Not only do people live longer in the Mediterranean but they also get to enjoy delicious food without resorting to unhealthy shakes or calorie restricted diets. So how do they do it?

Firstly it is time to cut out the stodge! The Mediterranean diet relies on plant foods and healthy fats rather than saturated fats and harmful trans fats often found in pre-prepared foods.

To get the most from a Mediterranean diet, small lifestyle changes are required. This means eating fresh and using healthy ingredients. Thankfully the fantastic thing about this diet is meals can be embarrassingly simple to cook while still leaving you full after every meal.

Here is our top tip to slimming down the Mediterranean way..

Choose a Mediterranean diet plan and stick to it!

The secret to slimming successfully is to remove the barriers which stop you from loosing weight. For many people the one thing stoping them from leading a healthier lifestyle is time.

Many of us have hectic schedules and are constantly looking for quick fixes when it comes to mealtimes, unfortunately these quick fixes are rarely healthy.

The solution is to find meal recipes and plans which are not only easy to make but also stick to the Mediterranean principles of vegetables and fresh ingredients.

Thankfully our supermarkets can help. Did you know Tesco supermarket have specially designed meals for a Mediterranean diet? I didn’t until I was pointed to this website which is from Tesco and offers ready made meal plans specifically designed for mediterranean diets.

The Tesco dieting service removes the biggest hurdle to dieting by delivering the right ingredients to your door along with all the instructions and mediterranean diet plans you need to enjoy your figure and food again.

Ultimately like any diet it is up to you to get the results you want, however we think this diet offers a sensible balance which can give healthy results. Plus you get to enjoy delicious food.

We would love to hear what your favourite foods are from the mediterranean!
