◇TRANSCRIPT

AZUZ: 

One rule of thumb for losing weight is the 80/20 rule, that 80 percent of it is determined, 20 percent is exercise. In our continuing health series with Dr. Sanjay Gupta, we're looking at diet suggestions for living a longer life.

DR. SANJAY GUPTA, CNN CHIEF MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT: 

People always talk about wanting to get healthy and talking about diet and exercise. That's exactly what you should be talking about.

But here's the little secret: diet is far more important than exercise when it comes to actually accomplishing those things.

If you want to look at what these diets that doctors like have in common, there are really three basic things you need to look for. 

They got to have a lot more vegetables. They are going to cut way back on sugars. And they are also going to be cut back on grains, particularly refined grains. 

There are people who will say look, if you want to completely rid your risk of heart disease, perhaps you shouldn't eat meat at all. Just don't eat any red meat in particular. And those are people who say look, that's going to hard for me to do, by cutting back and when you do eat it, making sure it's no bigger than the size of your palm.

I love this thing that they do in Japan. And the phrase is called hara hachi bu. What it basically means is that you push the plate away when you are about 80 percent full. The point is, you never stuff yourself.

Here's a little tidbit when it comes to diet: it can improve your health and it can increase your longevity, helping you live to 100.
