J0404866 The Mediterranean diet seems to be a good diet plan for a healthy weight loss but now new studies from Athens are suggesting it might be the best diet for bone health too. Greek women who followed the typical Greek fare of olive oil, abundant amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables, fish, and minimal red meat shared the greatest bone density. According to the study, “These results suggest that this eating pattern could have bone-preserving properties throughout adult life.”

So keep consuming your calcium, magnesium and vitamin D for bone health but you might also include more of the food choices the Mediterranean diet includes.
