About Mediterranean Diet:
The Mediterranean Diet!
There is no rocket science around the well-established fact that the Mediterranean diet is one of the best ways to eat. It filled the great diet with those essential foods — fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds, lean proteins like fish, olive oil, red wine — that are scarcely available in the traditional western diets.
During my several years of researching and experimenting with the Mediterranean diet — which birthed this book, you are about to read — I realize that most people perceive the Mediterranean Diet to be just any other regular diet that is aimed at losing weight only. This is a misconception that is disheartening, to think that many people are losing out on the myriad of benefits that the Mediterranean diet offers. It is this passion that was infused in this book. The idea to write this book came by popular demand from my friends, who insisted I share my healthy diet secrets with the world.
Secret? Is it still a secret? It is the Mediterranean diet!
The Mediterranean diet is not just a diet but also a lifestyle that is centered on the classical aspects of agriculture and culture of the Mediterranean, allowing you to reap the associated health benefits. This diet has all that your dietician would recommend — rich in fiber and antioxidants, and low in saturated and trans fats.
Before I get engrossed in the overwhelming health benefits of the Mediterranean diet, let us quickly travel down the memory of the Mediterranean diet.
The Mediterranean diet originated from the 21 countries that border the Mediterranean Sea. An extraordinarily diverse group of countries: Italy, France, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Israel, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Libya, and more surrounds the Sea.
However, it was the countries on the northern border — Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, and the South of France — that gave rise to what we refer to today as the Mediterranean cuisine. The inference to be drawn here is that the Mediterranean diet is not just a single diet, so to say, but it is about what these northern cuisines had in common: a daily emphasis on vegetables and fruits, beans and lentils, whole grains, more seafood than meat and poultry, and heart-healthy olive oil.
The Mediterranean basin connects three continents — Africa, Asia, and Europe — and covers 28,580 miles of shoreline.
Nature smiles at the Mediterranean diet, the Mediterranean region has a favorable climate — mild, rainy winters and dry, hot summers — for growing various fruits, vegetables, olive oil, and wheat, which are synonymous with the diet. You may also notice lots of red wines in the Mediterranean diet. Well, winemaking has been an important part of Mediterranean life for at least 5,000 years; little wonder countries like Italy, France, and Spain are world leaders in wine production today.
I must stop here so I do not bore you with history. Pardon me. It is time we look at the health benefits of this diet.
