and dairy products. In the Mediterranean diet they should be consumed in moderation. Meanwhile, unsaturated fats include vegetable oils, nuts, seeds and fish. Numerous studies show that they help with weight loss.
Can we lose weight if we follow this diet?
It is very effective for weight loss, but it is necessary to make wise choices and pay attention to portion sizes. A traditional Mediterranean diet consists of 40% carbohydrates, 40% fat and about 20% protein.
