BOISE, ID--(Marketwired - September 20, 2016) - Those in the Mediterranean region and surrounding areas, generally report much lower instances of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and various illnesses associated with chronic inflammation than individuals within the U.S. The Mediterranean Diet, which consists of eating primarily plant-based foods, sensible portions of lean meats, heart-healthy oils in favor of butters or margarines, and the moderate intake of antioxidant rich red wine, is traditionally considered one of the healthiest diets to gain mainstream attention. Consistent use of olive oil, fish and nuts contributes to a diet that is rich in fatty acid consumption which significantly contributes to heart health.
The Mediterranean diet when adhered to does encourage weight loss however, Dr. Rao - Medical Director of Diet Doc states that, "Since the Mediterranean diet relies heavily upon carbohydrate calories, some overweight people with insulin resistance and blood sugar issues may need to minimize the carbohydrate aspects of this particular diet." This would suggest that The Mediterranean diet is tailored more toward those who wish to create a healthier lifestyle rather than to optimize weight loss.
In addition, given the diet's emphasis on low to moderate protein intake, this sudden change in eating habits could potentially result in lost muscle mass as maintaining moderate to high muscle mass is key in the fat burning process. Dr. Rao explains, "When dieting, adequate protein intake is essential to prevent muscle loss and often when general guidelines are followed, this falls short and some of the weight being lost is actually muscle and not fat." Given the potential for nutritional imbalances within even the healthiest of diets, Diet Doc has customized its weight loss programs by calculating individual diet macros to ensure that lean muscle is preserved as opposed to the simple reduction of protein intake.
