Live Mediterranean
Posted 2/27/2013 9:24:00 AM

Want to live healthier? Once again, evidence points to the Mediterranean diet as a way to reduce your risk of heart attack, stroke , or dying from heart disease - by 30 percent.

The newest study, posted by the New England Journal of Medicine this week, reaffirms in a big way what previous studies have shown: that eating a diet high in olive oil, nuts, beans, fish, fruits and vegetables, with a daily glass of wine, is not just good for your - but good enough to stick to, unlike so many other diets that are too restrictive to follow for the long-term.

Here's the original study report from the NEJM.

And here's more about how to incorporate this way of eating into your lifestyle.

Plus, if you need some extra motivation to modify your eating habits, check out the 'Rollin' Wild' video on our Facebook Page, LiteMiami - an adorable imagining of what it would be like if animals ate fast food.
