Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean diet is built on the traditional ways of eating in countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea including Greece, Italy, and Spain. This diet is based on eating whole foods that promote healthy ageing, healthy weight maintenance, and has a positive impact on osteoarthritis management.

The Mediterranean diet is the most widely and comprehensively studied diet. It is packed with vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, and antioxidants which are crucial in supporting joint health. The main focus of this diet is to improve diet quality whilst reducing energy dense, low nutrient foods that contribute to weight gain and excess joint loading.
