Mediterranean Eating Is Tough on a Tight Budget

Experts agree that the Mediterranean diet gets a gold star when it comes to keeping people healthy, but a study found that following it is difficult for low-income people. Researchers who studied more than 13,200 Italian men and women learned that those with the largest paychecks had the best odds of sticking to the diet.
