Foods Allowed:
Lean meats
Fresh Fruits
Nuts and seeds
Healthy oils, ie, coconut oil

Foods to avoid
Cereal grains
Grain-like seeds
Starchy vegetables
Salt-containing foods
Fatty cuts of meat

(Cordain, 2015).
An active lifestyle and regular exercise is encouraged.
The Mediterranean Diet is based on the traditional cuisine eaten by those living in the countries of the Mediterranean region. The diet is promoted by many government health organisations as the best diet to improve cardiovascular health. The health benefits of the Mediterranean diet were first identified by scientists in the 1970s and continue to be researched today. (Altomare et al., 2013)
The Mediterranean diet encourages the following:
• Olive oil as the main source of fat consumed
• High intake of vegetables with each meal
• Fish, seafood and legumes as the main source of protein
• Fruits and nuts for snacking
• Low consumption of meat, eggs and butter
• Wholegrain foods included with meals
• Sweets and desserts eaten sparingly (Johnson, 2013)

Moderate exercise daily is recommended (Johnson, 2013)

The South Beach Diet is a low-GI diet, which was originally developed to assist heart patients in the United States. This diet has no calorie counting and no limits on portions. It encourages the consumption of three meals and two snacks daily as well as following an exercise plan (Lee, 2013).
The South Beach Diet consists of three different phases to help dieters maintain a healthy lifestyle. Phase one is a two-week quick weight loss regime to jump start the diet for people who have more than 10lbs to lose through eliminating cravings. Phase two re-introduces low-GI carbs and lasts until weight loss goal is achieved. Phase three never ends and helps dieters maintain their goal weight for life (Agatston, 2015).

Following a regular exercise schedule is encouraged for success.
