Five Is Good, But Seven May Be Better

Current dietary guidelines recommend that people consume a minimum of five servings of fruits and vegetables a day, but researchers say that number should be upped to seven. A study of more than 65,000 men and women shows that the risk of premature death decreases with increased fruit and vegetable consumption. Interestingly, fresh vegetables appear to provide the greatest benefit, followed by salad and then fruit.

It is shocking how many people do NOT eat vegetables every day.

In my case, I do not eat enough fruit every day.

I hear that some developing nations are now seeing a rise in diseases since their newly affluent people can now afford to buy Western-style food (sugary concoctions, hamburgers, etc.).

If you eat 7 fruits and vegetables (carbohydrates) there will not be space to put your daily necessity of proteins and fats (lipids) to maintain nutritional balance.........

Eat the way you can, there is nothing into saying 5 or 7.

"Saying" and "supplying" are two different things.

Make every post as if it was the first one in the thread.

I have noticed that if I eat a salad with at least seven different fresh vegetables with vinegar and oil that I mix myself daily my appetite for junk just disappears. I put raisins and walnuts on the top and slice with a potato peeler fresh cloves of garlic. Maybe it is the fresh garlic that curbs the sweet tooth and junk desire. Best tip: don't have junk food in the house.
