People who live in the Mediterranean are all healthy.

The Mediterranean coast covers a large region including parts of Africa, Morocco, Greece, Turkey, France, and Italy, just to name a few. Not all countries or all regions practice the same healthy habits. For instance, people in northern Italy more commonly use lard and butter in cooking, which tips their diet’s balance toward more saturated fats than you see in southern Italy, where people primarily use olive oil.

In general, the Mediterranean lifestyle is inspired by the Greek island of Crete and other areas of Greece, plus Spain, Morocco, and southern Italy.
