For many people, diet is an afterthought, but the Norwegian diet appears to have many benefits for top level sports people and people in general. This may be one of the things, among many, which does not hurt elite Nordic sports people. What caught my eye was the amount of fish that Norwegians consume. Of course, they have some of the best fishing areas in the world. Utilizing fish as a protein source is good. Also interesting to see the plentiful amount of nuts and berries that Norwegians consume.
What I do remember about Nautic people many years ago was that a country like Finland had among the highest rates of heart disease in the world because they ate so much dairy but then there was a Revolution in Finland with diet and they became among the healthiest people in the world. But I think Norway, is even healthier than Finland for longevity even though I was too lazy to check the statistics.
Norwegians eat too little fish, a lot of frozen pizza. Not much berries and nuts. 70 percent over 25 BMI. These problems were adressed in Norway yesterday. There is no such thing as a Norwegian diet.
