Can the Mediterranean diet boost mental as well as physical health? A new study would suggest so.
It’s a familiar story. You are confronted with a range of diets when you seek information on how to improve your health by changing your eating habits. Some have scientific backing, others don’t. Some are based on the sensible consumption of wholefoods, others just concentrate on a fad “new” ingredient. Many of these are touted as the “next big thing” in wellness and weight loss, though most are eventually discredited as scientific studies reveal how lacking they really are. It’s more than annoying, as the hype that surrounds the false, money-spinning diets obscures the effectiveness of those that do work.
