The Mediterranean diet is a way of eating based on the traditional cuisine of countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea. Mediterranean diet is typically high consumption of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nut and seeds, and olive oil. Olive oil is the primary source of added fat in the Mediterranean diet. Olive oil provides monounsaturated fat, which has been found to lower total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels. (Source)
