The prevalence of obesity, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases in Lebanon has attained alarming rates. Studies have shown a positive effect of adherence to Mediterranean diet MedDiet on the prognosis of chronic diseases and obesity. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to assess the adherence to MedDiet among 1030 Lebanese adults. Mean adherence to the MedDiet among adults in Lebanon was not sufficiently adequate and was lower than a healthy score (60.8%, mean adherence 8/14 <9). National awareness about MedDiet should be spread among adult population to increase the adherence which can be reflected positively on their health.
