OVERVIEW Go Pro
It has become nearly axiomatic that the Mediterranean diet is a healthy eating pattern. But why did we come to believe that? How exactly do we define a Mediterranean diet? And what specific attributes of the diet are health-promoting?
In this program, we dissect research surrounding the traditional Mediterranean diet. At first glance, nutrition seems like a confusing and frankly contradictory field. But if we take a deeper dive into the dietary patterns that have been shown to be associated with good health, common patterns gradually emerge. And once you understand the underlying mechanisms, you can apply them to any style of eating that you happen to favor.
And we don’t stop there. We also examine the exciting potential benefits associated with fasting - ironically, the absence of nutrition. And take an evidence-based approach to smoothies for those who want to efficiently enhance their phytochemical intake.
