Abstract:Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a condition that affects 20-25% of adults worldwide. MetS is highly related to central obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. A Western diet high in fat and added sugar may contribute to the development of MetS, whereas a Mediterranean diet high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains may reduce the likelihood of MetS development. Understanding connections between dietary patterns and MetS among individuals with overweight and obesity is important as dietary interventions are a widespread method for MetS treatment and prevention.
