and it’s considered to be one of the healthiest in the world! But thanks to UNESCO, it’s not just healthy, it’s also a piece of human heritage. Here’s hoping they give love to my Sunday Pizza Tradition next year… The Mediterranean Diet includes plant-based foods, as well as “healthy” fats and so on. Plus, and this is serious, limiting the amount of red meat -- i.e. mammal meats. Grilled fish is a
popular item, as are other seafoods. AND, which is pretty rare, it offers an alcoholic component -- a bit of red wine. The problem is, if you look at U.S. magazines and blogs for the “Mediterranean Diet,” as we see it. You’d find lists of restrictions and requirements of what to eat, what not to eat, and how to prepare your meals. That’s how American’s see a “diet.” In the U.S. “diet” doesn’t
mean it’s primary dictionary definition: “the kinds of food that a person, animal, or community habitually eats,” most of us think of the tertiary definition, “a special course of food to which one restricts oneself, either to lose weight or for medical reasons.” The “Mediterranean Diet” is the former not the latter. It’s a way of living and eating, not a list of restrictions and requirements. UNESCO writes, “The Mediterranean diet involves
a set of skills, knowledge, rituals, symbols and traditions concerning crops, harvesting, fishing, animal husbandry,” -- holy crap -- “conservation, processing, cooking, and particularly the sharing and consumption of food.” The foundation of the diet? Eating together. Social exchange of communication during a meal, neighborliness, affirmation, intercultural dialog, hospitality.-- Whew -- You can’t buy this regional diet at a store -- it’s literally about changing your life. And of course, red wine helps with all
those things too. Better nutrition has been connected to longer, healthier lives and even things like overall height gains, better eyesight, and prevention of heart disease and Alzheimer's -- to name a few. The Mediterranean Diet adds heart health to that as well, lowered levels of stress and anxiety. And it’s not just about what you’re eating or not eating! Numerous studies have shown social interaction and support make people physically and mentally more
healthy. The concept of ‘Social buffering’ is part of this diet -- where people get together and socialize, interact and share. On top of that, Greece -- one of the countries in the Mediterranean for the geographically challenged -- incorporates intermittent fasting into their lifestyle diet thanks to the number of religiously motivated fasting days in the Greek Orthodox tradition. We actually have a whole video about the science of fasting. It seems
to me, incorporating even a few of these things into our lives would likely benefit us all. The “mediterranean diet” doesn’t mean going to the Greek restaurant down the street a lot, but maybe invite your friends over to eat some vegetables you grew (or, like me, found at a farmer’s market)! Talk! Use some olive oil! -- And of course, make them bring the red wine. We can't do episodes like these with

Eating slowly is one of the best things you can do to lose weight. As a society, we tend to rush through everything, including our meals. If you eat too quickly, your brain doesn't have a chance to realize that your body is full. Therefore, you continue to crave more food than you actually need.
Shedding excess pounds and keeping your muscles in shape may lengthen your life. Your heart will have to work less to carry blood around your body, minimizing stress on your circulatory system. This measure along with regular exercise can reduce your risk of developing more serious problems later on in your life.
One of the best ways to start your weight loss program is to find ways to reduce the stress in your life. Stress can cause cortisol levels to rise and keep blood sugar levels unstable, thus resulting in unneeded weight gain. Stress can also make you more likely to overeat when you are upset about something.
Downsize your plate to lose more weight. Traditional plates are bigger in diameter than is necessary to hold an appropriate amount of food. The desire to fill your plate and subsequently empty your plate is usually counterproductive to weight loss. Try using a child-sized plate, this will allow you to keep up your habits in a healthier way.
Many people tend to eat out of boredom. When we engage in this type of eating behavior, the pounds are going to add up. We are not really hungry when we eat like this, it's all just extra calories. Notice if you feel bored, and go for a snack. If you do, try and find other actives that you enjoy, and participate in them instead, and you will see the weight fall off.
A sneaky form of weight-loss sabotage lurks in your cupboards and cabinets. If you want to simplify your efforts at losing weight, first, clean out your cabinets of all high-fat, high-sugar, low-fiber foods. It may seem wasteful, but if those foods aren't in the house, you won't be tempted to eat them in the first place.
A great nutritional tip is to say goodbye to donuts. Donuts are notorious for being very high in fat, and they will sabotage any attempt at trying to lose weight or get fit. Instead, try spreading some natural peanut butter onto a few slices of whole wheat bread.
Before you attempt to take any weight-loss pills or supplements, you should always read the ingredients list and check them online to see if they're dangerous or not. A product that says it boosts your metabolism might sound good, but this product might also be dangerous if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure.
When the weather is nice outside, try taking a quick, brisk walk before you eat lunch or dinner. You will benefit by burning a few extra calories, and chances are after some exercise you will be less likely to eat foods that are unhealthy. You will also feel really good, and will have a lower chance of overeating.
When you are cooking your food, it is easy to make to much and overeat. As soon as you are done making your plate, try wrapping up any leftovers and putting them away. When there is no more food out, getting seconds may not seem like such a good idea, and you will eat less calories.
You have a choice to make; lose weight or keep talking and planning. The best plans are only as good as the actions behind them. Let others talk while you succeed. With these tips you can make a valid start. You might just be the key to stopping the others from talking and start succeeding on their own as well. Motivate yourself and make your plan work!
