SHED-IT Trial Reveals Weight Loss Keys for Men

More proof (as if it were needed) that it is all about the Calories - nothing more, nothing less.
New research from the Self-Help, Exercise, and Diet Using Information Technology (SHED-IT) men-only weight loss trial was presented here at the American College of Sports Medicine 57th Annual Meeting. The findings show that men who are most successful at losing weight reduce their portion size and limit fat intake but don't necessarily follow dietary recommendations, the SHED-IT investigators reported...

One of the most valuable lessons from this study is the recognition that none of the men increased their fruit and vegetable intake to meet the guidelines, and fiber intake remained well below recommended levels throughout the intervention, Dr. Callister said.

"This is valuable because it contrasts the diet recommendations with what actually works in adult men," said Janet Whatley Blum, ScD, professor at the University of Southern Maine, Portland. "It will help us sort the 'signal from the noise.' We can more effectively arrange the laundry list of suggestions that is given to overwhelmed patients."
There is no need for a "laundry list of suggestions."

Just fewer Calories than out.
