The Mediterranean diet is structured on
1)Eating primarily plant-based foods, such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts
2)Replacing butter with healthy fats, such as olive oil
3)Using herbs and spices instead of salt to flavor foods
4)Limiting red meat to no more than a few times a month
5)Eating fish and poultry at least twice a week
6)Moderate drinking of red wine (1 to 2 short glasses with lunch or dinner)
The only harmful thing that could occur is if you were to consume something that you were allergic to.
