ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study which explored the associations between fruit and vegetable intake and weight gain (WG) over a 10-year period in an adult Mediterranean population. A 10-year follow study with healthy participants aged 15-80 years at baseline in 1994 was performed. It revealed that the average WG over the study period was 3.41. The study noted that dietary patterns associated with a high intake of fruits and vegetables in Mediterranean populations may reduce long-term risk of subsequent WG and obesity in adults.
