High-fat Mediterranean diet, not low-fat one, is how you lose weight

The Mediterranean diet is easy to find in the grocery store, contains nutrients that are known to enhance longevity and has other health benefits that are backed by peer-reviewed, scientific studies. Broccoli makes the list because it's one of nature's most nutrient-dense foods, with only 30 calories per cup. That means you get a ton of hunger-curbing fiber and polyphenols -- antioxidants that detoxify cell-damaging chemicals in your body -- with each serving.

The ‘Dirty Dozen’: Group lists produce with the most pesticides

Every year, the Environmental Working Group publishes its "<a href="http://www.ewg.org/foodnews/dirty_dozen_list.php" target="_blank">Dirty Dozen</a>" list, naming the fruits and vegetables that rank highest in pesticide residue. In 2016, strawberries took the number 1 spot on the "Dirty Dozen" list. The Environmental Working Group report uses testing data from the U.S. Agriculture Department and the Food and Drug Administration. Strawberries showed about 5.75 different pesticides per sample, compared to 1.74 pesticides per sample of all other produce.
