The Mediterranean Diet is not really a diet it is more about different eating habits. It traditionally comes from the people in the Mediterranean whom are living longer and with fewer diseases then anywhere else in the world. The main focus is on many plant based food like fruits and vegetables and also on whole grains and beans, fish and shellfish, olive oil or canola oil, and red wine.
The benefits of this way of eating is that it helps to reduce heart disease by lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, prevents many cancers, helps in controlling diabetes, and is important in maintaining weight just to name a few. In addition, it is important to reduce stress and to exercise as this is also a big part of the lives of the people in the Mediterranean (they virtually walk everywhere).
The majority of the food eaten should be whole grains and beans/legumes, around 9 servings of fruits and vegetables, olive or canola oil, nuts/seeds, herbs and spices, red wine (in moderation), and fish and shellfish everyday. Try to eat a variety of foods within these categories and go for a wide range of colors.
The things that are typically not in the plan are very little or no red meats and processed foods. It is also very limited in the amount of dairy, sweets, saturated fats, and trans fats that are eaten. As far as diets and/or eating plans go this one appears to be realistic and doable.
