30 N+S The Mediterranean Diet

QUOTE from Dr Fung (emphasis mine): “Widely acknowledged as healthy, the Mediterranean diet is high in oleic acid, the monounsaturated fats contained in olive oil. Olives are native to the Mediterranean region, and olive oil was being produced as early as 4500 BC. Ripe olive fruit is crushed into a paste and the oil is extracted using a press. The term “virgin” refers to oil that is extracted using these mechanical means only and is certainly the best choice.”[1]

NOTE – What does it say?







What gets my attention?
Do I understand the need or problem?
Do I understand the potential solution?
Do I understand how to apply that strategy?
What questions do I have for the experts? What might be the answers?
Who needs to hear this?
What do I do next?
