Eating Fewer Animal Products Leads to Weight Loss

A recent medical study revealed that successful long-term weight loss was attributed to decreased meat, cheese, and sweets consumption.

A new study from The Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics found that long-term weight loss was associated with smaller amounts of animal products and sugar. Researchers studied 481 overweight and obese postmenopausal women from the Women on the Move through Activity and Nutrition Study in Pennsylvania, looking for parallels in their eating behaviors and weight changes over four years. At 48 months, it was found that those women who consumed fewer desserts and sugar-sweetened beverages as well as decreased their intake of meat and cheese while increasing fiber-rich foods such as fruits and vegetables experienced the most long-term weight loss.
