My doctor told me to follow a mediterranean style diet - there really isn't, to my knowlege, a plan out there for this diet like Atkins or South Beach. The basics of the diet are avoid all red meat (have maybe once or twice a month), chicken or pork once or twice a week but no more. You should be eating a lot of fish and shellfish combined with lots of fruits and veggies - look for the complex carbs.
At first it's a little daunting because the diet appears to be somewhat high in fats BUT they are the right kinds of fats and you will see that while you may have a meal with 20 grams of fat you are only getting 2 grms of saturated fat.
For me specifically I was told to aim for 40 to 45 grams of carbs per meal and only 15 grams of fat per meal. That fat thing is a killer BUT I have found things like the Progresso Clam Chowder - the original one, not the lower fat or fat free ones, fits within my diet quite well, I do go a little over my fat on that one sometimes though if I am really hungry, lol.
HOpe that is helpful for you. If you are wondering what sorts of foods to eat, just do a general search for mediterranean meals. You should get a LOT of results.
