8. Exercise is essential for good health. But as to eating less junk? Well yes,

but why not simply eliminate junk food altogether, and switch to tasty, filling, and nutritious foods instead, eating as much as you want (within reason)?

Fresh fish, veggies, fruit and chicken, salads ... so much good stuff that is healthy and non-fattening.

If I have one complaint about the "Mediterranean Diet", it's that pasta used to be sold as an essential element to the diet, when in fact, it's fattening, as are most flour-based foods, such as bread, and add little to a balanced diet - other than simple carbs.

These days, I guess you don't see or hear many people tout the 'health benefits of pasta', even though it is an element of the Mediterranean Diet and the people who live around the Mediterranean.
