“If you don’t eat right, your body will get fat.”
– Mark Sisson, former CEO of American Express, according to the Washington Post.
The New York Times Magazine published a story in March on the new study, which found that the average man’s waist circumference fell by one inch between 2000 and 2010.
The average woman’s waist increased by an inch.
The New York Daily News reported that the researchers looked at people who ate more than the recommended daily amount of protein and fats.
“The body has an internal clock that tells you when it’s time to get out of bed and it also tells you what you need to eat in order to stay in shape,” the study’s lead researcher, Professor James Gilligan, told the paper.
“The results are clear: eating a lot of fat is bad for your body and you’re better off if you avoid eating a ton of carbs, even if it means limiting calories.”
You’re going to get sick, so you’re going a long way to lose weight if you’re eating lots of fat,” he added.
A recent study by the University of California, Irvine, found that eating a healthy diet was associated with lower rates of diabetes and cardiovascular disease in men and women.
Researchers said the study was the first to show that eating more vegetables, fruit and lean protein was associated not only with healthier weight, but also lower levels of obesity and cardiovascular health risk.
The study is published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
