The “Mediterranean Diet” – When Details Are Important

Keep it simple: but be clear.

What is “The Mediterranean Diet?”

Does it matter how you define it?

I like this woman’s answer: it is specific (and it is a specific pattern).

She raises an important point that should not go without saying. Namely, that two out of the five Blue Zones are from countries that comprised the original researched sources of the “Mediterranean Diet”, Greece and Italy. There is a connection. Interestingly, the original research was specific as to time period: the diet of the folks (predominately poor) during the 1960’s in certain countries, bordering the Mediterranean.

Details matter until you get the context and understand the pattern, then they don’t matter so much.

If you fail to understand, you become gullible for all kinds of silliness that will be peddled in the name of health. This applies to all kinds of things, btw.

What We Know – What We Don’t Know: Wine and Brain Health

Sometimes when science reveals a truth about nature – what we know – the bigger effect is to realize that this is a clue to how much we do not know: and we don’t know much!

Here, a Study connects a few dots regarding why the daily moderate red wine consumption of The Mediterranean (Greek) Diet bestows benefits to the brain (in terms of protecting against degenerative neurological diseases).

Like so many other truths about nature, it isn’t a story we might have guessed: it is better:-)

“Traditional” Mediterranean Diet Under Attack

This woman is kind of a big shot, so she can not just say what ever she wants. Here I have copied the best part; here is her Blog Post.

A Way Out

But there is a way out, Greece has three important advantages when it comes to nutrition:

1. A traditional diet that is the gold standard of diets. The traditional Greek diet is considered the purest form and the prototype of the Mediterranean diet. We do not need to reinvent the wheel, we have excellent published nutrition guidelines based on the diets of our parents and grandparents. We just need to make the diet relevant and accessible again.

2. Access to fresh food. Greece does not have food desserts. Every neighborhood/suburb poor or affluent, has a farmers market at least twice a week. This is key in raising awareness on how a traditional Greek diet is healthy and affordable.

3. Greek Filotimo and Filoxenia. Even in difficult times Greeks are helping those in need even though they are having their own financial difficulties. In Greek culture offering to another is considered an obligation, it is a reflection of who you are. According to a recent survey from the Dianeosis, an estimated 58% of Greeks have provided assistance to those in need through the form of food, clothing, money or volunteer work. That is quite high considering that Greeks are going through their own crisis.

More On The Mediterranean Diet, This Time As It Relates to Mood

What’s not to like. Here is a Blog Post by one of my favorite Greek writers on a Study that shows just one more reason to eat like the Greeks. I recommend her Blog whole-heartedly if you want to learn how to cook like the Greeks (for the purposes of health – Note: she adheres precisely to the recommendations of the BlueZone folks; I don’t think that that is an accident).
