    If the Mediterranean Diet study results discussed in this video were compared to the diets followed by the patients in the clinical trials conducted by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn or the clinical trials conducted by Dr. Dean Ornish, over the same periods of time, the Med. Diet results would be blown out of the water.   A four year study of 177 consecutive patients published by Dr. Esselstyn in The Journal of Family Practice in 2014 showed exactly 1 vascular event, or six tenths of a percent failure rate over the four year period.  His patients were consuming a totally whole foods, plant-based diet, with no olive or other oils.   The participants on the two versions of the Mediterranean Diet in the above study had 175 vascular events, or a 3.5% failure rate in the 4.8 year study.  That’s almost six times worse than Dr. Esselstyn’s diet.  Dr. Ornish has had similar results, also published in peer-reviewed medical journals.

    I would suggest everyone to go on a Mediterranean diet if it reduces the chances of you having heart disease, a stroke, or heart attack by thirty percent. People should start this type of diet more often.

    What do you think of lost lots of weight with Okibetonic Secrets? I see many people keep on speaking about Okibetonic Secrets.

    Nordic diet is good too follow your indigenous roots diets. They are all unique. Native American diet will not be compatible with the Japanese diet. USA is unique culture and diverse especially people of European descent.

    I have heard how a Mediterranean diet is supposed to be so good for you. I had no idea what a Mediterranean diet even was and what benefits is has. This video explained that people who are on a Mediterranean diet mostly eat fish, red wine, fruit, nuts, natural oils like olive oil, and vegetables. People on this diet also do not eat any unhealthy fats. And limit the red meats to at once a month. Being on this diet significantly decreases the chance of having a heart attack, stroke, and heart disease. This diet is extremely healthy for your heart. I am always looking for different and healthy, new foods to incorporate in my diet. This video makes me want to give a Mediterranean diet a try. I know that this all can’t happen at once because it will be hard for me to completely cut out other foods that do not go along with this diet. Over time, hopefully I will be able to do this and encourage my family to do this diet as well because my dad and his side of the family are already at a high risk for heart problems.

    Who’s going to go out and buy Salmon……..? Is this a true snapshot of American culture? 😳🇦🇺

  12. Tamela Wade on October 10, 2021 at 9:16 am

    As specialist, I believe Fenoboci Diet Plan is great way to lost crazy amounts of weight. Why not give it a chance? maybe it’s going to work for you too.

  13. Charles Sidwell on October 10, 2021 at 9:17 am

    Up to 30% less likely to develop heart disease, etc, doesn’t mean that you will. A plant-based diet without added oils, such as olive oil, has been shown to blow 30% out of the water.

  14. HolisticBrit Ellis on October 10, 2021 at 9:18 am

    I love her name! Gina Colada! Sounds like pina colada! Good video, Mediterranean diet is so worth the time consuming cooking.

  15. Qucih Nuzef on October 10, 2021 at 9:18 am

    My doctor recommended this system [Go here=== https://t.co/dBnv3xaIdy  ] to me. I was looking to lose a significant amount of weight, and needed a plan. This diet book has done miracles for me and my husband! We follow the plan and both lost over 20 pounds in the first month. This is a well written book that will give you the tools you need to start eating healthier and regain control of your metabolism. I can’t say enough good things about this book and the diet. This was a life changer for us!

    What is Okibetonic Secrets and how does it work? I hear a lot of people burn their fat with this popular weight loss method.

  17. Andrea Aurelio on October 10, 2021 at 9:21 am

    One more finding which proves that the Mediterranean people and the ancient Greeks knew what they were doing! We strongly support the Mediterranean Diet for all! Olive oil and halloumi cheese are good for you!

  18. Gracelyn Davenport on October 10, 2021 at 9:21 am

    Has anyone tried Okibetonic Secrets? (just google it) I have heard several amazing things about this popular lose weight secrets.

  19. Panteleimon Mavrinskii on October 10, 2021 at 9:22 am

    What exactly is Custokebon Secrets? How does this thing really work? I see a lot of people keep on talking about this popular fat burn method.

  20. Kamari Kerr on October 10, 2021 at 9:22 am

    Yes, I too am guilty of jumping through diet plan to others as well, I think that I need to have tested every single fat loss method that was available, however eventually not one of them made it easier for me to shed and keep the weight off. I ended up trying for the very last time with the Okibetonic Secrets simply because my cooworker who told me amazing things about it and so far to date I have effectively lost 16 lbs within 3 weeks!

    Guys, losing weight does not need to be difficult (I used to feel it did). I’ll give you some advice right now. Look for a diet plan called Custokebon Secrets. Seriously, that course has changed my life. I probably should not even be mentioning it cause I do not want a bunch of other folks out there running the same "game" but whatever, I’m in a good mood today so I will share the wealth haha.

  23. Jonnie Waters on October 10, 2021 at 9:25 am

    It still surprise me, how some people don’t know about Okibetonic Secrets, even though many people get good results because of it. Thanks to my friend who told me about Okibetonic Secrets, I’ve lost crazy amounts of weight with it without starving myself.

  24. chris Jackson on October 10, 2021 at 9:26 am

    So according to her olive oil is filling at 120 calories per table spoon to fill stomach to the same capacity as a meal (1.0-1.5 litres) you would need 75-100 tablespoons of oil at 8000-12000 calories. Definitely wouldn’t gain any weight world you.

