Food moderation appears to be the watchword.

When it comes to food, as with many other things in life, moderation appears to be the watchword. Long-term research involving over 135,000 people from 18 low, middle and high-income countries across five continents indicates that diets associated with the lowest risk of death include moderate amounts of fruit, vegetables and fat, but few carbohydrates. People exposed to the lowest risk of death eat three to four servings (about 375 to 500 grams) of fruits, vegetables and legumes per day.
