How To Start A Mediterranean Diet

The word diet is in there, but one of the best parts about this approach to eating is that it's more about making a conscious decision to eat more fruits, veggies, whole grains, seafood, and healthy fats than anything you might traditionally associate with a "diet."

The Mediterranean diet doesn’t involve counting calories, tracking macronutrients like carbohydrates, or any of the strict rules or restrictions of many of the fads marketed to us these days as health or weight-loss 

 Research has shown that following a Mediterranean diet aligns with reduced rates of cancer, better heart health, and improved mental health.

The Mediterranean diet refers to the eating habits of people who live in countries that border the Mediterranean Sea. This includes places such as France, Greece, Morocco, Turkey, Italy, and Spain.

It might seem overwhelming to start a diet based on a culture that you might not be a part of or geographically near. Luckily, there are a few tips you can follow to ensure a smooth transition to a Mediterranean diet.

. Try incorporating seafood into your meals once a week.

. Keep healthy, fulfilling snacks on deck.

How to get started 

. Start using olive oil to cook.

. Don't shy away from frozen foods.
