my big, fat greek diet

THE FIRST TIME I ATE SUPPER WITH MY HUSBAND’S relatives in Athens, it was after 10 p.m. My husband’s cousin Kostas took his spot at the head of the table with two packs of cigarettes. There were three left in one pack, which he sat on top of a fresh one. He lit a cigarette, inhaled and then blew out a stream of smoke as long as the dining-room table, communicating to me (who did not speak one word of Greek) that he was going to chain-smoke throughout our meal and we were in for a long night. His wife brought a plate of meat to the table. It was the first of many plates of meats. This plate was a pile of fried meatballs stacked higher than Marge Simpson’s beehive.…

a simple and customizable way to manage weight

For decades, seemingly endless fad diets have popped up to try to solve the ever-present struggle of losing weight. Low-carb, low-fat and low-sodium are just a few of the diets claiming quick-fix weight loss, generally with one thing in common: restriction. Many of the best-known diets of the past, including trendy movements like the ketogenic and paleo diets, prioritize elimination. Since recent research suggests that more than 80% of those who shed significant pounds regained weight after five years, the restrictive nature of these popular diets could be connected to the obstacle of sticking with them. Within the past decade, however, health professionals have begun looking further back in time, all the way back to the Middle Ages, with the Mediterranean diet. In 2020, U.S. News and World Report evaluated 41…

eat for brain health

Susan Avery seemed more at home in the supermarket than a box of cereal. Wielding a coffee in one hand and a menu she had printed at home in the other, she rolled her shopping cart over to the bakery, hunting for the perfect whole-grain loaf. She spotted a man wearing a black Wegmans cap and solicited his help. “Sir? Can you tell me—Chet? Do you have any other than just this one whole-wheat?” Avery was being picky because she’s on a diet. Not a diet to lose weight, but a diet to nourish her brain. As a professor in her 60s at Ithaca College in New York, Avery is especially keen to keep her mind sharp, yet recently she has had trouble remembering words. In the grocery store a few…

take a bite out of the blues

Want a quick mood tweak? Down a coffee for an energy boost, enjoy some ice cream or french fries for a little bump in joy, or sit down with a big bowl of chicken soup to feel comfort. “We all seem to understand that these types of foods can offer a temporary mood change,” says Elizabeth Somer, R.D., author of Food & Mood. But here’s the thing: Rocky road won’t lead you down a path to more energy and less anxiety. That side of fries won’t buoy your brain health and ward off depression. And while chicken soup may very well soothe the soul, having a daily serving between a skipped breakfast and a salty, fatty dinner will do absolutely nothing positive for your state of mind. What just might?…

the real mediterranean diet

In the spring of 1948, an American social scientist named Leland Allbaugh departed for the island of Crete with the intention of fixing it. At the time, Greeks had the lowest per capita income in Europe and Cretans had the lowest income in Greece. Malaria and “diseases of filth,” like dysentery, were widespread. All this led Allbaugh to conclude in a letter to his Rockefeller Foundation funders that “the Cretans have a potential need for almost everything.” In an attempt to catalog those needs, Allbaugh carried out seven months of intensive field research. Fanning out across the spare, rocky land, he and his team visited farmers’ fields and workers’ factories, monitored the care of the sick and counted up the ways the moribund had died. But most important, the Allbaugh group…
