There are all kinds of diets for weight loss, such as Atkins, The Zone, Vegetarian, Weight Watchers, South Beach and Mediterranean Diet, but i say that there is no good diet, only sensible eating. However, Mediterranean Diet is the one that fits the description of “sensible eating” the most .
Mediterranean Diet has good varieties of protein from different sources: meat, nuts and fish. Fish has omega-3, its big +, because it considered to be a “good fat”
Mediterranean Diet has legumes and beans: source of protein and fibers.
Mediterranean Diet has complex carbohydrates (i like it.)
Mediterranean Diet has a lot of vegetables.
Mediterranean Diet has olive oil, again big plus!
Mediterranean Diet has red wine! and if you can limit your consumption to 2 oz, it could be very beneficial as a source of anti-oxidants.
