Scientists Update Healthful Mediterranean Diet

Oldways Releases Revised Mediterranean Diet Pyramid

“Last November, Oldways convened a high-level international meeting of leading nutrition scientists to review the very large number of recent studies expanding support for the healthful Mediterranean Diet.

Based on this new scientific evidence, Oldways revised the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid, the colorful graphic that displays the high-level science underlying importance to good health.

The new Mediterranean Diet PyramidWhat’s New in the Updated Healthful Mediterranean Diet and Mediterranean Diet Pyramid:

(1) Because foods from the plant kingdom are at the core of the Mediterranean Diet, the scientists decided to combine all plant foods into a single group. This change conveys the importance of eating a food or foods from this plant-based group – fruits, vegetables, grains (mostly whole), beans, seeds, nuts, olive oil, herbs and spices (a new addition to this Pyramid too) – at every meal to achieve maximum health benefits.

(2) Another key change is the recommendation to eat fish at least twice a week.

(3) The illustration itself is a change. It celebrates the delicious, varied foods of the Mediterranean region, and is designed to get consumers interested and excited about the delicious and healthy foods of the Mediterranean Diet.

These are just a few of the changes and we invite you to visit the Oldways website for more details. We also welcome you to visit the Mediterranean Foods Alliance for Mediterranean recipes, cooking tips, the latest health information and more.”
