In today’s timeline, I show how the 1990s brought more research into health benefits of Mediterranean diet. So we see more quality studies and more studies into the effect of Mediterranean Diet on various health problems. Later, after finishing the timelines I will publish in-depth reviews of key studies for each disease. Also, I will produce food lists, eating plans, and recipes that help you switch to healthier eating.

Mediterranean Diet Improves Health is my review of a study of healthier eating in Chile. Specifically, I’m using this report to introduce some principles of Mediterranean Diet. Later I will expand on those principles in detail. Also, I will expand on how Mediterranean lifestyle can improve specific illnesses.
Mediterranean Diet Improves Health Audience
I wrote Mediterranean Diet Improves Health for anyone who wants to use healthier eating to fight a disease. In particular, this study shows improvements in obesity and Metabolic Syndrome from healthier eating. However, it also links to other diseases that have been improved by adopting Mediterranean eating plans.
My mission is to provide your food diary so that you can record food and drink intake (and exercise), and analyze your nutritional strengths and weaknesses.
I’ve never met anyone who keeps a food diary for fun. You will have your own reasons for keeping track of your diet, and I want to give you free tools that help you. This is a spin-off from my health website, where many patients look to improve their health through better diet. Many people want to simply lose weight for health or cosmetic reasons. Others have a health condition that dictates their nutritional requirements.
Whatever the reason, my food diary will become your way of tracking what you need. But, more than that, you will be able to call for help and advice from people in similar situations. With your food diary facts and your food friend’s devotion, you cannot fail to improve your health and wellbeing.
Your Food Diary Road Map
Move all PRAL tables from old health project, add index & explanations. Add Food diary features and benefits plan, with voting options. Introduce basic theme (website layout) changes with navigation.
Subject to software availability, commence basic diary registration and reporting on foodary.org (probable focus on favorite food choices and portion sizes). Extend forum usability.
My development plans are always heavily influenced by the feedback I receive, so please let me know what is important to you, using the comment box below.
During these early stages, I will be introducing some basic nutrition reference charts that allow you to analyze your diet. Soon, I will transform these into interactive tools to allow you to record and analyze what you eat. And optional discussion tools that allow you to seek advice on the best way to improve your diet. This website is deliberately quite basic at the moment, as I want to focus on features that you tell me you need.
I’ve kept to my usual standard of asking you to register before you participate in discussions here. This is a simple process for you, and I can assure you that I will never share your registration details with anyone else. Nor will I bombard you with unnecessary emails, though I might occasionally contact you about important developments.
People ask are peanuts acidic for 3 reasons. So, let’s look at those reasons. Then I’ll explain why it doesn’t matter if peanuts are acidic or alkaline. Because what matters is healthy balance with peanuts and the rest of your diet.
Peanut Allergy Warning.
I must warn anyone who suspects they have a peanut allergy to stop reading now. Then consult your doctor immediately. Because all allergies are serious, and beyond the scope of this website. However, if you want advice about what to ask your doctor, you can ask in the healthy eating forum.
Alkaline Diet Improves Blood Pressure is aimed at people with high blood pressure (hypertension). It summarizes one scientific study into the effects of alkaline diet on blood pressure.
Before I look at the results, it is important to understand the nature of the research. This is a statistical study that reveals a link between risk of high blood pressure and acid-forming diets. It does not look at individual cases. For you, it’s vital to get proper medical examination, and advice. The statistical link between increased high blood pressure and acid-forming diet might not apply to you. It is just a pointer to consider when you and your doctor assess what your options are for improving your health.
