Hi, soon I am planning to switch to the Mediterranean food regimen and It needs to be at least 2000 calories a day because of the type of body I have according to my nurse. I am not trying to gain weight nor loose any but keep it the same or around the same witch is 170 pounds something. How much of each Mediterranean food items will I need to consume daily totaling to 2000 celeries a day using the food I have chosen?(I am not talking about how much it will all cost)the foods I have chosen are: 1.unprocessed oil or extra virgin olive oil. that is the cheapest in the store, not canned fish and not any processed meat OR replace cheapest fish with other non processed sea food. 3.cheapest fruit in the store that is NOT any of these fruits>>> raisins, blueberries, black berry's, pomegranates, oranges, grapefruits, and lemons. 4. lettuce and/or other vegetables for the same price. 5. nuts to replace the meat if its cheaper or to add with the meat. 6. seasonings of herbs and/or spices.
