A new study published in PLOS ONE says there’s evidence to suggest that the fruit and vegetable group is an unhealthy diet.
It also says the results are largely based on a single study, which is a bit of a red flag.
In the study, researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill examined data from more than 1.3 million adults in the United States.
They were looking at what foods people were eating and the amount of sugar, fat and salt they consumed.
They found that people in the fruit, vegetable and legume group were eating a lot more sugar, and more fat and sodium than people in other groups.
The fruit group also consumed more salt and sodium per unit of food.
Those eating the fruit group ate nearly twice as much salt and more than double as much sodium as those eating the vegetable and fruit group, the researchers found.
The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health and the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences.
The researchers didn’t specify how much sugar, salt and fat they found, but the authors wrote that “the fruit and legumes group tended to consume more than half the total amount of fat and total sodium per serving compared with the other groups.”
The fruit and the vegetable group also had higher intakes of total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol than did the legumes and the fruit groups, but this difference was not statistically significant, the study authors wrote.
They also found that the total cholesterol level in the fruits and vegetables group was higher than in the legume and fruit groups.
So, if the researchers’ conclusion that people eating fruit and vegetables are eating a “high fat, high sugar, high salt diet” holds up, it suggests that eating fruits and veggies is actually unhealthy, the authors said.
That’s probably not good news for many people, especially those who don’t eat fruit or vegetables.
According to the National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference, the average American consumes about 14 teaspoons of sugar per day.
The average American also drinks more than twice as many calories as the average person of any other group.
This study found that Americans who ate more fruit and veggies were eating more calories, but it didn’t provide data on how much of that was sugar or salt or fat.
But other research has found that eating more fruits and veg can lower blood pressure and lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.
It’s also good news that people who eat a lot of fruit and a lot less vegetables and leguminous vegetables have lower rates of diabetes and heart disease.
But some people who consume fruits and a little less vegetables may be doing so because they’re trying to lose weight.
People who eat more fruit, vegetables and a few other vegetables have fewer health risks, said Susan Oster, a registered dietitian and a clinical nutritionist in Boston.
But even with the limited data available, it’s important to make sure people follow the proper dietary advice and eat a variety of foods, she said.
If you want to lose pounds, you need fruits and whole grains, vegetables, legumes, nuts, beans and nuts, Oster said.
And if you’re going to be trying to cut back on sugar and salt and carbs, you want lots of fresh fruit, she added.
