What We’re Reading: What is a Mediterranean Diet?

Text Size:

On The Diabetes Self-Management Blog, we’ve featured multiple posts about how eating a "Mediterranean diet" can boost your health. (For example, see Amy Campbell’s post "Mediterranean Madness: FAQs About a Centuries-Old ‘Diet’" and my post "Studies Find Benefits for Fish and Omega-3 Consumption.")

This week, in The NY Times’ health blog, “Well,” Tara Parker-Pope helps clarify what a Mediterranean diet actually is with her comprehensive post, “Confusion About Mediterranean Cuisine.” Her blog entry answers some common questions about Mediterranean eating patterns (and the social practices that go along with them), provides links to stories and studies of this way of eating, and includes a picture of one Mediterranean diet pyramid and links to another. The comments section on her blog entry also has some good discussion going and is worth a read.

Has this feature cleared up any misconceptions you had about Mediterranean diets? Or does it leave you with more questions? Let us know with a comment here.
