Mediterranean Diet Plan Reduces Cancer, Heart Disease, Alzheimers

Posted on Monday, August 22nd, 2011 at 4:20 pm

If you knew of an eating regimen where you would be 22% less likely to develop  breast cancer, 20% less prone to heart disease, and 40% less likely to get Alzheimer’s than Americans, would you give it a try? The Mediterranean diet plan delivers on all these claims! Scientists now recognize the amazing health benefits enjoyed by those living in countries bordering Mediterranean Sea, due not just to healthy eating habits, but a healthier lifestyle that includes socializing over meals with friends and family, a slower pace, and even the occasional afternoon nap. Visualize their diet as a pyramid with its base consisting of fruits,  vegetables, beans, legumes and nuts, and healthy (polyunsaturated and monounsaturated) oils. Seven servings a day are recommended from this foundation level. The next level is fish with its healthy Omega-3 oils. Then step up to the  third layer–poultry, eggs and dairy, and finally. level four, consisting of meats and sweets, which should be eaten only rarely. No need to feel deprived when you’re on the healthy and proven Mediterranean diet plan.
