Mediterranean-Style Diet Helps if You Already Have Heart Disease
The popular eating plan has been touted for helping to prevent heart disease. New research suggests it also has benefits if you are a heart patient.
A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, fish, nuts, and unrefined foods—along with a little olive oil—may help heart patients lower their risk of heart attack and stroke. A recent study found that following a Mediterranean-style diet offers protective benefits for individuals even after they have been diagnosed with heart disease.
