Mediterranean diet

You’ll find the Mediterranean diet on many lists of the best diets.

It’s based on the eating habits of Mediterranean cultures such as those in Greece and Southern Italy during the mid-1900s. Studies show it’s related to greater longevity and lower rates of heart disease.

This diet is largely plant-based and emphasizes greater intake of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and unsaturated fat sources like olive oil and nuts. Meat is seen as a condiment and most animal products come from fish, seafood and some poultry.
