are not required to make any changes that are not practical.

Mediterranean diet involves eating whole food. It involves eating a lot of fresh fruits,
vegetables, nuts, fish and olive oil. Also, you are allowed to drink a glass of red wine
along with your meals to reap the health benefits that come from the wine. All the
food that you eat as a part of the diet is low on saturated fats, but high on Omega 3
fatty acid and monounsaturated fats.

Fish plays a big role in the diet. People on this diet have to eat a lot of fish, which are
replete with Omega 3 fatty acid. This means that they are not only protecting the
health of their heart, the people are also ensuring that they do not suffer from high
blood pressure.

Olive oil is primarily used for cooking all the food. It is also used for making tomato
sauces, as a salad dressing and also as a dip for whole-grain bread. The oil contains
flavonoids, which are beneficial for lowering blood pressure and reducing the bad
cholesterol in the blood.

If you opt for Mediterranean diet, you will be weaning yourself away from processed
foods and junk food which are known to elevate blood pressure, increase cholesterol
levels and also increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
