Sorry, gambon. You are wrong there. Even cooked food provides enough liquid. Do a little more reading. You'll find out.
Things are not as complicated as medical science makes them out to be.
Exercise is recommended only to prevent inertia. Our "modern" idea of exercise is way off what is really healthy though.

Fresh fruits and vegetables are more expensive, obviously.
Not sure if it's area specific, but from my experience, whole fresh produce is much cheaper than prepared garbage.
They are less expensive and more plentiful in the summer months, so I tend to buy and eat more of them.
I will concede that produce in season locally is cheaper than produce not in season that is shipped from areas grown in season there. Yet one would readily assume that such a thing is a given, unless I'm the only one to assume such?
I eat other things too, of course, but it would be so great to have such a nice variety year round.
You can most often buy canned or frozen, with frozen usually being the best option if not buying fresh, for around a dollar. It's quiet easy to buy a variety of produce any time of the year. Sometimes, frozen is actually better than fresh as they are picked when they are ripe compare to "fresh" produce pick prior to being ripe which ripens during the shipping process.
ETA: The avocados from Mexico are outstanding this year.
My wife eats those.. Never liked them myself. :/
