Similar to the Mediterranean diet, the Nordic diet emphasizes mostly plant-based foods like whole grains, vegetable oils, nuts, legumes and fruits and vegetables. However, since Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland have different climates than the Mediterranean, some of these specific foods differ. Mediterranean Diet vs. Nordic Diet These two plant-based diets are very similar, but each has its own regional flair.

By Elaine K. Howley, Contributor Dec. 6, 2019. Nordic Diet Could Be Local Alternative To Mediterranean Diet: The Salt The Mediterranean diet is one of the healthiest styles of eating in the world.

But in many regions, including Denmark and. The Mediterranean Diet (MedDiet) has been acknowledged as a healthy diet. However, its relation with risk of major chronic diseases in non-Mediterranean countries is inconclusive. The Nordic diet is proposed as an alternative across Northern Europe, although its associations with the risk of chronic diseases remain controversial. The main difference between the Mediterranean and Scandinavian Diet (except, of course, the kind of fruits and vegetables growing in each region) is the kind of oily substance for each case.

If, therefore, the nutritionists suggest the use of pure virgin olive oil as a fatty element, the Nordic Diet is the canola oil known as rapeseed oil. Now as noted in many sources, the Nordic diet has many similarities with the Mediterranean diet. Its main difference is the oil.

The Nordic diet recommends canola oil and you may have heard that canola oil is comparable to olive oil because both are sources of monounsaturated fat. They are not comparable. Instead of greens being chosen to accommodate the meat, The Nordic Diet operates in reverse. A diet that sees foods like broccoli, cabbage, and berries headline main courses will by default be much.

Overall, I give the Nordic Diet higher marks than the Mediterranean Diet. But there’s one caveat: I advise my clients to rely on extra virgin olive as their primary oil rather than canola. The Nordic diet is very similar to the Mediterranean diet. The biggest difference is that it emphasizes canola oil instead of extra virgin olive oil.

As critics correctly point out, some of the. The diet features foods that are traditionally eaten in Nordic countries like Norway, Sweden, and Iceland — hence its name. And, according to the World Health Organization, both the Mediterranean and Nordic diets reduce the risks of cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases.

  • When they said low saturated fat they told me that this is just another liberal bullshit plan to make people feel guilty about eating red meat.

  • Wearing pelts? �� This is a very good diet to follow. The diet really promotes lower fat dairy, like skyr, and extreme whole grains (not just ground up whole grains), particularly ones that are not modern wheat varieties. I think that this is very important to note. (The Viking Diet | Better Health Through Nordic Foodways https://youtu.be/lAik4QNMKug)

  • This diet is the biggest hogwash, biggest bullshit the west has been propagating. So why are they propagating it? Because they want people to buy the ingredients of this diet like olive oil, breads, cheeses, pasta, pastries, wines … most of which come from Europe. The best diet is the Paleo diet. What our stone age ancestors ate. The Mediterranean Diet is full of gluten as wheat is the main grain in pasta, pizza and breads. Its also full of dairy (cheeses) and sugar. Only good is the olive oil, grapes, herbs and veggies. Even tomato has lectins an allergen.
