Learn All About the #1 Ranked Diet - The Mediterranean Diet

This week's topic is one of my favorites and apparently it is one for many others too, as the Mediterranean Diet has been ranked the number one diet for six years in a row.

I personally recommend this diet to my patients to adapt into their eating habits. I don't like to look at this as a diet, but as a lifestyle change. The Mediterranean diet / lifestyle has been linked to maintaining a healthy weight, preventing dementia, improving heart health, lowering cholesterol, helping chronic kidney disease, telomere length and much more.

And one of the best parts is you don't have to give up bread and pasta. But there is a whole lot more to this and today I am going to go over 10 things you may not know about this wonderful diet / lifestyle.

Working as a kidney doctor, I found that my patients were often unaware of just how important diet and lifestyle were and how often they felt unsupported by generic advice to “eat healthy”. The home cook in me hated hearing this, so I set out to find a better way.

I began to combine my medical training and love of food, making videos of simple recipes that were based on science and packed with flavor. Instead of just saying “eat healthy” to my patients, I could give them the resources they needed to make a real difference in their health.

Kidney doctor, passionate home cook, and YouTube sensation Dr Blake Shusterman empowers people to proactively manage their health by stepping into the kitchen. The author of several cookbooks with over 100,000 YouTube subscribers, The Cooking Doc® believes anyone, at any age can transform their health with small changes that make a big difference. Based on science and packed with flavor, Dr. Blake’s simple recipes have inspired home cooks everywhere to change their diet, retrain their taste buds, and transform their health.
