Is Low Fat Diet the Best Way to Lose weight?

A study published in New England Journal of Medicine that followed 300 moderately obese persons revealed the following results:

* People on Low-fat diet only lost 6.5 pounds. They have increased fasting glucose levels, high levels of which are a sign of diabetes

* People on Low-carb diet lost 10 pounds. They have increased levels of good cholesterol and down levels of atherosclerosis-causing triglycerides

* People on Mediterranian diet lost 10.3 pounds. They have a decresed fasting glucose level

Again, every individual should seek the one plan that is convenient to him and fits his needs the best.
