These are the findings of a study done over more than 7,000 people. Extracts from article: “A Mediterranean diet supplemented with either extra virgin olive oil or mixed nuts may cut the risk of cardiovascular events by as much as 30% in subjects at high risk of developing heart disease, as compared with people advised to eat a reduced-fat diet.Those are the key findings from the randomized controlled PREDIMED primary-prevention trial presented here at the International Congress on Vegetarian Nutritionsubjects randomized to the Mediterranean diets were not told to reduce calories, a major barrier to success in many dietary interventions, particularly the long-supported “low-fat” approach….”Animal fat should be avoided,” Dr Ramón Estruch (Hospital Clinic, Barcelona, Spain) said, whereas “vegetal fats–extra virgin olive oil and nuts–should be recommended [within] a healthy food pattern such as the Mediterranean diet.”

With the help of hypnotherapy, changing patterns in our lives such as eating and exercise patterns can be encouraged and can become easier and faster to adapt. New patterns, motivation and desired outcomes can be rehearsed from a hypnotic state and integrated into our subconscious mind.
