Dr. Oz Says So Too

Did You Know? Dr. Oz, who hails from Turkey, says that in his homeland, people always eat nuts. When you replace saturated fat in your diet with healthy fats like nuts, your cholesterol levels go down.

Dr. Oz has devoted at least two episodes of his show talking about the health secrets of the Mediterranean. The combination of healthy eating and an active lifestyle, he says, is what allows people of the Mediterranean to live longer, look younger and live better. And the best part? They don’t think of their eating habits as a diet plan; it’s simply their way of life.
