BACKGROUND The epidemiological evidence supporting a causal link between Mediterranean diets and body weight is contrasting. We evaluated the effect of Mediterranean diets on body weight in randomized controlled trials (RCTs) using a meta-analysis. METHODS We searched English and non-English publications in PubMed, Embase, Scopus, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials from inception to January, 2010. Two evaluators independently selected and reviewed eligible studies. Sixteen… Expand
Systematic Review of the Mediterranean Diet for Long-Term Weight Loss.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the Mediterranean diet results in similar weight loss and cardiovascular risk factor level reduction as comparator diets in overweight or obese individuals trying to lose weight. Expand
[Olive Oil and Body Weight. Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials].
TLDR
A diet enriched with olive oil can be an important weight control strategy in people without previous cardiovascular events. Expand
Effects of a healthy Nordic diet on weight loss in adults: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled clinical trials
TLDR
Adherence to the ND significantly improves body weight; however, there is also no certainty that this diet is effective for improving other anthropometric indices and future studies regarding the effect of this dietary pattern in populations other than Nordic populations are highly recommended. Expand
Mediterranean diet and multiple health outcomes: an umbrella review of meta-analyses of observational studies and randomised trials
TLDR
An umbrella review of the evidence across meta-analyses of observational studies and randomised clinical trials investigating the association between the adherence to the Mediterranean diet and 37 different health outcomes found a robust evidence for a reduced risk of overall mortality, cardiovascular diseases, coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction, overall cancer incidence, neurodegenerative diseases and diabetes was found. Expand
The Effect of the Mediterranean Diet on Metabolic Health: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Controlled Trials in Adults
TLDR
A consistent direction of beneficial effect of the MD was observed for the vast majority of outcomes examined, suggesting the MD’s benefits on metabolic health, supports the need to promote this dietary pattern to adult populations. Expand
A journey into a Mediterranean diet and type 2 diabetes: a systematic review with meta-analyses
TLDR
The Mediterranean diet was associated with better glycaemic control and cardiovascular risk factors than control diets, including a lower fat diet, suggesting that it is suitable for the overall management of type 2 diabetes. Expand
Central obesity and the Mediterranean diet: A systematic review of intervention trials
TLDR
The potential for a Mediterranean diet intervention to reduce central obesity and in turn reduce obesity-related chronic disease risk and associated public health burden is highlighted. Expand
Weight loss with a modified Mediterranean-type diet using fat modification: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
A five-meal modified Mediterranean-type diet with two daily portion-controlled sweet snacks was effective for weight management in a self-help setting for overweight and grade 1 obese subjects and improved blood lipids even at 12 months. Expand
Effects of Mediterranean-style diet on glycemic control, weight loss and cardiovascular risk factors among type 2 diabetes individuals: a meta-analysis
  • R. Huo, T. Du, +4 authors X. Yu

TLDR
A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials provides evidence that MSD improves outcomes of glycemic control, body weight and cardiovascular risk factors in T2D patients. Expand
Effects of Popular Diets on Anthropometric and Cardiometabolic Parameters: An Umbrella Review of Meta-Analyses of Randomized Controlled Trials.
TLDR
Among all the diets evaluated, the Mediterranean diet had the strongest and most consistent evidence of a beneficial effect on both anthropometric parameters and cardiometabolic risk factors. Expand

Adherence to Mediterranean diet and health status: meta-analysis
TLDR
Greater adherence to a Mediterranean diet is associated with a significant improvement in health status, as seen by a significant reduction in overall mortality, mortality from cardiovascular diseases, incidence of or mortality from cancer, and incidence of Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer's disease. Expand
Obesity and the Mediterranean diet: a systematic review of observational and intervention studies
TLDR
The evidence points towards a possible role of the Mediterranean diet in preventing overweight/obesity, and physiological mechanisms can explain this protective effect, despite this, more research is needed to substantiate this association. Expand
Weight loss with a low-carbohydrate, Mediterranean, or low-fat diet.
BACKGROUND Trials comparing the effectiveness and safety of weight-loss diets are frequently limited by short follow-up times and high dropout rates. METHODS In this 2-year trial, we randomlyExpand
Effects of a Mediterranean-Style Diet on Cardiovascular Risk Factors
TLDR
A large-scale feeding trial in high-risk participants to assess the effects of 2 Mediterranean diets, one supplemented with virgin olive oil and the other supplemented with mixed nuts, compared with a low-fat diet on cardiovascular outcomes. Expand
Dietary fat intake and subsequent weight change in adults: results from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition cohorts.
TLDR
The findings do not support the use of low-fat diets to prevent weight gain and no significant association was observed between fat intake (amount or type) and weight change in this large prospective study. Expand
Adherence to the Mediterranean diet is associated with lower abdominal adiposity in European men and women.
TLDR
Results of this study suggest that adherence to a modified Mediterranean diet, high in foods of vegetable origin and unsaturated fatty acids, is associated with lower abdominal adiposity measured by WC in European men and women. Expand
The Medi-RIVAGE study: reduction of cardiovascular disease risk factors after a 3-mo intervention with a Mediterranean-type diet or a low-fat diet.
TLDR
After a 3-mo intervention, both diets significantly reduced cardiovascular disease risk factors to an overall comparable extent. Expand
Comparison of 3 ad libitum diets for weight-loss maintenance, risk of cardiovascular disease, and diabetes: a 6-mo randomized, controlled trial.
TLDR
Diet composition had no major effect on preventing weight regain, and both the LF and MUFA diets produced less body fat regain than did the control diet, and the dropout rate was lowest in the LF diet group, whereas fasting insulin decreased and the homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance and ratio of LDL to HDL improved with the MUFA diet.

Low-fat dietary pattern and weight change over 7 years: the Women's Health Initiative Dietary Modification Trial.
TLDR
A low-fat eating pattern does not result in weight gain in postmenopausal women and a similar but lesser trend was observed with increases in vegetable and fruit servings, and a nonsignificant trend toward weight loss occurred with increasing intake of fiber. Expand
Mediterranean alpha-linolenic acid-rich diet in secondary prevention of coronary heart disease
TLDR
An alpha-linolenic acid-rich Mediterranean diet seems to be more efficient than presently used diets in the secondary prevention of coronary events and death. Expand
