There is some amount of debate on this subject, but most scientists agree that people should eat only limited amounts of meat and fat and sugar. Instead, people should eat more of vegetables, fruits, and legumes.
By eating a diet with less fat and sugar, people can reduce their risk of various health problems. The most important of these are heart disease and diabetes. High blood pressure is also connected to bad eating habits and to obesity.
By eating more of the healthy foods, people can also reduce their weight. Being overweight is a very big problem, especially in the United States.

The best kinds of food to eat are those that are low in fat and sugar content. We do need fat and sugar in our diets to stay healthy, they just need to be eaten in moderation. Foods high in fat and sugar can lead to numerous health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and dental problems. On the other side of the spectrum, other health issues can arise due to poor health such as depression.
As a general rule, it is good to stick to the food pyramid. Vegetables are good for our bodies because they are high in vitamins and minerals. They help us stay healthy and fight off infection. Lean meats like chicken and fish are also very healthy for our bodies and have a lot helpful benefits.
