Eating out means that people get to eat more junk foods that are high in calories, excess red meat, foods with high sugar concentrations or very high salt content. As a result, people have been suffering from a myriad of diseases ranging from cancers, strokes, obesity, and cardiac diseases, just to mention a few.

The Mediterranean Diet
This diet is found among the inhabitants of the countryside parts of Italy, France, Greece, Spain, or any other Mediterranean country. In these places, there are people who still cook using traditional methods.

Takeaway points from the people who still eat the Mediterranean diet
People eat plainly
Their foods have not been processed, refined, or have had their nutrients and fiber removed. Due to this, the foods are whole and hence are beneficial in preventing diseases. The meals are light, though satisfying, mainly because of the high fiber content.

The cooking style is simple, not complex
The cooking involves fresh and regular foods such as legumes, vegetables, grains, and seafood. They garnish with little olive oil, some herbs, spices, and citrus. Steaming is the method applied to grains and legumes, with herbs and spices for flavor. Normally, foods are grilled or boiled in sauce or water to which flavorings have been added. Other foods are baked, in which case, extra virgin oil, herbs and a little lemon juice or dry white wine are put to use. Simple salads from fresh vegetables are a common component of meals.

You should endeavor to adopt this traditional diet as part of your lifestyle. The fundamental thing is to eat vegetables, legumes, fruits, nuts, seeds, fish, whole grains, and extra-virgin olive oil. Take some red meat occasionally, but put aside beverages sweetened with sugar, refined oils, polished grains, added sugars, and highly processed foods.
