The Mediterranean diet is high in fresh fruits and vegetables and low in red meat and sugar.The concept of the Mediterranean diet comes from the countries that border the Mediterranean sea, where people historically ate mainly produce, nuts, and healthy fats. The diet can help with weight loss, heart health, and diabetes prevention. It's more than a diet, it's a lifestyle. The Mediterranean approach to food is a way of eating that includes balanced, whole foods, and is a way of planning meals and snacks that take into account seasonal products. You can find most foods at your local grocery store and farmers’ markets.
