Low-Fat, Low-Calorie Foods Do Help Keep The Weight Off, Study Finds

August 25, 2009: 11:38 AM EST
Food and beverage manufacturers should be encouraged by the results of a new study showing that people who had shed pounds were able to maintain the loss by eating low-fat foods and artificially-sweetened drinks. The study, published in a peer-reviewed journal, compared normal weight people with weight-loss maintainers who had dropped at least 10 percent of their flab and kept it off for at least 12 years. Both groups had similar body mass indexes. “Ways to promote the use of fat-modified foods and artificial sweeteners merits further research,” one of the researchers said.
