‘What ought to I eat?!’ The Mediterranean food regimen version. [Infographic]

“What should I eat on the Mediterranean Diet ?!”

Keep that handy Mediterranean Diet Food List Be your guide.

You may find that our list is a little different from the one you find elsewhere.

The reason: It is not a two-column food list “Eat / Don’t Eat” or “Good / Bad”.

Instead, we’ve broken everything down into a continuum – from “eat more” to “eat something” to “eat less”.

This way no eating is forbidden. And you can easily see which foods to highlight – higher quality, more nutritious options – and which foods should be eaten less frequently (but not given up entirely).

As a cool side effect, if you focus more on the “Eat more” category, you will likely find that you naturally eat less in the other categories. And then the health benefits kick in.

Think of this grocery list as a tool regardless of your starting point. One that will help you progress over time instead of striving for perfection all at once.

Our advice: The aim is to meet Mediterranean eating habits “Just a little better” than you do now, and keep improving over time.

This is how permanent change happens.
