Oldways Revamps Mediterranean Diet After Conference

April 13, 2009: 09:01 AM EST
Not-for-profit educational group Oldways has launched a modified Mediterranean Diet Pyramid, based on changes made at an international meeting of nutritionists last November. The new pyramid places all plant foods into a single category, adding herbs and spices for the first time. This group now includes fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, seeds, nuts, olive oil, herbs and spices. The pyramid also recommends eating fish at least twice a week. A Mediterranean diet is based on using olive oil as the major source of dietary fat, low to moderate consumption of fish, poultry, cheese and yogurt, moderate wine consumption, and eating foods from the plant group at every meal.
