Weight Loss May Simply Be A Matter Of Cutting Fat From The Diet

December 6, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
A systematic review of the results of 33 randomized, controlled trials in North America, Europe and New Zealand discovered that eating less fat significantly reduces body weight, body mass index and waist circumference. The trials, involving 73,589 people of all ages and sexes, suggests that simply exchanging fatty foods for lower fat alternatives can help people lose as much as 3.5 pounds, while reducing blood pressure and cholesterol levels. The British researchers recommended consuming low fat milk and yogurt, less butter and cheese, and removing fat from meat. “Most importantly,” they said, “have fruit instead of fatty snacks like biscuits, cake and crisps.”
