One study found that increased exercise did not offset the negative effects of a low-quality diet . A high-quality diet refers to at least five servings of fruit and vegetables per day, two servings of fish per week, and less red meat, especially processed meat. The study found that people who ate a high-quality diet and exercised a high level of exercise had a 17% lower risk of all deaths, a 19% lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease, and a 27% lower risk of death from certain cancers, compared to people who ate a low-quality diet and were inactive. The researchers recommend that people stick to a high-quality diet.
