Portland, ME, Jan. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Year after year, the Mediterranean Diet continues to be listed among the top diets as recommended by medical professionals for nearly 20 years. While many other diets and extreme diet philosophies have come and gone, this way of eating has persisted and it’s no surprise. There are several reasons why the Mediterranean diet is considered the most recommended diet amongst physicians and health professionals. First, the diet has a primary focus on plant-based foods such as fibrous vegetables, legumes, nuts, olive oil and some fruit. This results in a higher level of monounsaturated fats which keep the heart healthy by reducing ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol levels, while increasing ‘good’ HDL cholesterol levels along with helping to reduce plaque buildup in the arterial walls. Additionally, the fiber content of the Mediterranean diet is higher than most standard diets and weight loss protocols combined, resulting in a positive impact on blood sugar and colon health.

Secondly, the Mediterranean diet has undergone some of the most extensive research of any diet or lifestyle plans, consistently revealing many health benefits such as:

⁃ Reducing cardiac risk factors
⁃ Reducing the risk of cancer
⁃ Protecting against type 2 diabetes
⁃ Reduces risk of Alzheimer’s disease
⁃ Reduces risk of Parkinson’s disease
⁃ Encourages weight loss
⁃ Reduces inflammation
⁃ May improve pain
⁃ May improve fertility
⁃ Increases lifespan

Lastly, one major benefit for Mediterranean dieters is its flexibility, the variety of foods allowed rivals most diets, which only adds to its many health benefits. The foods which are to be avoided are the generally already known offenders of highly processed carbohydrates and sugar, along with trans fats and hydrogenated oils. These processed foods are often the culprits behind heart disease, diabetes, inflammation, obesity, and several other health conditions. Overall, the Mediterranean diet is definitely one worth trying. Diet Doc, the nation’s leading medical weight loss program offers an easy, telemedicine protocol for new Mediterranean dieters.
