Based on the eating patterns of people living in countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, the Mediterranean Diet emphasizes eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, legumes, olive oil, herbs, and fish, while adding in moderation poultry, eggs, cheese, and yogurt. The diet is not specifically designed for weight loss, but because the diet includes plenty of protein and fiber, many find they can cut back on calories and still feel full. Research has shown this diet to decrease risk of heart disease and lower "bad" LDL cholesterol.

Mediterranean Diet Reviews
Pros: The Mediterranean diet is for me the best choice for a person like me that like variety in the food. I found countless choices of food combination that help me to manage my type 1 diabetes and at same time never became boring of the food.
Cons: Maybe I am wrong but I never found anything wrong with this diet.
Overall: I am following the Mediterranean diet since the last 11 years. I have no prob with the combination of the veg, legums, beans, nuts etc. It help me a lot to control my numbers. And it help me to loose weight. In my case was really helpful and cause I love to cook, I start learning different recipes from the south of Italy, from Egypt, Morocco, Greece that are some of the countries that use this way of eating. This way I made my diet with more variety and I enjoy it a lot.By
