MEDITERRANEAN DIET MAY PREVENT DIABETES




Following a Mediterranean diet may help prevent diabetes in people who are at risk for heart disease, even if they do not also lose weight or increase exercise, a new study from Spain suggests. In the study, people at risk for heart disease who followed a Mediterranean diet — which consisted mostly of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish and fats from either extra-virgin olive oil or nuts — were about 30 percent less likely to develop type 2 diabetes over a four-year period than people who were advised to follow a low-fat diet.
