A Low-Fat Diet Spurs Weight Loss
Swapping fatty foods for lower-fat versions seems to whittle away excess weight. An analysis of studies involving more than 73,500 people found that a low-fat diet can help people lose about 3½ pounds, trim their waistlines, and see small but significant improvements in their cholesterol and blood pressure levels. What’s more, participants used no other weight-loss tactics to drop pounds.
