The Mediterranean Diet Revisited: What’s on your plate?

People often feel bombarded and confused with information about diet and health, especially as some of it is conflicting.  But what do you need to keep you fit and healthy?

Many people are aware that a Mediterranean diet provides many health benefits, particularly in terms of obesity and risk of heart disease…but what does a real Mediterranean diet put onto a UK plate?

Dr Richard Hoffman from the School of Life and Medical Sciences will be talking about the health benefits of Mediterranean plant foods at “The Mediterranean Diet Revisited” conference being held at Fishmongers’ Hall in London on Friday 2 November 2012.  As one of a series of high profile speakers at the event, Richard will reveal the lessons that can be learned from the Mediterranean diet in order to improve the consumption and nutritional value of plant foods in the UK.

The one-day conference, which HRH The Princess Royal will attend, takes a look at what constitutes a Mediterranean diet,  including the latest evidence on why it contributes to good health and how it could be adopted more widely and sustainably.
