The Mediterranean Diet Full Flavored Foods Help You Lose Weight

by: Allison Preston
For everyone whoís been on a diet themselves or knows someone whoís been on a diet, you know how bland the food can be sometimes. With foods like rice cakes itís no secret why you lose weight, if the foods taste like carboard.

For everyone whoís had this experience there is hope. You should look at the Mediterranean Diet. The Mediterranean Diet isnít a new fad or quick loss weight scheme, in fact itís been around for over 40 years. However itís taken science that long to fugure out what it was and why it works. The Mediterranean is a diverse region that is made up of 16 countries along the Mediterranean Sea. Countries like France, Spain, Italy and Greece have diverse and different cultures. While the foods are different on a nutritionally level they share many similarities. They contain lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Wine is consumed in moderate amounts daily. Eggs are consumed in moderate amounts, and foods like poultry, fish and dairy are consumed on a limited basis.

However as many nutritionists and scientists are discovering one of the keys to the Mediterranean Diet is the oils. Plant based oils are extensively used throughout the region, with olive oil being the most popular. Olive oil is a monounsaturated fat, which means itís good for the body and does things like lower your cholesterol. Do to the rich fats in the foods and those used in the cooking the foods of the region are known for the full rich textures and flavors that they have. In fact itís these fats which give the foods a luxurious ďmouth feelĒ. However eating foods rich in fats is not without some sacrifices, as fats have more than double the amount of calories of similarly sized portions of protein or carbohydrates. Learning to manage and control your portions is a key aspect of anybody who wants to follow the Mediterranean Diet.
