Men over 50 are a demographic that tends to be forgotten when it comes to health and wellness, but there has been a significant increase in understanding how our nutritional needs change as we age. The Mediterranean Diet is a catch-all term for the diet of nations along the Mediterranean sea. It emphasises wholegrains, includes plenty of fruits and vegetables, has room for poultry and lots of oily fish, and allows a moderate intake of red wine if that's your thing. While this diet is no miracle pill that will help you lose weight, you do stand to gain a lot of health benefits from following it! The Mediterranean Diet is easy to follow and can help to improve your general health and welbeing. This book covers a general introduction to the diet, including advice regarding intermittent fasting and sample recipes for your personal use. you will also find some general advice on different types of exercise that you may not want to implement in your daily life. Most of what you will find between these pages comes from a mix of personal experience following the diet and research into its benefits. Before we get into it, there are a couple of general 'rules' to follow when preparing your meals. Around half of your plate should consist of non-starchy vegetables, a quarter should be healthy proteins, and the remaining quarter should be wholegrains. The main thing is you get it all in your diet!

Adults living in certain olive-growing areas of the Mediterranean Basin display high life expectancies and rates of chronic disease that are among the lowest in the world. These benefits are achieved despite socioeconomic indicators that are often much lower than those of more industrial nations in North America and Europe. Attention has focused on diet as the cardinal factor since food consumption patterns are closely tied to the incidence and severity of chronic debilitating diseases. The Mediterranean Diet: Constituents and Health Promotion explores in detail the relationship among the Mediterranean Diet, nutritional status, and disease and evaluates the nutritional practices that minimize or slow the incidence and progress of major diseases, especially heart disease and cancer. During the past ten years the Mediterranean Diet has been the subject of constant attention, debate, and controversy. It is the subject of ongoing studies as a cultural model for dietary improvement and health promotion in the United States and Europe. Divided into three sections, the book provides this information: Background: Learn about the history of the Mediterranean Diet and food patterns from the ancient Greeks through the present. This section also discusses the diet's classical antecedents and definition, paying particular attention to the characteristics, dietary patterns, and epidemiological aspects. Dietary Constituents: Discover the specific food components and commodities that constitute the Mediterranean Diet such as fats and oils; fruits, vegetables, legumes, and grains; milk and dairy products; meat and meat products; and alcoholic beverages. Health Promotion and Disease Prevention: Examine how the Mediterranean Diet promotes good health with regard to diabetes and obesity, coronary heart disease, cancer, and longevity. Also included are chapters offering dietary recommendations based on the current understanding of the diet, suggested future research and applications, and a useful summary chapter. The Mediterranean Diet: Constituents and Health Promotion provides a clear overview of this timely and controversial subject.

This book illustrates the role of Mediterranean diet in connection with well-being and particularly its impact on health and elderly care, as well as on the mechanisms of aging. Aging is a natural process of human life. The knowledge that a healthy dietary regimen like the Mediterranean diet can effectively prevent or delay many diseases typically affecting aging people may help to better manage the aging process. From this point of view, knowledge of the numerous benefits of the Mediterranean-style diet may effectively promote better management of the burden of elderly care. As early as the 1950s, Ancel Keys pointed out the effectiveness of the Mediterranean diet in helping to control, and possibly avoid, myocardial infarction and/or cholesterol metabolism. Quite soon after the first studies were published, it became clear that the Mediterranean diet was beneficial not only in connection with cardiovascular disease but also many other diseases, from diabetes to hypertension, from cancer and thrombosis to neurodegenerative diseases, including dementia. Examining those benefits in detail, this book offers a valuable educational tool for young professionals and caregivers, as well as for students and trainees in Geriatrics and Nutrition.
The European men were much healthier than the American men, even though their diets were quite limited, according to U.S. nutrition standards. This led Keys to his famous Seven Countries Study, which showed that a plant-based diet rich ...
