Diet study

Ac­cord­ing to new re­search, peo­ple who fol­low a veg­e­tar­ian diet lose weight more quickly than those who just count calo­ries. The six-month study found that the veg­e­tar­ian group lost an av­er­age of 6.2kg com­pared with 3.2kg in the con­ven­tional group. While both di­ets re­duced sub­cu­ta­neous fat (fat un­der the skin), the veg­e­tar­ian diet was more ef­fec­tive for re­duc­ing mus­cu­lar fat, lead­ing to im­proved me­tab­o­lism.
