The Mediterranean diet is widely recognized as being one of the best diets for weight loss and overall health. When compared to a typical western diet filled with processed foods, this plant-based diet is a safe, effective, and reliable bet.
However, conservative approaches typically yield moderate results. In contrast, radically unconventional diets have a greater potential to make significant changes — changes that may come with an increased health risk for some.
The keto diet is the perfect example of this, with a plethora of research backing the substantial impact this uncommon approach has on several conditions ranging from diabetes and obesity to neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and epilepsy. However, there are small subsets of the population that may worsen their health by following a low-carb, high-fat diet like keto.
Long story short, the Mediterranean diet and the keto diet both have significant advantages under different contexts. When we combine them into one diet, however, most of their downsides melt away, leaving us with a way of eating that can significantly improve every aspect of health.
