News that Vexes

It's so tiresome to read 'new studies' that reveal Smoking, Stress or Obesity are Bad for you. Yet these studies appear all the time. It's time to take back the newswire from so-called Scientists!

Cutting calories, portion sizes may really work:

Shockingly, if you eat less, you gain less weight. This may be old news to you, savvy reader of News That Vexes. Also, if you eat foods that are lower in fat, you will gain less weight. BUT, did you know that if you eat less food and eat lower calorie foods, you will lose weight?

"women took in the fewest calories when they practiced both, the study found."

WOW! Plus this article is also chock-full of incredible facts like:

A pound of broccoli, for instance, has far fewer calories than a pound of chocolate.

Of course, all this research will have to be repeated, since only women were studied. We're still completely in the dark about men!

Thanks, Dr. Barbara J. Rolls from Penn State!
