Whether you follow for the full 30 days, or just choose a few recipes to try out, you'll reap the benefits of the Mediterranean diet, plus recipes low in carbs (but not too low that you miss out on important nutrients) to help you meet your health and nutrition goals. Speaking of health benefits—there's a reason the Mediterranean diet is consistently voted "best diet" by U.S. News & World Report. Research shows that the Mediterranean diet can improve heart health, reduce the risk of some cancers and protect our brains. Plus, the Mediterranean diet paired with a lower-carb diet may be particularly beneficial in lowering blood sugars for people with diabetes. Whatever your reason, you're sure to love the delicious recipes and snack in this plan.

In this healthy low-carb meal plan, we capped the calories at 1,500 calories a day, which is a calorie level most people will lose weight following, and also included modifications for 1,200 and 2,000 calories a day, depending on your calorie needs. It's important to note that healthy weight loss is gradual weight loss (about 1 to 2 pounds per week), so if you're feeling hungry at 1,500 calories, bump it up till you feel satisfied and slowly taper down to fewer calories over the next few months.

Healthy Low-Carb Foods to Focus on for the Mediterranean Diet:

  • Fish: Fish, especially fish rich in healthy omega-3 fatty acids like salmon and albacore tuna, are staples of the Mediterranean.
  • Lean Proteins: Chicken, turkey and eggs are particularly important in the low-carb version of this diet.
  • Healthy Fats: Olives, avocado, olive oil, nuts and seeds are satisfying and delicious.
  • Vegetables: Nutritious vegetables, particularly leafy greens like spinach and kale, should be included in large amounts.
  • Fruits: Although they contain carbohydrates, fruits are a great source of vitamins and fiber and should be included. High-fiber fruits, like berries, apples and pears are particularly important to include.
  • Whole Grains: Although they're higher in carbohydrates, whole-grain carbs like quinoa, oatmeal and brown rice should still be included in moderation.
