Healthy Eating Helps Reverse Metabolic Syndrome

People with metabolic syndrome, a cluster of risk factors for heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes, have a better chance of reversing it if they stick to a healthy diet.

While this may seem obvious, the findings are important because they show it's your dietary pattern, not just individual components of your diet, that matters.

According to Reuters:

“[Researchers] studied 339 people with metabolic syndrome ... After five years, nearly half no longer had the metabolic syndrome. People who adhered the most closely to [a set of nutritional guidelines], the researchers found, were nearly twice as likely to have reversed their metabolic syndrome.”
