Food Tip A Mediterranean diet benefits your heart and your waistline. Dieters lost more weight on a Mediterranean diet than on a low-fat or low-carb one.

Follow a heart-healthy Mediterranean diet to reap benefits around your waist as well. New research suggests that a Mediterranean-style diet, in addition to being good for your overall health, may be the best eating plan for shedding excess weight. People who were moderately obese lost more weight on a Mediterranean-style food plan than those who adhered to low-fat or low-carbohydrate diets. At Cleveland Clinic Wellness, we advocate the Mediterranean way of eating, because it encourages heart-healthy fats and fiber-rich grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables. Following this kind of diet can help normalize cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Losing weight is just another heart-healthy benefit. To get started on a Mediterranean-style diet.
