Have you ever wondered if you could lose more weight on a diet with less fat versus a diet with less calories?  Some diets claim you can lose weight by eating less fat and eating as much as you want.  You may lose weight, but the results may be due to a decreased number of calories anyway.  After all, fat has 9 calories per gram versus carbohydrate and protein that have 4 calories per gram.  However, cutting calories without paying attention to fat may increase risk of cardiovascular disease. 

Research has shown that cutting fat and calories will help you lose more.  A study of men and women at least 20% overweight were assigned to either a “low fat” group or a “low calorie” group.  After 16 to 20 weeks, the low calorie group lost an average of 18 pounds (women) and 26 pounds (men).  The low fat group lost an average of 9 pounds (women) and 18 pounds (men).  Diet Center programs are both low fat and low calorie.  No wonder so many people have had weight loss success!
