Other Health Benefits

The Mediterranean diet has also been found to lower one’s risk of cancer, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s; increase brain health; and help control one’s diabetes and blood sugar levels. It can also help you lose weight. But remember, you still have to watch your calorie intake with this diet and work out in order for this to reap its full weight-loss benefits.
