When you look in the mirror and see yourself, you can’t tell whether you’re beautiful or ugly.
But you can tell if you’re eating a healthy diet and getting enough nutrients, a study from the University of California, Los Angeles has found.
The study, which was published online in the journal Clinical Nutrition, shows that people who eat the healthiest diets are less likely to develop diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
“The beauty of this study is that it shows that we need to eat healthy to be healthy,” said lead author Toni Zuckerman, PhD, a professor of health promotion at the UC San Diego School of Medicine.
“We need to understand how to get enough nutrients from a balanced and balanced diet.
And we need it now because our bodies are telling us that they can’t keep up.”
Dr Zuckermans research group has focused on the impact of eating a varied diet on metabolic health, including weight management and insulin sensitivity.
He and his colleagues found that people with the healthliest diets were about 20 percent less likely than those with the most unhealthy diets to develop type 2 diabetes, which can be life-threatening.
The study also found that when people who consumed the healthier diet had a low body mass index (BMI), the proportion of calories they were getting from carbohydrates was about the same as when they were eating the unhealthy diet.
The researchers found that this difference in carbohydrate intake did not appear to be associated with any type of health risk.
But the results could not be generalized to all people.
The researchers also found no difference in insulin sensitivity between people who ate the healthily balanced diet and those who ate a high-carbohydrate diet.
“We know that obesity increases insulin sensitivity, which in turn leads to insulin resistance, which leads to diabetes and can lead to heart disease,” Zuckremans said.
“And if we eat too much, we can’t burn off the excess energy, so we have a problem with insulin sensitivity.”
To determine if people with healthy diets were more likely to experience diabetes or cardiovascular disease, the researchers took data from more than 6,000 people from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) between 2006 and 2014.
The participants were followed for a total of 21 years.
The team then looked at the associations between weight and diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
The participants were categorized into three groups based on their BMI: underweight, normal weight and overweight.
People who were in the normal weight category were those who were between 5’2″ and 5’6″.
The participants who were underweight had a BMI of less than 25.
For example, a person in the overweight category had a weight of less the normal-weight range.
The group who was overweight had a higher body mass Index (BIA) and a higher total body fat percentage (TBM) than those who did not have a BMI above 25.
The research showed that overweight people who were eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains were significantly less likely, on average, to develop Type 2 diabetes and a history of cardiovascular disease than people who did have a healthy weight.
The scientists also found a significant association between type 2 disease and type 1 diabetes.
The unhealthy diet did not increase risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attack, stroke or kidney stones.
The healthy weight group also had a lower rate of obesity, Type 2 and diabetes than the overweight group.
People who were overweight were more than twice as likely to be diagnosed with diabetes, compared to the healthy weight and underweight groups.
Those who were overweight had the same risk of developing diabetes as the healthy group.
The good news is that the study did not show that the healthy diet had any effect on the risk of Type 2 or cardiovascular diseases, but the researchers say it does suggest that there is a link between the two.
“If you are overweight or obese, there’s a higher chance that you’re going to develop a cardiovascular disease or diabetes.
And if you have an unhealthy diet, it’s not going to prevent that from happening,” Zucman said.
