Let’s bite into it and see what the buzz is about.
Currently in vogue, the most popular “healthy diet” across the globe nowadays is the Mediterranean diet. This allows for the consumption of nuts, olive oil, whole grains, vegetables, fruits, legumes, and fish. It also permits the consumption of dark chocolate and red wine.
But according to recent research, a Mediterranean diet with a “Green” twist could potentially be more effective.
The Green Mediterranean diet (Green Med) is a variant of the Mediterranean diet and is inspired by the eating habits of people in Greece and Italy. Simply put, if you choose a green Mediterranean diet, you must eliminate red and processed meats and eat a lot more leafy green vegetables.
According to the National Library of Medicine, “The Green Med diet, supplemented with walnuts, green tea, and mankai and lower in meat/poultry, may amplify the beneficial cardiometabolic effects of the Mediterranean diet.”
For those suffering from diabetes, cardiovascular disease, depression, and cognitive decline, the green MED diet has been shown to be more effective. If you have a health issue related to the previously mentioned treatments, you may try this diet after consulting your doctor.
The Atkins diet is named after cardiologist Dr. Robert C. Atkins, is a popular low-carbohydrate eating plan developed in the 1960s. The key to this Atkin’s diet plan is to avoid food with high carbs, eat as much protein as possible and still lose weight.
While the Green Med diet advises against red meat, the Atkins diet allows meat consumption, with the rest of the rules on eating habits remaining the same.
