Fad diets may seem great at first, but the weightloss effects either stop completely or even do a 180 and result in you gaining even more weight than before. What if you could find a diet that was not only good for you and helped you lose weight but was oh-so-tasty too? The Mediterranean Diet delivers not only all this, but can prove to be the perfect beach body diet. Get ready to wear that itty, bitty bikini!

Things You Will Need

non-processed foods



whole grain bread


olive oil

red wine

Step 1

To get on the road to your perfect bikini body, locate food stores in your area with locally grown, non processed foods.

Step 2

Buy fruits, vegetables, whole grain breads, nuts and seeds, seafood and yogurt. These are the main staples of this beach body diet.

Step 3

Focus on detoxification of your body with these foods. Small amounts of these foods will help you feel full longer than gorging on a fast food cheeseburger.

Step 4

Watching the fats you eat is important for your beach body diet. Monounsaturated fats found in olive oil and nuts are good for the body. Not all fats are bad.

Step 5

Eat fish such as salmon or trout. Omega-3 fatty acids found in these fish are good for you.

Step 6

Use olive oil to cook with. Discard butter, margarine, vegetable oil and everything else you⠀ ™ve ever used on your food. Olive oil is an important part of any healthy, cleansing diets.

Step 7

Limit the amount of red meats you eat. These can lead to increased risks of heart disease or other cardiovascular problems.

Step 8

Drinking red wine sparingly with your dinner is popular with the Mediterranean Diet. Antioxidants found in wine help with your circulatory system.

Step 9

Combine your new healthy Mediterranean diet with a fun exercise.

Tips & Warnings

  • Limiting red meat and dairy intake helps stave off heart disease, some cancers and Alzheimerâ € ™s.
  • 1.5 million people were analyzed in a study for up to 18 years and those who were strict about the Mediterranean Diet had 9% lower death rate from cardiovascular problems, 6% lower cancer incidence and 13% fewer people developing Alzheimer's.

  • Watch the amount of fats you are eating. Even if the types of fats are healthy, it doesn't mean it won't make you pack on weight if eaten in excess.
