Carbs, fat, DNA? Weight loss is finicky, new study shows

A precision nutrition weight loss approach didn’t hold up in a study testing low fat versus low carb depending on dieters’ genetic or metabolic makeup. Adults in the new study lost 13 pounds on average, regardless of diet, genes and insulin levels. What seemed to make a difference was healthful eating. Participants who consumed the fewest processed foods, sugary drinks and unhealthy fats lost the most weight. The study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
