It is rich in fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy foods and reduced in red meat, fats, and sweets. This healthy way of eating has been thoroughly tested in several large studies sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and has been scientifically proven to help people lose weight, lower their blood pressure and cholesterol, and even improve how they feel!"
