The Mediterranean Diet: It's not what you think

'Over the past two decades an abundance of studies have verified that the Mediterranean diet can help with weight loss, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, prevent heart attacks, metabolic syndrome, strokes, type 2 diabetes and can increase longevity. In fact, the most recent studies have highlighted the following Mediterranean Diet health benefits:

1) Women who follow the Mediterranean diet are likely to increase their lifespan and have better health during middle-age.
2) Improved brain and cognitive function
3) Reduced cardiovascular risk

A key aspect of the Mediterranean diet that’s often overlooked by Americans is the fact that’s it’s an all-encompassing lifestyle and not just about food choices.'
