Last quote about Mediterranean diet
I don't view these things as either-or. My advice is to start with the Mediterranean diet because it's good for you in multiple ways – lowering risk of cognitive decline, reduction in some cancers, lower risk of diabetes – that go beyond what statins do. So, that's a great starting point. That's a colossal mistake. Quantitatively, you get more mileage from optimal exercise and diet than statins, so it's not one or the other: Everybody needs the diet and exercise, and some people, despite that, will still need statins. It's not a failure; it's not a character flaw – if you need it, you need it.

We know the Mediterranean diet reduces risk of heart disease but still don't know exactly why. There is probably more than one reason, and this study suggests that one mechanism might be that the Mediterranean diet improves the function of HDL. For people who are interested in reducing their risk of heart disease, the Mediterranean diet is probably the best proven diet to reduce risk. I think the majority of people who don't have other major dietary concerns should look toward the Mediterranean diet as a heart healthy diet.

A bigger brain is in general better for you because at least in late life, it makes a person more resistant to the effects of brain diseases. People who have bigger brains in general can tolerate more brain pathology, more brain disease, than those who have smaller brains. So the reduced loss in the people who adhered to the Mediterranean diet in general would be expected to protect them from developing dementia.

It's possible that other components of the Mediterranean diet are responsible for this relationship, or that it's due to all of the components in combination. In our study, eating habits were measured before brain volume was, which suggests that the diet may be able to provide long-term protection to the brain. Still, larger studies are needed to confirm these results.

I recommend a high-fat Mediterranean-style diet, rich in fruits, non-starchy veggies, nuts, beans, fish, whole grains, and vegetable oils; and including yogurt, cheese, poultry, and occasional half serving a week of fresh, unprocessed red meat.

When new agriculture was introduced into the region with the introduction of new technological tools, it has made things easier in terms of the production of olive oil. It has improved the way we extract the oil and it sells well in the market. And rural women have benefited, she now has her own source of income. She doesn't wait for her husband to give her anything, and thankfully for these efforts – olive oil, honey, meat, soap – now women don't have to rely on their husbands to buy medicine for their children for example or to pay for their schooling. She has money in her pocket.

It's nothing very professional. Fish is my favorite, grilled with olive oil. And I try to have some carbs, maybe pasta or rice. I try to eat nothing heavy before competition.

Our hypothesis is that not all fats are the same; we have to differentiate fats from vegetables and fats from animal sources. Vegetable fat such as extra virgin olive oil and nuts help to reduce body weight when these foods are consumed in a healthy diet such as a Mediterranean diet.
