BENEFITS OF MEDITERRANEAN DIET
With the expanding recognition that diet offers
a beneficial role in health and prevention of disease issues
like osteoporosis, bone loss, etc., guidelines are being discussed.
A new paper with suggestions for guidelines recommended
a mediterranean-type diet with daily consumption of 2 to 3 dairy products to deliver
calcium and protein sufficient enough to maintain
normal calcium-phosphorous balance and bone metabolism all of which are related
to a reduced risk of fracture. (1) In other papers,
the Mediterranean diet has been said to reduce hip fracture
risk. Another new paper states that there is evidence
that a modified or alternative Mediterranean diet like the DASH (“Dietary
Approaches to Stop Hypertension”) diet may also reduce hip
fracture risk as well as risk of lumbar spine
osteoporosis in women. (2) A study just published this
past month pointed out that older adults who adhered
the Meditterranean Diet closely had reduced chances
of developing cognitive decline. (3) Better BMD, lower
osteoporosis odds, reduced risk of
cognitive decline and hip fracture may be motivating to try and follow the Mediterranean diet, yes? Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. finds these new
studies interesting enough to share with our
Auburn chiropractic patients and their families.
WHAT DO I EAT ON THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET?
What foods are in the mediterranean diet? Fruits,
vegetables, whole grains, legumes, healthy fats (olive oil, nuts, seeds), yogurt,
seafood/fish, a little red wine, and lots of water, un-sugared sparkling water,
juices. It suggests staying away from sugars,
refined grains, ultra-processed foods, etc. (4) These are all possible if not simple!
