But eat­ing steak and ba­con for weight loss? Not so fast. Although most peo­ple ini­tially lose weight on a high­pro­tein, low-carb diet, this style of eat­ing can ac­tu­ally cause weight gain in the long term, ac­cord­ing to Span­ish re­searchers. Their study find­ings showed that those who fol­low di­ets high in an­i­mal pro­tein have a 90 per­cent greater risk of gain­ing more than 10 per­cent of their body­weight over time than those who don’t go heavy on the meat.
