Mediterranean Anyone?

I did a little research on the Mediterranean diet and am going to combine it with a low-carb diet. I prefer to customize my diet by using common sense and paying attention to the amount of fat, protein and carbs I’m putting into my body. Basically, weight loss happens when the number of calories burned off by the body’s metabolism exceed the number of calories consumed. Easy-Peasy!

Have you heard of the Mediterranean diet?

It’s the diet plan that cardiologists are recommending to the patients at risk for heart disease and for those who already have problems. There’s a great deal of information in The Complete Mediterranean Diet, but it’s presented in a comprehensive and easy-to-understand manner.

Dr. Michael Ozner wrote The Complete Mediterranean Diet after becoming a top advocate of preventing heart disease. He’s a cardiologist and national speaker on the topic of how to treat and prevent heart attacks and strokes.

Reports of obesity, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and high cholesterol have been connected to the way we eat in a straightforward, scientific way. But, those who live around the Mediterranean Sea and enjoy a life of fresh and wholesome foods don’t have the same problems others do.
