Study Affirms Health Benefits of “Mediterranean Diet”

Here’s some good news for the thousands of people who follow a “Mediterranean diet.” Replacing white bread and pasta carbohydrates with unsaturated fat from avocados, olive oil and nuts can improve heart health even if it doesn’t lead to losing weight, according to researchers from John Hopkins who studied the eating habits of 164 people.

The Mediterranean diet, which emphasizes healthy fats, fruits and vegetables, helped regulate blood sugar and insulin levels for study participants, according to a news release from John Hopkins.

Patients should always consult their doctor before starting a new diet.
