The hypothesis of this diet is that people that live around the Mediterranean are healthier because of the diet they naturally follow.

Ease for Dieter*


  • If you don’t need structure this could be a good diet.
  • It might be more difficult to get exercise and stick to portion control.

(*My impression is based on my research and how hard I think it would be to maintain for 1, 6, 8, 10, 20 weeks. Your experience may vary.)

Food Emphasis

  • Portion control will need to be watched
  • Focuses on what to eat every day, a few times a week and a few times a month.
  • Eat mindfully
  • Lists of Eat, Eat in Moderation, Eat Rarely, and Don’t eat foods

Maintenance Plan

  • Lifetime.

Suggested Activity Level

  • Activity each day.
