Fish in the
Mediterranean Diet

Proper nutrition plays, together with an active lifestyle, a fundamental role in the prevention of a number of diseases, which are very common nowadays, the so-called “diseases of well-being” and can be illustrated by means of the Food Pyramide.

Foods such as cereal, fruit, vegetables, olive oil, dairy products and yogurt are at the base of a healthy diet and they should be consumed on a daily basis, or even twice a day.
The foods in the central portion of the pyramide (white meats, legumes, fresh chees and fish) should be eaten two or more times a week. Finally, at the top of the pyramid we find red meat and sweets which are to be consumed once a week.
Fish plays a fundamental role in the Mediterranean diet. Scientific evidence shows that, if consumed in right quantities in a balanced diet, fish can help you keep healthy.
In fact, fish (both fresh and preserved), provides precious nutrients such as proteins of high biological value, mineral salts and omega-3 acids.
This is why the New Pyramid of the Sustainable Mediterranean Diet proposed by IFMeD recommends eating at least 2 servings of fish per week.
