Welcome to part two of my Nutritional Lifestyle series. This one focuses on the the popular Mediterranean eating plan. What is the Mediterranean Diet? This article will serve as a simple guideline explaining the foods allowed and avoided for those interested in following this lifestyle. While you're asking yourself what is the Mediterranean Diet, be sure you talk about it with your doctor before getting started.

1. Can Eat Carbs

Yes, low carb and keto are highly beneficial nutritional lifestyles that you can follow. They have their own set of guidelines discussed in part one of the Nutritional Lifestyle series but there are other options. Some people even start with low carb or keto to lose weight and switch to the Mediterranean to maintain their current weight. Whole grains including whole wheat bread, whole wheat pasta, and whole oats are staples in the Mediterranean eating plan. Refined grains, such as white bread and cereal, should be avoided at all costs. This also means that you can eat as many fruits and vegetables as you want - from bananas to sweet potatoes. A lifestyle with a heavy focus on fruits and vegetables is important because your body needs fiber and vitamins. The average American diet is simply too focused on processed foods, sugar, and sodium.
