the best diet for "healthy eating" and is the "easiest diet to follow." Numerous studies show the diet has been linked to stronger bones and a longer life as well as increased hearth health
and weight loss. It also reduces the risk of high cholesterol, dementia, diabetes and memory loss. The diet consists of plant-based meals along with fruits, beans, seeds and nuts. It also primarily stays away from
refined sugar and flour. Instead of fats such as butter, the Mediterranean diet places a big emphasis on extra virgin olive oil.
