Hi! emoticon

I love Healthline and use it all the time for many health topics.
I'm curious. The site lists the weekly Mediterranean menu but doesn't show portion amounts. Do you have any resources that show Mediterranean Diet portions on a menu? Or do you know how to measure it out?

The reason I ask is, my son is eating much healthier and I think it would like the Mediterranean Diet. The problem is according to the menu you could eat any amount. He wants to lose weight not gain. How can I help him? If I input the food into the SP menu tracker it doesn't tell me the amounts of each food to input. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks!

@KATHLEEN624, I’m also doing Mediterranean low carb. It’s kinda like a pescetarian diet, which I was already on.

I made some changes to my Mediterranean diet plan. Beginning of December I eliminated all red meat and I don't even miss it. I do watch my carb intake but I am eating more fish and veggies now. So I am following a Mediterranean moderate carb food plan.

I have been dairy free for a long time but I recently added back moderate portions of cheese to my plan. Good protein and low carbs too. I still don't eat or drink any dairy other than cheese.

I like this meal plan and I have lost a few pounds too.

Thanks for the email Resa.

I just read that article here on site with the helpful weekly menu ideas. I am definitely on the right track with my food choices. I am loving this way of eating. I have added more salmon and fish to my diet since October and I am basically dairy free except a little feta here and there for two years already. In October I decided to eliminated all red meat. Not sure if it will be forever LOL but I am trying.

Thanks I enjoyed reading the article.
