A HIGH-VEGETABLE, LOW-MEAT DIET along with regular exercise and alcohol consumption may be the best way for someone to maintain their weight suggests a large study.
A total of 79,236 healthy white adults were questioned in 1982 and again in 1992 about their diet and physical activities.
Weight gain was less common in people who ate at least 20 servings of vegetable per week, took a vitamin E supplement, smoked, or ran 1 to 3 hours per week.
Weight gain was more common in those who consumed red meat at least 3 times per week and in people who stopped smoking.
Weight loss in women was associated with walking 4 hours or more per week and regular alcohol consumption.
These activities were associated with a smaller effect in men.
