Amazing that they had to study 38,000 men and women aged 20 to 97 to confirm this, they found that "fish-eaters, vegetarians and especially vegans had lower Body Mass Index than meat-eaters." What were the greatest contributors to the meat-eaters' heaviness? "High protein and low fibre intakes," according to Nature. (via Vegan Porn) But at least those who are overdoing the meat are cutting back on the dreaded carbs, right? Oh, except that "low-carb dieters eat too many carbs!" Yes, "adults who are reducing their carb intakes are still eating about 128 grams of refined carbohydrates a day, the study found. That compares with the estimated 20 to 50 grams of carbs per day recommended by some low-carb diets." Hmmm, so what do you get when you eat not enoug fiber, too much protein, and too many carbs? Fat, it would seem.
