Keto vs Mediterranean: What’s Better for Longevity?
In a keto diet vs Mediterranean diet fight, an expert tells us which one takes the lead for a healthier and longer life. The Mediterranean diet and the ketogenic diet both promise to help you lose weight, but which is healthier? Despite the fact that both the Mediterranean diet and the keto diet have been around for many years, new health claims are constantly being made about them. The most recent is a Longevity Diet’, which is a set of eating recommendations compiled by biochemist Valter Longo, Director of the University of Southern California’s Longevity Institute. We cover the advantages and disadvantages of each, the foods that are and are not permitted, and the purported health advantages of following each eating pattern.
What is Mediterranean diet? A diet is always less of a pattern and more of a way of life. So how does the Mediterranean diet look? This diet features characteristic of the seaside region that it originates in, has a number of red and processed meats, added sugars. The processed foods in this diet are moderate, and there are plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, and legumes as well as healthy fats. The Mediterranean diet also emphasises socialising during meals, drinking red wine occasionally, and engaging in regular physical activity.
Side effects of Mediterranean diet: The Mediterranean diet is so open-minded that some people may find it challenging to adhere to its lack of rigidity. The Mediterranean diet may need more effort to prepare meals and be more expensive.
