In brief: Diet that was...

...Consumed by people living near the mediterranean sea (but no longer).
The pyramid emphasizes at is base, plant based foods such as fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, and whole grains, and as the foundation of the pyramid narrows upwards, it adds olive oil, fish, meat, chicken, wine, and dairy foods in smaller amounts.

In brief: Gold Standard Eating

Launched by the Oldways Preservation and Exchange Trust in 1993, the pyramid stands in contrast to the Standard American Diet especially.
It is based on the dietary traditions of Crete, Greece and southern Italy circa 1960 at a time when the rates of chronic disease among populations there were among the lowest in the world/
