Mediterranean diet – the secret of longevity

Mediterranean diet has proven to be one of the most balanced and healthy diets in the world. This diet is characterized by the nutrition habits that the inhabitants of Crete and southern Italy had, from the early 1960's. The great popularity of this diet is based on studies which have shown that people who live around the Mediterranean have longer average lifespan and are less likely to develop heart problems or other chronic diseases.

The main advantage of this type of diet is the abundance of antioxidants, fiber and Omega 3 fatty acids. Characteristics of the Mediterranean diet

  • High consumption of olive oil. In the Med diet extra virgin Olive oil is the principal source of dietary fat - which increases the levels of good cholesterol (HDL) – and it is suitable for cooking, baking and frying.
  • High consumption of fruits, vegetables, breads and whole grain cereals
  • Moderate consumption of fish and poultry.
  • Moderately consumption of wine
  • Low consumption of eggs and red meat.

All these guidelines along with Daily physical activity form the ideal “recipe” for longevity, health and beauty.
