The Olive - Mediterranean Diet

Diet pyramids may be used to express the proportion of meat, dairy Products, fruits, vegetables and staple carbohydrate foods in a given diet. The Mediterranean diet pyramid is based upon the “traditional” Mediterranean diet, where consumption of olives and olive oil, play an important dietary role. Scientific research indicates that consumption of the Mediterranean diet is associated with a low prevalence of nutritionally linked chronic diseases and high life expectancy.

The Mediterranean diet is compatible with excellent health and is a tested, proven, cultural model for healthy eating.

In contrast, the US Department of Agriculture food pyramid was constructed against a poor national diet known to contribute to high rates of heart disease, cancer and other nutritionally linked chronic diseases.
