Abstract

A randomized, open, cross-over study of a vegetarian diet (VD) compared to the Mediterranean diet (MD) over three months showed that both reduced body weight and body fat mass. The VD decreased LDL cholesterol, and MD reduced triglyceride levels. The MD reduced inflammatory markers, and the VD reduced vitamin B12 levels.
