    go on a balanced diet

    Do native people say 'go on a balanced diet' as in:
    Try to go on a balanced diet with a small amount of healthy fats, ...

    And do native people say 'attend an exam' which means 'take/sit an exam'?

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: go on a balanced diet

    In the US, we say "eat a balanced diet" and we "take" exams.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