  25. Oscar Hunter on October 10, 2021 at 9:27 am

    Eat all the Olive oil you want

  26. Uncle Tom and Friends on October 10, 2021 at 9:28 am

    I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis yesterday and my Neurologist recommended the Mediterranean diet.

  27. Warren Lauzon on October 10, 2021 at 9:33 am

    A lot of those studies were done decades ago, and diets have changed. Greece is now 5th in the world for obesity – and over half the calories come from olive oil.

    Mediterranean diet isn’t eat loads of pasta and bread, and loads of olive oil, wine etc. My grandma is Italian but doesn’t follow a strictly Mediterranean diet anymore, she has lived in the UK which has rubbed off on her sadly. She is still alive and mostly health (in her 90s) but she has been struggling with high cholesterol for years and her sister had high cholesterol and developed vascular dementia (she wasn’t taking her statins like my grandma, also lived in the UK). If you do Mediterranean remember a plate is smaller, eat lots of oily fish without mercury (ie non predatory fish mostly), 1/2 of your plate should be vegetables, 1/4 should be whole grains and 1/4 lean meat or healthy fish. Nuts, less sugar, basically whole unrefined foods is the way to go and lots of veggies and fruit.

    I’m going to switch to the Mediterranean and it’s funny because I’m part Spanish and a huge chunk "Southern European" xD

  41. Brittny King on October 10, 2021 at 9:50 am

    I feel that the Mediterranean diet is just like any other diet. It involves healthy foods such as nuts, fish, and vegetables and simply focuses on those food groups. I wouldn’t think it to be healthier than most health diets that have you consuming healthy food. Does olive oil really play a part in the healthy factor of this diet though? or is it just accompanied with the types of dishes? It was said that this diet can reduce health problems such as heart disease, but any diet that is cutting out food such as fast food, processed foods, and junk food would do the same, right?

  42. liz muthoni on October 10, 2021 at 9:50 am

    Don’t forget the Mediterranean culture.. Community, walking, eating together.. It’s not just about the food.

  43. SpacedTime on October 10, 2021 at 9:51 am

    what did she mean at the end in answer to his question of ‘what should I change?’ she said "the package"?

  44. Charlie Vaughan on October 10, 2021 at 9:54 am

    Nice video. Has anyone seen this pdf file called Burwan Super Fast Diet Plan? I’ve checked out the landing page but don’t know if it’s worth the money. Perhaps someone who has been brave 🙂 enough to buy it please share their views? Thank you

  46. Brooke Horton on October 10, 2021 at 9:56 am

    What are some ways to lost tons of weight? I read loads of good reviews on the net about how exactly Okibetonic Secrets can help you lost lots of weight. Has anybody tried using this popular weight loss secrets?

  47. Olivia on October 10, 2021 at 9:56 am

    I would be interested to see the descent of the test subjects who were successful in this diet. I’m sure that this diet is healthy and good for people, but it would be the best diet for the people of Mediterranean descent. Thanks to evolution, one’s body is best designed to digest what his ancestors ate. There is an example of lactose tolerance, where one is more likely to be tolerant of lactose if his ancestors were cow farmers. His ancestors would have drank the cow’s milk, and over time, their body and their children’s bodies would have adapted to digest lactose. Then this trait is passed on for generations to come. So if one is of Mediterranean descent, his ancestors would have lived off this diet for many generations, making them more apt to be successful in digesting this diet.

    Now if the test subjects were of other descents and were still equally as successful, this makes me wonder if the first human city of Mesopotamia would have a direct influence on us today. Mesopotamia was a huge place where many people lived longer than they had before due to the agriculture and domestication of animals, and it was in the Mediterranean area. I would not be surprised if the people here were the one’s who started the so called Mediterranean diet. This may be a stretch, but maybe many people are more evolutionarily adept to this Mediterranean diet because of a very distant ancestor from Mesopotamia.

  48. Capra Lucana on October 10, 2021 at 9:56 am

    Please everyone STOP with all of the olive oil. Yes it’s good and tasty, but it is concentrated fat, please limit and eat in moderation. Reduce animal protein and fat, replace with starchy carbs, legumes, veggies and some fruit. Rice, corn, beans, potatoes, etc. The true Mediterranean diet is of the poor people. They had no money for meat, pounds of cheese, gallons of EVOO. They ate what they grew and centered their diet on what gave them energy and filled them up…………STARCH!!!!!! Olive oil and cheese where enjoyed in moderation as a flavor enhancer/condiment, because they were expensive to acquire or produce. Wine on the other hand was consumed on a regular basis because it was mostly water and grape juice. Eat like a peasant and live like a king.

  49. Mateusz Sid on October 10, 2021 at 9:57 am

    Guys. lost a ton of weight does not need to be hard (I used to feel it did). I’ll give you some tips right now. Look for a popular diet plan program called Custokebon Secrets (just search it on google). Thanks to it I’ve lost lots of weight. I probably should not even be talking about it cause I don’t want a lot of other guys out there running the same game but whatever. I’m just simply in a great mood right now so I will share the wealth lol.

  50. Severin Lemekhov on October 10, 2021 at 9:59 am
