MEDITERRANEAN, FOOD — As the new year begins, it’s no surprise that millions of people will probably be making resolutions to improve their health. For those looking for a better diet, we have some good news! For the fourth year in a row, the Mediterranean diet was named the “Best Diet” by U.S. News & World Report.
Wow. “Best diet” four years in a row? Hey Mediterranean diet, let someone else have a shot at the crown!
The Mediterranean diet has increased in popularity over the past few years for its less restrictive, yet healthy, approach to eating. The diet consists mainly of all natural meals full of fruits, vegetables, beans, lentils, fish, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and olive oil. While it might be a little bit more pricey than other diets, scientists have been impressed with its ability to help combat heart disease, diabetes, and other illnesses stemming from consumption of processed foods, according to CNN.
That all sounds well and good, but again, isn’t it time for another diet to get a chance at being Number 1? It’s only fair that we give people who might not be into Mediterranean styles of cuisine something that might also be healthy for them. For that, look no further than the Dump Diet.
The Dump Diet, created by television infomercial icon Cathy Mitchell, offers low-calorie, easy to make meals that any health conscious person can enjoy.
Dump Dieters can substitute ingredients for lower carb options in classic dishes like lasagna, tacos, and even “sinful” strawberry cakes. In the words of Cathy Mitchell, all you have to do is “just dump, bake, and lose weight!” She claims to have lost 25 pounds using this diet, and if that’s the case, then sign us up!
Whether you decide to go on the Mediterranean diet or Cathy Mitchell’s Dump Diet, we hope that you reach your goals of living a healthier lifestyle in a way that works best for you!
