Nowadays they too eat too much fast food and not enough fiber and fruit.

  1. That the inhabitants of the Mediterranean region were so healthy is probably not only due to nutrition. But their lifestyle probably also plays a role.

  1. The book 'The Mediterranean Diet' by the Greek doctor Fedon A. Lindberg helps you compose menus, choose products and thus improve your health. The effectiveness of a diet depends on many factors. Losing a lot of weight quickly is never wise, so avoid the so-called crash diets. If you revert to his or her old diet, you will quickly regain the lost kilos. People who are seriously overweight (BMI> 30) are better off consulting a dietitian for a tailor-made diet than following a diet independently.
