Mediterranean diet is well-known because it is considered to be one of the best diets for preventing heart disease and is responsible for longer life expectancy. Everyone would be able to follow this diet, because it consists of a variety of vegetables, fruits and olive oil. Many, consider Mediterranean cooking is as a way to loose weight. However it is not actually a diet, while it is neither a low carbohydrate diet nor a low-fat diet. It is a basic idea of how frequent and in what quantities we should consume each kind of food. Its great advantage is that it is a healthy and balanced way of eating.
