For many Americans, trying exotic foods from other cultures that stray away from the oftentimes unhealthy American foods is always a pleasure. Researchers have found that the diets of people living in the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea may be one of the most healthy in the world. People living in the countries of Italy, Spain, France, Greece, Syria, Israel, and others have the lowest rate of chronic diseases and live the longest. Their eating patterns have come to be known as the Mediterranean Diet.
Unlike many of the get-fit-quick diets that guarantee weight loss in a certain amount of time, the Mediterranean Diet has actually been proven to decrease blood pressure in as little as two weeks, lower cholesterol, keep your weight under control, and protect you from chronic illnesses such as Arthritis, Heart Disease, and Diabetes. It’s why many individuals view it as more of a lifestyle than a diet designed by marketers. Check out this article that provides a variety of healthy Mediterranean Recipes so that you can plan ahead before going to the grocery store to stock up on ingredients for meal preparation.
