Making the Mediterranean Diet Work for You

Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at 12:00 pm EST

May is Mediterranean Diet Month, and a perfect time to brush up on the basics of this wildly popular eating style. The Mediterranean diet emphasizes wholesome fruits, vegetables, legumes and mono- & polyunsaturated fat, while also incorporating lifestyle modifications and a unique approach to eating that is worth highlighting. This webinar will shine a light on a bit of the research supporting the diet’s impact on health and offers practical ways to bring the Mediterranean diet to your own table.

During this webinar, we will:

  • Review the significant features of the Mediterranean diet
  • Discuss recent science that supports the benefits of this way of living
  • Share simple tips for incorporating Mediterranean eating strategies into one’s own diet
  • Highlight how to use Guiding Stars to facilitate following the Mediterranean diet
