Parade.com has an article touting the health benefits of a low-carb high-fat Mediterranean diet. Can you believe they didn’t even mention my books?!
In fairness to my readers, I must mention that I scanned the referenced AJCN article and didn’t see the word “Mediterranean” in it.
“If you’re looking to improve your heart health, you may want to try eating a low-carb, high-fat Mediterranean diet. Why? Because a new study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that eating a low-carb (no more than 20% of daily calories from carbs), the high fat-style Mediterranean diet may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).For the study, obese study participants reported both improved insulin resistance and cholesterol levels compared to those who ate a moderate carb (40%) or high carb (60%) diet over a five-month period.”

PS: I also have a low-carb option in my Advanced Mediterranean Diet (2nd Edition). And KMD: Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet is very low-carb.
