Cooking Program Study Shows How to Lose Weight, Save Money with Mediterranean Diet

In the March issue of the Journal of Hunger and Environmental Nutrition, researchers interested in finding solutions for food insecurity and the lack of access to nutritional foods for families on a tight budget, have found a simple method that is typically used to help people lose weight – a plant-based Mediterranean diet.

The researchers found that not only does a Mediterranean diet help families enhance their health by losing weight, but stretch their food budget dollars further as well.

According to a press release by The Miriam Hospital, the study was led by research dietitian Mary Flynn, Ph.D., RD, LDN of The Miriam Hospital in conjunction with the Rhode Island Community Food Bank who believes that her study’s findings demonstrate an attractive intervention that can help many lower-income families.
