Ten Myths About the Mediterranean Diet

You can eat desserts regularly and still manage your weight.

Eating too many desserts isn’t good for your midsection or your overall weight. People of the Mediterranean coast primarily eat a diet full of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes, and not every meal includes a luxurious dessert. The region does offer some of the most delicious traditional desserts, such as baklava, but these dishes are served for special occasions (such as holidays or weddings) maybe once or twice a year.

For the most part, Mediterranean folks eat fruit for dessert or enjoy low-calorie cookies such as biscotti. Portion sizes of these desserts are also smaller than you may be used to; one to two biscotti is plenty.
