Olives, olive oil, and vinegar: classic Mediterranean foods

Researchers at RMIT University in Australia, are seeking volunteer research participants to be involved in a study about the management of type 2 diabetes through an alternative dietary plan based on the Mediterranean diet.

Through the clinical trial scientists hope to learn whether a Mediterranean dietary pattern with or without intermittent fasting may better control diabetes, as compared with a conventional diet based on the current recommendations for patients with type 2 diabetes.

Click for brief details. I saw nothing that restricts participation to Australia residents. “Attend online appointments (via Zoom, phone or FaceTime) with the research nutritionist (PhD student) at the start of the study and again at 6 weeks, 12 weeks and 24 weeks.” This type of research is usually very safe and approved by university institutional review boards.
