Mediterranean Diet and inflammation

In an recent study done at the University of Navarra in Spain, 41 obese subjects were placed on a low calorie Mediterranean style diet and followed for 8 weeks. Those who adhered most closely to the diet not only had the greatest weight loss, but had a marked reduction in blood levels of inflammation including CRP, complement C3 and TNF alpha. The conclusion of the researchers was that this type of diet, which I outline in The Adaptation Diet, not only helps with weight loss but can markedly reduce inflammation and improve features of the metabolic syndrome and other inflammatory conditions.

We often underestimate the effect of diet on metabolism and overly rely on medication instead. So before reaching for the prescription pad, give yourself a chance to improve your health by following The Adaptation Diet.
