    • 'Everything in moderation' diet advice may lead to poor metabolic health in US adults


      Diet diversity, as defined by less similarity among the foods people eat, may be linked to lower diet quality and worse metabolic health, according to researchers at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) and the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. The study was published today in PLOS ONE.


      "'Eat everything in moderation' has been a long-standing dietary recommendation, but without much empiric supporting evidence in populations. We wanted to characterize new metrics of diet diversity and evaluate their association with metabolic health," said Marcia C. de Oliveira Otto, Ph.D., first author and assistant professor in the Department of Epidemiology, Human Genetics and Environmental Sciences at UTHealth School of Public Health.

    • I always thought this sort of dietary advice was a cop-out that almost never helped people eat a healthy diet and maintain a healthy weight.

      It also massively oversimplifies the problems with the modern western diet. Got type 2 diabetes? 40kg overweight? Just eat everything in moderation, off you go!!!

      Thanks Sherrie.
