The whole Mediterranean diet is based on the scientific observation that the populations among Crete, Greece and southern Italy have the lowest rates of chronic disease, as well as one of the longest life expectancies. The Mediterranean diet may help you lose weight, offer cancer prevention, diabetes management, and most importantly brain & cardiovascular health.
It is very similar to every other "healthy" diet, since most other ones draw their inspiration from this diet. You will eat lots of vegetables, whole-grains, legumes and nuts, fruits, fish, some poultry & low-fat dairy, tons of olive oil & herbs/spices, a few weekly eggs, and some wine (if that's your thing). On the other hand, you will restrict red meat, saturated fats, sweets, and processed foods.
The Mediterranean diet is so good for you health because you are getting ample amounts of healthy fats (olive oil, fish, nuts), vitamins, antioxidants & fiber (fruits, veggies, herbs/spices, whole grains and legumes). Conversely you are removing foods that have been scientifically studied to increase our risk of disease like saturated fat and processed sugar. Even if you ignore the observational aspect of the Mediterranean populations' longevity, the diet is basically what medical doctors and nutritionist will recommended to you because it is nutritionally solid and does not require crazy restrictions or abnormal eating habits.

Ratings and Reviews
Good app! Doesn’t overload you with “weedy,” unhelpful information. It contains a lot of good info, but sticks to the key points: the benefits of the diet, long lists of foods you should and shouldn’t eat, great tips, and supportive messages. Very pleased!
Waste of time
This app contains only the same information that would show up on the first page of a google search result. Waste of time since I’ve already googled what the diet is. I was hoping for something that I could plan or track with.
What’s the point?
I thought this was a diet app that would help guide me through a plan. Instead it’s nothing more than an information guide about the Mediterranean diet and links to recipes. Good information but not worth downloading an app that can burn your battery power.
