The Mediterranean Diet Fades in Mediterranea
Fascinating article in the NY Times. Even Mediterraneans are having a tough time following the Mediterranean diet these days.
A Greek man laments the influx of junk food and cheese:
"If we continue like this, we’re going to become like Americans, and no one wants that.”
Fast-food culture and cattle ranchers don't like the Mediterranean diet — it calls for red meat just once a month. If we all ate like that, McDonalds/Burger King/Wendys would all be out of business in a year.
