Why Choose a Mediterranean Diet?

Why Choose a Mediterranean Diet?

Do you tend to give up on your diet two days in? 


Are you sick of eating bland food and going to bed hungry when you’re just trying to make a lifestyle change?


This diet is not some new-age creation. It’s based on the real diet that people in Italy and Greece ate in the 60s. 


It’s filled with healthy foods like vegetables, nuts, fish, and eggs. The best part? A glass of red wine is recommended each day! 


What are the rules?


There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to the Mediterranean diet. If you follow the general guidelines of to-eat and not-to-eat, you’re on the right path. 


You should skip the following: 


  • Refined sugars
  • White bread
  • Pasta 
  • Processed foods

But these foods are allowed:

  • Vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Whole grains
  • Legumes
  • Poultry 
  • Dairy 
  • Healthy fats 
  • Naya’s cauliflower hummus, of course!

Can I eat out?


One of the biggest perks of following a Mediterranean diet is that it’s flexible and most restaurants can accommodate your restrictions. When in doubt, opt for the fish or seafood option. 


How do I track my diet?


Another great aspect of the Mediterranean diet is that there is no need to count calories, track your macros, or do daily weigh-ins. As long as you’re following the foods to eat and eating in moderation, you’ll be golden.
