    • Hi Tom - The Mediterranean diet is not necessarily low carb... it emphasizes eating primarily plant-based foods, such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts. Carbs are not the focus...

  • Ok, thanks. This might be good for me after I lose my weight. I definitely have a carb problem right now though.

  • With the meat s do they have to be grass fed cuz they r expensive and do we use all organic Frits and veggie

    • Tambra - The most important thing is that you're creating a healthy habit of cooking whole ingredients, instead of buying processed food.

  • Mediterranean "diet" is considered a lifestyle. You will definitely feel a difference after eating this way.

  • Hi, I am diabetic and would like a healthy way of eating. I feel that this particular diet is right for me. I am a beginner. Any suggestions for me?

    • Hi Gina, We would recommend speaking with your physicians or a dietitian for any starting diet guidance.

  • Hi, Gina again. After meeting with my cardiologist, he recommended the Mediterranean diet for me. Don't know where and how to begin though. Do you have any recommendations for breakfast, lunch, and dinner plans? Would like to start simple and easy including meal prepping. Thanks.

    • I personally would recommend the above meal recipes. Just replace the pasta with brown rice or barley which have a lower glycemic index.I was borderline diabetic. Stay away from white flour, white pasta and grains that are high on the glycemic index.
