Here's Your Complete Shopping List to Start the Mediterranean Diet
US News & World Report voted the Mediterranean diet as 2018's best overall diet and it's no wonder why. In addition to being effective for weight loss and beneficial to gut and heart health, the "diet" is fairly easy to follow. It's actually less of a diet and more so a regional nutritional philosophy. It's much less restrictive than keto, for example, because it encourages eating more of certain foods rather than eliminating groups altogether. Plus, it permits pairing wine with your meal from time to time.
Overall, the Mediterranean diet is heavy in fresh produce, grains, fish, beans, and olive oil (obviously), and light in meat, dairy, and eggs. Dieting seriously doesn't get any easier than this.
