The Mediterranean diet is one of the most popular eating patterns and its popularity continues to rise alongside the increasing need for healthier eating patterns and lifestyles. The diet is often characterized by a relatively high consumption of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts/seeds and olive oil, and lower in sweets, sodium and red meat. Interestingly, many Mediterranean countries eat about the same amount or more red meat as the United States, but those countries pair red meat with more fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains and healthy oils.
Recent research shows that a Mediterranean-style eating pattern that includes lean, unprocessed red meat, in addition to poultry and fish, can improve cardiometabolic risk factors. This webinar focuses on the latest evidence demonstrating how a Mediterranean-style eating pattern that includes a variety of dietary proteins, like lean beef, can support heart health and focuses on how healthcare professionals, like you, can help Americans make changes to incorporate the primary tenets of this eating pattern into their daily routines.
