This does not mean, however, that reducing fat never leads to weight loss, but that low-fat diets only led to greater weight loss when compared to a regular diet.

"There is no good evidence to recommend low-fat diets," he said the lead author of the research, Dr. Deirdre Tobias of Harvard Medical School in Boston.
