This is a lovely article that explains in short, the essential characteristics of the MD:
- Very little processed food
- Good fats, e.g. olive oil, nuts and fish
- Little red meat
- Red wine (in moderation!)
- Fresh produce, e.g. fruit and vegetables (normally bought in their unpackaged form)
- Exercising between meals
- Mind the calories- even if they are good, they can still make you put on weight.
