Fat chances

Scientists report that being obese wrecks your quality of life as much as having cancer.

Meanwhile, new research suggests that the low carbohydrate diets are just another scam. People who watched what they ate in order to follow a low-carb diet tended to end up eating fewer calories, and that’s the real reason why they lost weight.

So, once again it turns out that the way to lose weight is to eat less and exercise more. Fancy that.
