How to follow a Mediterranean-style diet
The Mediterranean diet varies by country and region, so it has a range of definitions.
In general, it’s high in vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, beans, cereals, grains, fish, and unsaturated fats such as olive oil.
It usually includes a low intake of meat and dairy foods.
The Mediterranean diet is very similar to the government’s healthy eating advice, which is set out in the Eatwell Guide.
