Best Diet For 2023 Is The Science-Backed Mediterranean Style Of Eating

What a shocker. The best diet for 2023 is once again the science-backed Mediterranean style of eating!

Now you might think I'm biased because I’m Greek but I’m not the one voting on this! And the gold medals keep piling up. For the 6th year in a row, the Mediterranean style of eating earned the title of best overall diet, according to the 2023 U.S. News & World Report. Meals from the sunny Mediterranean also ranked first in the categories of best diet for healthy eating and best plant-based diet.

Yep, it reduces the risk for diabetes, depression, dementia, high cholesterol, and breast cancer. The diet, which is more of an eating style than a restricted diet, has also been linked to stronger bones, a healthier heart and longer life. It features simple, plant-based cooking,  fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and a heavy emphasis on extra-virgin olive oil.

Social interactions during eating and exercise are basic cornerstones of the Mediterranean style of eating. Lifestyle changes like eating with friends and family, socializing over meals, and enjoying your favorite foods are key.

If you've never tried it, you should. Science keeps telling us the same thing over and over. Maybe it’s time we listen?

Plastic Surgery Tip

Buccal Fat Removal: Is It Good For Everyone?

Buccal fat removal is trending but it might be the biggest regret of your life!

Beware of looking worse with Buccal fat removal! It's definitely not for everybody.

Buccal fat removal is a growing plastic surgery trend that's a bit concerning. Not only are a lot of people not candidates for the procedure, or don't understand which fat is actually removed but it can also makes you look worse as you age, especially concerning if you lose weight.

Please remember that as we grow older, the fat tends to leave the face naturally so this area can look really hollowed out if you've removed the buccal fat. So yes, it can actually accelerate facial aging. You might've been happy with Buccal fat removal in your 20s but after 40 it might not be the most flattering look. Another thing I've seen a lot with patients is they want their jowl fat removed or lifted and they think buccal fat removal will do this for them. In fact, it won’t.

Please talk to your surgeon to make sure you understand all the pros and cons of this plastic surgery trend that many celebrities are flocking to and is viral on social media. Many are claiming it's a new procedure but it’s really not. It's been around for many years.

There's just a big difference between Buccal fat removal on social media versus real life.
