What you see in the first chart is a steep drop in weight within the first six months on the low-fat and low-carb diets. Then the weight slowly edges up and plateaus. At the two-year mark, the low-carb dieters look almost undistinguishable from the low-fat dieters: there’s only about a 4-pound difference in weight loss between the groups — a difference that's too small to have an impact on health.

This study doesn’t come in isolation. Just about every study comparing prescribed diets over a year shows the same thing: marginal differences among diets and weight losses that are significant at the beginning of the experiment, followed by pounds slowly creeping up and weight plateauing.

Well, to be safe, I would just recommend we take in the same amount of calories we burn up.  Eat less, or burn more is the way to lose weight. It's really pretty simple. It's getting over all those good plates of bacon which gets us...

Bingo. Americans spend $Billions each year for fad diets and more... when losing weight is actually free. As you say, eat less than you burn and the weight comes off. But ... that takes will power ... and few have it. Sad commentary on us.
