Sometimes it's not how much we eat, but what we eat that matters most. That's why Dr. Diana Bitner and many others follow the Mediterranean lifestyle, making them feel great from the inside, out!
A Mediterranean style diet has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects on the body and people who eat this kind of diet, live longer with less disease.
We caught up with Dr. Bitner, along with a dietitian from Spectrum Health, to see what's involved in the Mediterranean diet.
All of the ingredients used in this diet can be found at any farmer's market, and used in a variety of tasty dishes.
To learn more about the Mediterranean diet, Spectrum Health will be teaching a class, "Eating The Mediterranean Way" on September 26 and 28.
