Go Mediterranean. Dieting doesn't have to be about deprivation, especially when you follow a Mediterranean-style way of eating. This diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, seeds, bread, dairy, fish, olive oil, poultry and wine. Most of the fats in this eating regimen come from healthy monounsaturated fats. In addition to weight loss, a Mediterranean diet also prevents heart disease and has been shown to increase lifespan.
