Trying to get rid of that spare tire around your waist? You may want to eliminate meat from your diet and see the different it makes. Research shows that it will make a difference. A study published in 2009 revealed the positive relationship between meat consumption, BMI, waist size and obesity. This evidence contradicts the advertised benefits of fad diets like Atkins, which has actually proven to be ineffective after 6 months. There’s a saying: the fat you eat is the fat you wear. Animal-derived food products are high in fat, so it defies logic to expect its consumption can lead to healthy weight management. The laws of cause and effect are undeniable in this case.
