Every time you go to the doctor or accompany your mom to her doctor, the Mediterranean diet comes up. It's clear doctors feel it's one of the best diets to follow, but you don't know why. What makes the Mediterranean diet so popular?
The Mediterranean diet isn't hard to follow. It doesn't revolve as much on portion control as it does food choices. The basic premise of this diet is that your meals and snacks focus on vegetables, fish, whole grains, one small glass of red wine, and olive oil. You avoid red meat, sugary treats, and processed items.
