Tomatoes and tomato products are a staple food in the Mediterranean diet; they contain lycopene. Cut a whole tomato and spread it with olive oil and some basil as part of your side dish or include them in your salads. Whole Grains. Have a piece of whole wheat or whole grain bread with your main meals except with pasta. Have whole wheat pasta 2 or 3 times a week. It is low in calories, and the fiber enhances the feeling of fullness.
Eat dried beans, lentils, or garbanzo beans 2 or 3 times a week. Nutrition experts at the Michigan State University tell us that eating 2 to 4 cups of cooked legumes every week could boost our heart health. Dry beans have fiber that could reduce cholesterol from the body. Eat legumes and a piece of whole grain bread to have the perfect protein. Vegetable protein does not put a load on kidneys as animal protein does. Have a handful of nuts as a snack in your morning break.
Nuts are also a staple food in Mediterranean countries and are high in monounsaturated fat, the one that does not get stuck in the arteries. Read the food label and be aware of portions because nuts are high in calories. Scientific studies have found that almonds and walnuts could be the healthiest choices.
Olive oil. Use olive oil in your meals both to cook and as a condiment in your salads. Use olive oil and lemon as a dip in your salads. Fish and sea food. Have fish and sea food two or three times a week.

Salmon and sardines are excellent choices because they provide omega-3 oils, oils that the body needs but cannot create in enough quantities. Garlic and aromatic herbs. Use garlic and aromatic herbs as condiment. Garlic could be the leading contributor to the low incidence of high blood pressure in Mediterranean countries .
Sample Mediterranean Diet Menu A 28 day diet plan would introduce changes gradually.
Studies have shown that small changes over time are an effective way to make lifelong habits. Start with the elimination of processed foods and increase fruit and vegetable. Continue by adding more beans and switch from other oils or butter to extra virgin olive oil.
Limit seafood, poultry and eggs to a few times per week each and reduce red meat to no more than a portion a month.
And finally focus on dairy products and avoid milk, cream and butter. Eat a minimum of five servings of fruits and vegetables daily. Choose foods rich in fiber, vitamins and phytonutrients. Eat legumes at least 8 times a week.
Legumes are a low fat, fiber filled and a good source of protein. Limit refined grains and choose whole grains. Lower fat dairy options should replace full fat dairy products. Olive oil would be limited to a tablespoon per day. The human body requires dietary fat, and plant based olive oil is a heart healthy choice. Either you have more weight to lose and need to go back on the Stat Plan for an additional 2 weeks and start the cycle over or you have reached your goal weight and you can move onto the Maintain phase of the diet.
This third phase of the diet is what sets this diet apart from other diets I've tried. This phase of the diet is how you will need to eat for the rest of your life to ensure your weight stays off.
This is a healthy, science based balanced diet. I have seen several reviews complaining about this book and rating it low, siting the fact that you have to exercise and you lose "freedom" to eat what you want. I say these reviews are ridiculous! This diet was written by a medical professional and there is no magic pill.
Some people think once you've read the book all of the weight falls off with no other effort. That is not the case.

This book tells you what you NEED to do to get the weight off, keep it off, and restore your health, as well as prevent disease. Yes I criticized others for rating this book unfairly so I feel that it's necessary for me to hold myself to the same standard. I am going to start this diet and do the first two phases.
I will then come back in approximately a month and let you know how this diet works, how I felt on the diet, and I will give my final rating for the book. Obviously if the diet works according to what is written I will keep the 5 star rating.
I will try to follow the diet exactly as written. Look for the final review on this book around the second week in May So here's my update after 1 week on Dr. Travis' Stat Plan This week has not been as tough as I thought it would be. Travis says if you break you addiction to sugar you will not want to eat as much and you won't crave more sugar. I am excited to say what he says is true! I am a sugar-holic! My favorite food is bread and potatoes and I have a health condition called panhypopituitarism.
This causes me to have to take steroids daily which make you hungry and thirsty as hell and thyroid meds for low thyroid.
This makes it extra hard for me to lose weight. It also causes me to fatigue easily so exercise is a tiny bit harder. I'm not telling you this so you can throw me a pity party but I am telling you this so you can understand how well this diet works. I excercised minimally. I am excited to say what he says is true!
Our guide to the Mediterranean diet
I am a sugar-holic! My favorite food is bread and potatoes and I have a health condition called panhypopituitarism. This causes me to have to take steroids daily which make you hungry and thirsty as hell and thyroid meds for low thyroid.
This makes it extra hard for me to lose weight.
It also causes me to fatigue easily so exercise is a tiny bit harder. I'm not telling you this so you can throw me a pity party but I am telling you this so you can understand how well this diet works. I excercised minimally. I know lazy right? Ok so this week in only 7 days I lost 8 pounds!!!! That's right over a pound a day!!! If I had exercised I'm sure I would have done better but I am striving to improve each week following this plan and it is very doable.
I am a mom of 2 kids, my husband is gone a lot, and I babysit kids all day, run them around to extra activities and am always busy. If I can do it, then you can too. IMO this book is 5 stars and worth every star! My husband went on this plan with me and he is a severe diabetic. He takes 4 shots of insulin per day ranging from units of insulin per shot. His blood sugar still ranges in the range. After a couple of days on this diet his blood sugar went to and his insulin usage is down to 2 shots per day of units per shot.
Diabetics run get this book NOW! This very well can and will save your life if you are able to stick with it.
Because diabetes is so close to my my heart I am adding his update in this review as well. I think it's important for those out there that are living with diabetes and struggling to control it. In the first week he lost 7 pounds and did not follow the plan as exactly as I did. He had to have an extra snack between meals that I did not have but it was necessary to control his blood sugar. I have 1 more week left on the stat plan and then it's time to move on to the restore phase.I read this book but haven't implemented the program.
View 2 comments. Both lunch and dinner should include a minimum of three vegetable servings.
I do recommend buying a hard back copy because I have both and the kindle copy is very hard to look back through to find recipes and food list.
I have seen several reviews complaining about this book and rating it low, siting the fact that you have to exercise and you lose "freedom" to eat what you want. Yes, the first two phases require some restrictions, but if you want to shed some pounds, you have to cut some things out of your diet. This third phase of the diet is what sets this diet apart from other diets I've tried.
It is developed to make you lose a lot of weight fast and break your addiction from sugar.
