Mediterranean Diet Alone May Lower Diabetes Risk

MONDAY, Jan. 6 (HealthDay News) -- Adults at risk for heart disease who eat a Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil can lower their chances of developing diabetes , even without restricting calories or boosting lean body exercise , new research suggests. In the study, Spanish researchers followed more than 3,500 older adults at high risk of heart disease. The researchers assigned them to one of three groups: a Mediterranean diet with extra-virgin olive oil, a Mediterranean diet supplemented with mixed nuts, or a low-fat diet, which served their website as the comparison. They did not get special instructions on losing weight or increasing their physical activity. A Mediterranean diet focuses on fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fish, besides the olive oil. <br>News source: http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=176040
