In brief: Weight loss anytime

Losing weight has nothing to do with what you eat, a recent study showed.
If you follow a diet that lowers your consumption of calories, you will lose weight whether it is high fat or low fat, high protein or low carb. It's basic math: eat less, weigh less. www.ncbi.nlm. Gov/pmc/articles/pmc2763382/.
