Back in the ’80s, we collectively believed that “fat-free” was the diet to strive for, especially if one was trying to lose weight or lower one’s risk of heart disease.

Those consuming a traditional Mediterranean-style diet often including ample portions of fish and liberal use of olive oil had an exceptionally low risk of heart disease. The French who consume the most cheese in the world had lower body weight rates and a lower rate of heart disease.

There are “meet-up” groups in most metropolitan areas that hold meetings that are a blend of social and informative with regard to diet and nutrition, often include excursions to popular and also not that well-known eateries. Combine an adventure with opportunities to meet people and discuss topics of common interest.
