Introducing our Mediterranean Eating Plan
"Developed in Italy over 20 years ago, the eating plan is the second element of the VIVINLINEA program. The eating plan is not a stressful, gimmicky weight loss diet that promises quick and miraculous results that will not last. It is a versatile, comprehensive program, modeled on the Mediterranean diet, for altering one's eating patterns in order to both meet nutrient requirements and help control weight in a healthy, satisfying manner. The plan allows the individual to tailor food choices to personal preferences. Designed to conform to the U.S. Dietary Guidelines, it emphasizes choosing fiber-rich fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain products, but does not exclude nutrient-rich choices from the dairy and protein food groups, thus ensuring a wide variety of nutrient sources. When followed within the VIVINLINEA recommendations, the eating plan provides a rational, satisfying means of achieving and maintaining appropriate body weight while improving one's lifestyle and health."
