Many long-term health benefits have been associated with following a Mediterranean lifestyle, including weight loss, reduced blood pressure and cholesterol, and reduced risk for various chronic diseases. Yet, it is not about cutting calories and restricting foods like many popular Diet trends in America today. Learn more about the Mediterranean lifestyle by attending the FREE workshop hosted by Amber Webb, Weld County Family & Consumer Sciences Extension Agent.
