Lots of other diets have conflicting studies that leave people baffled. But one winner continues to stand out. The Mediterranean diet is still the golden standard (that's golden olive oil) by which other diets are measured. Get most of your fat calories from olive oil and nuts. Eat less red meat. Avoid refined grains. Eat lots of vegetables and fruits. You can cut your stroke and heart disease risk by almost a third. Probably more if you follow the diet for longer than the latest study.
I keep a bottle of olive oil out on my kitchen counter so I'll pour it on stuff. I keep bottles of olives in the fridge too and use them as spicing on foods.
The more sugar and simple carbos you eat the greater your risk of type II diabetes. So instead eat veggies with olive oil poured on them.
