■ Many people don't like using the word diet, when referring to their eating habits, because they feel that it is embarrasing to be on a diet. Whether underweight, overweight, sick or fit, diet, by its Greek definition means the food eaten by an animal to maintain its state of good health. But the question is, what do you like? And you will find the answer here in .

Do you enjoy great-tasting food? Of course you do. Anything else would be unnatural. A positive attitude towards food is of the utmost importance, even if you are overweight or have diabetes, and this positive relationship with food is characteristic of the way people around the Mediterranean have traditionally eaten. The traditional Mediterranean diet, especially the Greek diet (typically high in olive oil, fish, vegetables, beans, lentils and fruit, and low in potatoes, red meat and dairy foods), has been known for the past 40 years to be particularly healthy .

Our bodies are literally made of the food we eat, and we need the correct type of food and in adequate quantities in order to be healthy. This website will teach you to make the right choices from the many types of food available. By making better choices, you will reach a hormonal balance and enjoy better health. Remember, your future health depends on the choices you make today.
