LONDON — A new study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) has found that healthy eating habits can lead to weight loss and even health improvements.
Researchers from the University of Bristol found that people who regularly eat fish and seafood have lower levels of certain nutrients, and people who eat meat and poultry have higher levels of iron and zinc.
The study looked at the dietary habits of more than 1,500 people who were asked to complete a 12-item questionnaire measuring health and diet.
The results show that fish and shellfish are more nutrient dense than white rice, potatoes and pasta, and they are also more nutrient rich than most fruit and vegetables.
The study also showed that people with higher intakes of vitamin D and C were at higher risk for obesity and heart disease.
The researchers found that fish intake had a significant impact on the risk of obesity, with those with the lowest intakes of these nutrients having the highest risk.
They also found that the link between fish consumption and heart health was not as strong as previously thought, suggesting that this might be due to different pathways.
The authors say this may be because the diet may be lower in nutrients that are essential for the body to function properly.
A recent study found that red meat, poultry, and fish contain a lot of iron, while plant foods have more calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc, and vitamin D.
