The best diet plan to help you live longer and lower your risk of type 2 diabetes symptoms


The key to living longer could be to eat a healthy, balanced diet – including at least five portions of fruit and vegetables every day – as well as regular exercise. But you could boost your life expectancy by regularly following the Mediterranean diet, it’s been claimed.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a well-rounded diet is crucial to prolonging your lifespan.

You could also boost your lifespan by doing regular exercise. It’s the “miracle cure” we’ve all been waiting for, according to the NHS.

Making some small diet or lifestyle changes could help to increase your life expectancy and avoid an early death.

One of the easiest ways to make sure that you live longer is to take your diet to the Mediterranean.

“A Johns Hopkins-led study of 6,200 men and women over eight years found that those who adopted four smart behaviours reduced the chance of death from all causes within that time frame by an astounding 80 percent,” it said.

“The study found that the healthiest people followed a Mediterranean-style diet.

“That means a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, tree nuts with healthy oils, fish [and less red meats], whole-grain carbs and olive oil for cooking.

“A Mediterranean-style diet, combined with regular exercise, a healthy weight, and not smoking, protected against early heart disease, slowed the build-up of plaque in artery walls, and reduced risk for an early death by 80 percent.”
