Hi, I recently yesterday saw a cardiologist and he said with the food rigmen that the doctor khan here recommended me to eat was high in cholesterol and other things that is bad for my heart so I want to avoid that or stop the meal plan. My physciatrist recommended I go on the medditerainian diet as he said it was the best/best in the world for my brain/brain health so I want to switch to that. Like I said before I prefer to have a food plan for my body type witch is between a ectomorph/mesomorph or mesomorph that will never give me any physical diseases, cavities or periodontist, diabetes, cancer, make me fat within a 191 dollars a month food budget. It is a "diet" however I am not trying to loose weight here, I am trying to gain weight as I am a bit underweight at around 166pounds or a few more pounds and I want to be at a healthy weight or normal weight for my body type. If there is a Mediterranean food regimen/plan based on my preferences then what is that?
