ATHENS, Greece—According to a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, close adherence to a Mediterranean-style diet achieved by close dietetic supervision improves endothelial function in subjects with abdominal obesity (AO) (2009;90(2):263-68).Researchers recruited 90 subjects with AO without cardiovascular disease (CVD) or type 2 diabetes. Participants were randomly assigned to the intervention or control group. Both groups were instructed to follow a Mediterranean-style diet for two months. Subjects in the intervention group additionally had to follow a specific relevant daily and weekly food plan with close supervision by a dietitian and provision of basic foods.
