How serious can healthy diet be?

Healthy eating contributes to overall dietary wellness. For example, individuals who consume more fruits and vegetables report greater well-being and decreased rates of mental distress and other symptoms of depression and anxiety. The American Heart Association (AHA) encourages individuals to adopt a diet that emphasizes fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and red meats that are low in saturated fats and cholesterol. It also suggests individuals consume at least half a serving daily of fiber from whole whole grains, legumes, and vegetables as well as two to three servings of berries and vegetables. Additionally, AHA recommends reducing the intake of saturated fat throughout life and reducing the need for lipid-lowering medications as one way to prevent heart disease and keep one's cardiovascular health at optimal levels.
