Recently there has been much debate around the subject of fat. Some argue that fat makes you fat and you should avoid it at all cost.

She said ‘The weight reduction that we found when people ate less fat was remarkably consistent – we saw it in almost every trial. Those who cut down more on fat, lost more weight. Full and original article here.
