The mediterranean way of eating ( I wont call it a diet because that’s a short term fix, not a long term lifestyle change) is well renowned for its healthy benefits, and involves eating lots of fish, fruit vegetables pulses and olive oil. White meat like chicken is eaten a great deal , red meat very little. The odd slug of red wine with your food is also of benefit ( that if you happen to like red wine!)
I follow this way of eating, partly because I am half Italian, but have recently taken it on with a bit more rigour. I eat very little , if any, red meat, but have plenty of chicken, fish ( salmon and tuna are especial favourites because they are oily) fresh fruit and vegetables and at least 6 pieces of fruit a day as a substitute for crisps and chocolate, which I no longer eat. Neither do I have butter or any kind of bread spread; I have bread rarely, but when I do, its usually stone baked rolls containing olives (which you can get from Lidl’s)I have also cut out takeaway food in its entirety, and no longer snack between meals. I don’t drink much coffee - perhaps only a cup per day, if at all- and no alcohol, other than a small glass of red wine ( I don’t drink this daily, because it gives me headaches) perhaps once a week.I drink plenty of bottled water( I use a mango water bottle, which measures your water intake and is portable and durable, which you can find on amazon) I have coconut milk on cereals and skimmed milk in coffee when (I do drink it, but I only need a pint of this a week and seldom finish that!) I’ve also cut out sugar, though I will have granulated sweetener in tea.
I must admit that I felt a bit rubbish for a while, because it was almost like a detox, persistence paid off and now I feel really good. My fatigue levels have greatly improved, as have other symptoms such as pain and spasticity. I also lost 3 stone in weight!
If you are unsure where to start, just try googling the mediterranean diet -loads of info will come up about it - its well worth a try!
