No Clear Winner Among Popular Diets, Analysis Finds
Date:9/3/2014

e said. "Weight loss happens when you consume [fewer calories] than you need. Increasing physical activity helps to lose that weight more steadily, but only if you do not compensate by eating more."

But while shedding pounds is healthy for obese people, it's not everything. "Our study looked only at weight loss," Johnston pointed out. "So we're not necessarily talking about what's best for your health."

Van Horn agreed. "Good health is more than weight loss or weight control," she said.

People need to eat a variety of foods -- including fruits, vegetables, fiber-rich grains, lean proteins and unsaturated fats (from sources like vegetable oil, fatty fish and nuts) -- to get the nutrients that support good health, Van Horn said.
