Beware Mediterranean Madness

DSCN9305No one loves the Mediterranean more than me—the pic is of me on honeymoon there last summer! But don’t believe all the hype you’re reading about the new study around the Mediterranean Diet. I’ve been lucky enough to work with several doctors who inform my approach and program on healthy eating. Please check out this note from Dr. Ornish in the Huffington Post pointing to the flaws in the study (thanks Jeff Novick for sharing!). In a nutshell, avoid any olive oil or refined oils in your diet, you can get plenty of natural fats in unrefined plant-based dishes and with a lot more nutrients.
