The aim of the present study was to evaluate the relationship between adherence to the Mediterranean diet (MedDiet) and MetS.
Methods and results: A cross-sectional study was conducted with 808 high cardiovascular risk participants of the Reus PREDIMED Centre. MetS was defined by the updated National Choles- terol and Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III criteria.
An inverse association between quartiles of adherence to the MedDiet (14-point score) and the prevalence of MetS (P for trend < 0.001) was observed. After adjusting for age, sex, totalenergy intake, smoking status and physical activity, participants with the highest score ofadherence to the MedDiet (!9 points) had the lowest odds ratio of having MetS (OR [95% CI]of 0.44 [0.27e0.70]) compared to those in the lowest quartile.
Participants with the highest MedDiet adherence had 47 and 54% lower odds of having low HDL-c and hypertriglyceridemia MetS criteria, respectively, than those in the lowest quartile. Some componentsof the MedDiet, such as olive oil, legumes and red wine were associated with lower prevalence of MetS.
Conclusion: Higher adherence to a Mediterranean diet is associated with a significantly lower oddsratio of having MetS in a population with a high risk of cardiovascular disease.

This was also observed in men for the central obesity criteria Although there is some evidence that the Mediterranean dietary pattern protects against CVD few epidemio- logic studies have assessed the relationship between The present study is unique in assessing this relationship in an elderly population with a high risk of CVD and also a high baseline level of MetS risk factors (including diet).
Our main finding is that the highest adherence to MedDiet is associated with a lower prevalence of MetS defined by the Metabolic syndromeand its components, % (n) ATP III criteria. It is important to note that this association remained significant when the MetS criteria given by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) were used (data not shown) and adjustments had been made for BMI.
To the best of our knowledge, only one longitudinal study , two cross-sectional studies and one clinical trial[15] have been conducted to assess the asso- ciation between MedDiet and MetS. The longitudinal study, including only university graduates at low cardiovascular risk, reported an inverse association with the MetS (defined by the IDF criteria) but only weak associations with most of its defining criteria The two cross-sectional studies found contradictory results. In both studies, in contrast to our high risk participants, this association was analysed inpopulation samples with low cardiovascular risk. In a sample of the general Greek population, individuals with higher adherence to a MedDiet had a 20% lower odds ratio of having MetS In contrast, in a cross-sectional study performed on subjects from the general population of the Canary Islands no significant relationship between MedDiet In a Spanish cohort , after 6 years follow-up, participants with the highest Trichopoulou score at base- line presented the lowest cumulative incidence of MetS. In our study we observed a better relationship between MedDiet adherence and MetS when we used the 14-point food-item score compared with the Trichopoulou score.
For this reason, the 14-item MetDiet score should be evaluated in the future as a possible tool for analysing the a The metabolic syndrome was defined by using the updated relationship between MedDiet adherence and chronic National Cholesterol Education program’s Adult Treatment diseases. The advantage of the 14-item tool is that it is assessed using only a short questionnaire and, therefore,the application of a full-length food frequency question-naire may not be needed to assess adherence to the polynomial contrast and all the MetS components as MedDiet. However, no significant relationship between dependent variables.
