The Mediterranean All-You-Can-Eat Chocolate Diet

There are diets that most of us are used to, and the Mediterranean diet goes for a different route. People going for this diet may eat nuts and eggs to their heart’s content, and yes, even chocolate! Only, it should have more than 50% cocoa. It allows them to have as much fish, seafood, low-fat cheese, and whole-grain cereals as they want.

If you are looking to follow this diet, you must also stick to having olive oil, which you use on salads as well as cooked veggies abundantly. Also, you must have at least two servings a day of vegetables, with at least one of those servings in the form of a salad, on top of at least three servings a day of fresh fruit.

Legumes, which include garbanzo beans, lentils, soybeans and peas, must be eaten at least three times a week. Additionally, you should eat fish or seafood three times a week, with at least one meal of a fatty fish like salmon, tuna or sardines.

A sauce made with tomatoes, garlic and onions simmered in lots of olive oil at least twice a week must also be a staple in your diet. You can pour the sauce on pasta, rice or vegetables. If you’re a wine drinker, you can have it with meals, at least seven glasses a week.

It goes without saying that there is also a list of foods you have to limit. Those include: cream, butter, margarine, pâté, lunch meats, French fries, potato chips, soft drinks and other drinks with sugar added.

Don’t shy away from the oil and nuts, considering they tend to make you full, making you eat less of other foods. Truth be told, nuts are ideal to be eaten at dinner time, since they are so filling.

I’m rambling on while the main idea is that you can eat as much chocolate as you want! This diet is supposedly based on what people in Mediterranean countries used to eat.
