Learn the wondrous benefits of living on The Mediterranean Diet in this enjoyable book TODAY !

Everyone has their own take on the ideal meal. In most cases though, it consists of high fat, high salt and high sugar foods. Indeed this has been the notion of home cooking made by good old mom.

Who is not used to the smell of bacon and pancakes at the breakfast table anyway? Come dinner time, a huge slab of red meat with a side of mashed potatoes and buttered vegetables is ripe for the picking. This is how most people would picture the perfect meal.

The result is that this kind of eating habit and diet has gone down as a lifestyle. It takes root from the post-war victory that the Western World enjoyed and became one of the most visible evidence of their prosperity.

Sadly, the same eating habits have made America and other parts of the Western World a haven for heart attack and other heart disease-related deaths per year. Nowadays, most people struggle to regain their health and live a healthier lifestyle.

This sudden health consciousness has prompted scientists and nutritionist to look for healthier eating habits.

Over the years, they began to realize that the future of nutritious diets is actually in traditional cuisine. In the 1950s and 1960s, researchers noted of the relatively low budget but healthier diets enjoyed by people in the Mediterranean region.

While America and the rest of the Western World celebrated their post-war victory and prosperity, the Mediterranean region continued living the way they have been for centuries.

This is actually the very reason for the low number of cases of coronary heart disease and other such conditions. Researchers were stunned to find that plant-based diets are actually better than animal-based diets.

As the evidence points out, the Mediterranean diet is definitely a healthier way to eat. This diet is actually based on the diet of a region and not just once country.

The Mediterranean is the world�s largest inland sea which borders Europe, Africa and Asia. Around fifteen countries including France, Spain, Greece, Portugal and Italy among others call this region home.

The Mediterranean diet and way of life may take root from various countries but they do follow a similar pattern. All in all, this diet consists of whole grain, legumes, dried beans and a wide range of fruits and vegetables. Red meats are taken in small amounts and in some cases not at all.
It is this kind of diet that has helped people from this part of the world to stay healthy.
