men with metabolic syndrome can lower their risk for disease by following a healthy diet -- even if they don't lose weight.

a study of nineteen men with the condition found those who followed a mediterranean diet experienced a decrease in levels of bad cholesterol and a protein involved in fat metabolism, regardless of their weight.

the men had also been studied when they ate a north american style diet full of fat, carbohydrates, sugar and red meat.

metabolic syndrome refers to three or more significant risk factors for heart disease and stroke, like obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides and high blood sugar.
