Is a Diet Low in Meat and High in Fruits and Vegetables the Key to Your Weight Goals?

Need to lose some weight? The Mediterranean diet focuses on eating less meat, more fresh fruits and veggies, and even encourages a daily glass of red wine. Retired Miami police officer Roberto Baez followed his doctors orders to lose weight after being diagnosed with metabolic syndrome.

You must have three of the five components to have it: low HDL or good cholesterol, high blood sugar, high triglycerides, high blood pressure, waist size of at least 35 inches for women, 40 for men.

Cardiologist Dr. Theodore Feldman says “the main focus of treatment of the metabolic syndrome is weight loss and exercise.”

This new analysis of 50 studies finds the Mediterranean diet reduced the risk of this common syndrome and patients improved like Roberto who is no longer pre-diabetic.
