Holy cow - if you are looking to lose weight there are literally tons of books with different ways to shed pounds. So which one is best? Starting a diet is a lot like choosing a religion. You want the right one that isn't a waste of time, that is best for you and you feel is right, and also still let's you live a normal life.

So which diet works better - low carb or low fat? Well - good news fat or carb lovers. According to science they both work the same! Basically any weight loss diet works as long as you actually stick to it and don't cheat too much or quit after a short amount of time...again a lot like religion. This doesn't mean you can eat whatever you want or do anything you want and you'll lose weight and be happy. The study only focused on the weight loss and not the health risks or benefits of each diet.
