Hello, Everyone. I am so excited to be here. I have heard about the Mediterranean diet, but don't really know what it is. I anxious to learn. I have been a vegetarian for many years now, and I think this will help me with meal planning, preparation. etc. Here I go, off on another adventure!

Welcome Michelle! Yes, this is a great lifestyle... remember it is a "lifestyle" and not just a "diet"! You must still watch your portions balancing with exercise in order to lose weight. I'm sure you will be able to do it. Eating this healthy way makes it so much easier, and the benefits are huge! Plus you have all of us to help you along the way!! WooHoo!!

Welcome Michele,

This is a great team and the Mediterranean Diet works. I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes and in less than six months my A1C glucose levels went down. I am so happy that I don't have to take medication, but I must continue to watch what I eat and exercise more .

Wish you the best in your forthcoming lifestyle changes.

Margaret

Hi. My name is Michele. I am glad that I found this spark team. My husband's family has a history of diabetes and heart disease so I was researching a couple different "diets" and stumbled across the Mediterranean way of eating and how now it is linked to reducing the risk factors of heart disease and diabetes. I figured it would be something that both of us could learn to do together. So I searched Sparkpeople and found you. I am reading the Mediterranean diet so we haven't started just yet. I hope to in the next two weeks. I have a lot of weight to lose so I am excited to try this. I have already read some of your posts and it seems like you all love this way of life. I am glad to see that there is information on Spark people for this.

If you put in the effort, the rewards will be well worth it.
