Such an informative blog. Thanks for sharing this with us.
Thank you for this post and for this health blog because it helps me with my eating plan, especially after celebrating New Year (like what is mentioned above) and any other occasions that happened or will happen. We know that when we celebrate any occasions, we expect a bunch of foods that are served by our family and we can do nothing but to eat and eat, especially if those foods are really taste good and also our favorite. This will helps me and all of the people who have unbalanced diet that will makes us responsible of what we eat or what should we eat.
Thank you so much for the post. Instead of going on a strict regime, these 3 tips are easier to handle. Also, on the long-term, it seems more realistic to keep in mind these 3 tips. I am working irregular hours, do you have any extra tips for me to keep me stay on this healthy diet? Best regards, Judy
If the “Mediterranean-style eating plan” does not include lots of regular (not whole-grain) pasta it definitely isn’t Mediterranean. I don’t think many Italians eat whole-grain pasta; they definitely didn’t in the 60’s when the initial research supporting the Mediterranean Diet was done. If regular pasta was so healthy in the 60’s why do we have to eat whole-grain pasta now? Am I missing something?
