A Healthy Diet is Good for You!

So a new study comes out regarding the DASH diet (DASH=Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension). The study concludes that a diet high in vegetables and fruits and low in meat, sodium and fat, and combined with regular exercise, is good for your heart. Really? Wow. Who knew that eating a healthy diet would be healthy? Amazing that a healthy diet and exercise is good for you. I mean, who knew? We REALLY needed this study to tell us to stop eating crap and get off our rear ends and exercise. I wonder how much money was spent on this study. Because honestly, faithful readers, even though I don't know how much money was spent on this particular study, they could have given me half the money and I could have told them the same thing. Seriously.

Sometimes I laugh at the big revelations that are released from these types of studies...I mean, didn't we alreday know this?

You would be surprised how many people don't think the DASH diet is healthy...for example the Atkins diet is heavy on animal protein and many swear by it, which I believe is unhealthy. My favorite is the Dean Ornish idea of a healthy diet that's similar to the DASH diet.
