How many of you'll are following the Mediterranean diet? Well, then you must know that in the Mediterranean diet, you are supposed to limit dairy. However, what must you do if you're a cheese lover? Well, now there's a solution!
A newer version of the Mediterranean diet is bringing dairy back in a big way. And the health benefits are just as good. Called the MedDairy diet, a new study from the University of South Australia found that a dairy-enhanced Mediterranean diet is great for your health. It helps to improve blood pressure, heart rate, cholesterol and even your mood and cognitive functioning! In fact, it helps improve all this and more better than a low-fat diet. And while there haven’t been studies comparing a dairy-enhanced Mediterranean diet and a traditional Mediterranean diet yet, researchers claim that the latter is more beneficial.
So, how much dairy can you really get away with in your MedDairy diet? You can eat a serving of dairy with every meal if you want. The original Mediterranean diet falls short when it comes to calcium and the MedDairy diet doesn't! Well, all you cheese lovers, will you all be ditching the original Mediterranean diet and start following the MedDairy one instead?
