The Mediterranean diet stems from countries around the Mediterranean sea and has been show to have multiple health benefits. The foundation of the Mediterranean diet is vegetables, fruits, herbs, nuts, bean and wholegrains, and moderate amounts of dairy, poultry, eggs and fish. Red meat is eaten occasionally. Healthy fats are also central to the Mediterranean diet and olive oil, avocado, nuts and seeds are used often with saturated and trans fats kept to a minimum. This diet is rich in fibre and great for gut health. This meal plan is designed to drive weight loss so carbohydrates are kept to a minimum in the evening e.g. rice is replaced with cauliflower rice and pasta is replaced with zucchini noodles at dinner time. Breakfasts and lunches still have high fibre, wholegrain carbohydrates included. This meal plan is recommended for those that only have a few kgs to lose and would like to just clean up their diet. If weight loss is not your priority, and you just want to eat a healthier diet, you can substitute back in wholegrain rice, pasta etc. in the evening.
