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.

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!
It is a solid app. Lots of good info
This is NOT a good app and certainly not one worth paying for. The Mediterranean diet is supposed to limit poultry and red meat, yet the recipe menus contain these daily. Plus, you can’t customize for dietary restrictions. As a pescatarian, I was hoping this would simplify my meal planning, but the recipes are very neat intensive, which doesn’t seem aligned with the healthy Mediterranean diet.
