The Mediterranean diet focuses on real foods.

When you swap out less processed and packaged foods and swap in whole, nutritious, real foods in your diet, you get better nutrition without the junk. The Mediterranean diet is a plant-based diet with a strong focus on fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds — the good stuff!

These foods are chockfull of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, all of which help keep you satisfied on fewer calories than the processed stuff has and are correlated with lower weight. That way, you’re better able to keep your portions and calories in check. At the same time, you’re ditching fast foods, foods high in sugar, and high fat meats and dairy, which contribute to obesity.
