Fish, olive, veggies: Olive oil, veggies, fish are the staples of the mediterranean diet and they are all packed with healthy nutrients and antioxidants. Of course the way of preparation is also important. Raw, stewed, or lightly grilled without butter or heavy sauces. My personal favorites are lentils, okra, eggplants, tomaties, peppers and wild mushrooms. Studies have shown that medi diet decreased cardiac mortality. ...Read more
Small fish are good:
Yes, sardines daily are great.
High in protein and in omega-3 fats, sardines are also delicious.
They do not accumulate mercury or toxins like large fish do: they do not get big enough.
I recommend sardines, salmon and herring in this Wall Street Journal piece on longevity and omega-3s: http://www. Wsj. Com/articles/SB10001424052748703837004575013393566949312 ...Read more

Yes, modestly: Depending on how bad your baseline diet is, adopting & maintaining a mediterranean diet enriched with polyunsaturated oils (olive), emphasis on plant-based foods, fruits, legumes, nuts, & use of meat, if any, as a condiment rather than the main course, will modestly reduce cholesterol, assuming your weight is stable. Weight loss will spuriously lower the cholesterol more, until weight stabilizes. ...Read more

Hello. How can I get rid of celulite? I have it on my thighs and a little on my knees. Currently I am working out and having a mediterranean diet.
Difficult but can do: Hello AnaV: This is a difficult thing to do but many of the treatments are not going to help when using creams and topical treatments.

This can be achieved in looking for the specific articles that will show you the appropriate treatments. Womenslife. Today look for cellulite. ...Read more

I am currently on medifast a diet plan that is 800-1000 calories a day and 75-85 carbs im on a night schedule need to flip it around is it save to not eat to stay up all night and flip my schedule or should I eat?
You need energy: To fuel your activities when you are awake. The Medifast program can work but it is a very low amount of calories and you need to eat all of them. Take in about 200 calories every two hours while you are awake, whether it is at night or during day. It will be OK to go without food when you are sleeping. Hope this helps...Good wishes:) ...Read more
I'm on a strict diet plan, being gluten free, I rarely go over 1, 200 calories per day and I excercise for an hour a day, I'm 6.7 and 260, & not losing?
A couple of things: Don't think I'm dismissing your issue at hand as it's an important problem, but based on your height, weight and age, your basal metabolic rate (the baseline amount of calories your body needs just for daily functioning) would far exceed 1200kcals/day. So if you were really only eating 1200kcals/day and didn't even move you should be losing weight! ...Read more

Am 13 and female and wondering if and what diet pill is best for me? I started dieting two weeks ago. 2000 calories a day
There is no diet pill recommended for a 13 year old girl. Instead you should focus on a healthy diet and exercise regimen. If you need help ask your parent or guardian to schedule a visit with a nutritionist or registered dietician for assistance. As far as exercise is concerned, team sports are a great way to get in exercise and lose weight. Also running, walking, or riding a bike are great as well.
You are so young, it would be wise to start practicing a healthy lifestyle and losing weight through diet and exercise as opposed to relying on diet pills that could prove to be very dangerous.
Best of luck. ...Read more
