Mediterranean diet

  1. Mediterranean diet now proven to cut heart and stroke risk

    The No.1 PROVEN remedy for heart health (Hint: it’s NOT statins)  

    There’s a TIME-TESTED secret to a stronger, better, healthier heart.

    This one has been used since Biblical times for better health and a longer life… and now, it’s backed by the latest cutting-edge research.

    In ONE STEP, you can:

    • LOSE weight
    • STOP a stroke
    • PROTECT your heart
    • PREVENT diabetes
    • …and more!

    It’s even been proven to help keep bones strong as you grow old.

    But today, let’s focus on heart protection, because the latest research proves yet again that when it comes to your ticker…

    You need to make some time for the Mediterranean diet!

    Now, I know “diet” isn’t a popular word…

    But in truth, this is the one diet that feels like you’re hardly on one; instead, you’ll lead a full and satisfying lifestyle – and it’s amazingly easy to follow.

    So friends, don’t think of it as a diet…

    Think of it instead as the world’s greatest heart “drug.”

    The BENEFIT of drugs… WITHOUT the drugs

    You know the story with meds that are supposed to “protect” your heart.

    Even when they work… even when they deliver… even when they help ensure you never have a heart problem… they can undermine those very same benefits with side effects.

    Statins, for example, are often touted for their heart benefits. I don’t buy it; most of the studies behind them have more conflicts than a “Real Housewives” episode.

    But even if you believe the highly suspect research, you know the drugs can cause everything from immediate problems such as agonizing muscle pain to long-term risks like diabetes.

    Worth it? Not when you have this OTHER option… because the new study found something that STUNNED mainstream doctors.

    The Mediterranean diet can deliver ALL of the “benefits” of statins and other common drugs… but without the actual drugs or ANY of the risks!

    The long-term study of more than 26,000 older women finds this easy-to-follow lifestyle will dramatically cut your risk of serious heart problems including:

    • Heart attack
    • Stroke
    • Coronary arterial revascularization
    • Coronary death

    Ready for the most important part?

    It works for that all-important and highly elusive “primary prevention,” or preventing a first heart problem.

    That’s critical. Once you have a first heart problem, you’re at risk for everything else. Stop that first one from happening, and you’ll keep your risks nice and low.

    And in the new study, that’s just what happened.

    Women who followed a Mediterranean diet even moderately had a 23 percent lower risk of a first heart problem… while women who followed it even more closely saw that risk plunge by 28 percent.

    They also enjoyed:

    • Less inflammation
    • Better blood sugar control
    • Decreased insulin resistance
    • A lower BMI

    And while the study was on women, men often see the same benefits as well.

    Here are the main tenants of the Mediterranean diet

    You’ll give up most carbs (even whole grains) and limit your red meat.

    Instead, you’ll focus on fatty fish, poultry, and fresh produce.

    And you’ll cook with olive oil, and make liberal use of herbs and spices.

    Don’t forget: on this “diet,” you can absolutely feel free to polish it all off with a glass of wine!

    5 easy Mediterranean diet recipes you need to see

    BREAKFAST: Omelet

    We all love omelets, but everyone is afraid of eggs these days because of the fat and cholesterol… and when they do eat them, they stick to the whites.

    Not on this diet.

    Eggs – yolk and all – are proven to control hunger so you eat less later on, making them the perfect way to start the day.

    Crack a pair of eggs, beat them with some onions, peppers and your favorite herbs and spices. Fry it with a little extra-virgin olive oil, melt a little cheese into it and fold it over.

    Just skip the toast and you’re all set!

    LUNCH: Shredded chicken avocado salad

    This is perfect for leftover chicken. Shred leftover cooked chicken, place it in a bowl with diced onions, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, and chunks of fresh avocado. Toss with 1-2 tbsp of olive oil, juice from a slice of lemon and chopped parsley. Serve on a bed of fresh spinach.

    DINNER

    Appetizer: Lentil soup

    This classic will have everyone reaching for a second bowl… good thing it’s so easy to make!

    Sautee garlic, onions and julienne carrots in olive oil, then add 4-6 cups of chicken or vegetable stock. Add salt and pepper to taste as well as fresh Mediterranean herbs such as rosemary. Dump in your lentils, boil, then reduce to a simmer until the lentils are tender (about 15-20 minutes).

    Main dish: Spatchcock chicken

    Here’s the easiest – and fastest – roast chicken you’ll ever make. Cut the entire bird right down the middle so it’s essentially split in half and flat on your cooking tray.

    Squeeze a lemon over it, then rub with garlic, rosemary and thyme and roast at 450 until the internal temperature hits 165. Keep an eye on it; splitting the bird makes it cook much faster!

    Here’s a trick: you can add a minute or two under the broiler if the skin isn’t crisp enough to your liking.

    Dessert: Mediterranean mousse

    Yes, you can still have dessert. This one is delicious AND healthy… not to mention so easy you can make it in minutes.

    Heat about half a cup of almond milk on low, slowly stirring in 3 ounces of shaved or powdered dark chocolate. Add a dash of vanilla and about a tablespoon of honey and mix it well.

    Pour about 2 cups of green yogurt into a bowl, mix in the chocolate sauce you just made and chill in the fridge 2-3 hours. Serve with strawberry slices or fresh berries and garnish with a sprig of mint.
