Going for a healthy diet is the best decision you can take, the new modified Mediterranean diet has proved to have longevity benefits, why not giving it a try?
The Mediterranean diet includes traditional healthy habits of people that live in the Mediterranean Sea –France, Greece, Italy and Spain. Though it may vary from region to region, it shares several similarities: it is high in vegetables, fruits, legumes, beans, nuts, cereals, grains, fish and unsaturated fats such as olive oil, and a low intake of meat and dairy products.
Research has shown that following a Mediterranean diet will extend your lifespan. A modified Mediterranean diet is similar to what we stated, but instead of including unsaturated fats, you should substitute them for monosaturated fats.
Monounsaturated fats provide essential fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins. Examples of such are: avocados, olives, olive oil, rapeseed oil, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, peanuts, pistachios among others.
If you follow the modified Mediterranean diet and exercise regularly, you are bound to boost longevity.
