it so mediterranean, ancestory


ive written about it before and plan to again and again
that mediterranean diet thats so simple and good for you

vegetables of all types unless they have been poisoned by pesticides
whole grains-thats not white bread but whole wheat bread brown rice etc
legumes-beans beans and more beans
less red meat and dairy-lean meats and fish
less salt and sugar
limited red wine
olive oil

from realbeauty,com here are 5 reasons

its heart healthy
its has the good fats as not all fats are bad for you
it lowers blood pressure and lowers your risk for heart disease

prevents cancer
some veggies and legumes have antitoxidants that have cancer preventing

boosts testosterone
apparently men who consume a lot of omega 3 foods have increased
testosterone levels
move over little blue pill
think how much veggies especially leafy ones could be bought with
the price of the little blue pill

it helps to lose weight
consuming the healthy foods in this diet like vegetables and whole grains
over over consumption of processed foods helps you lose weight

cuts down on chronic diseases
diabetes alzheimers disease and heart disease are less in those peoples
who eat a mediterranean diet

and of course those of you who are trying to get bathing suit ready for
the summer it helps you fit in that suit

then remember this
i found from a facebook friend
