Eating the Mediterranean Way
Did you know eating a Mediterranean diet could prevent or even reverse metabolic syndrome, a cluster of risk factors for heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes? A Mediterranean style diet has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects on the body and people who eat this kind of diet, live longer with less disease. A new statement by an International Scientific Consensus Summit concludes that low glycemic diets, like the Mediterranean diet, can:
- Improve blood sugar control in type 2 diabetes
- Reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes by improving insulin sensitivity and the function of cells in the pancreas
- Reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by improving cholesterol levels and the markers of inflammation
Studies show it may be better for weight loss than a low fat diet and more satisfying. It’s more than a diet it’s a lifestyle. We can show you how to make it a part of your lifestyle!
