Chart reveals it is impossible to sustain lifestyle of low calories

The Daily Mail reports:
If you ever needed proof that fad diets don't work, this is it.

A new study has mapped out two very different diets - low-fat and low-carb - over a two-year period.

Analyzing dozens of studies over the past few years, the researchers tracked dieters' body weight in one graph, and their energy intake (i.e. calories consumed) in another.

The figures, published in The Lancet, showed barely any difference between the two diets, and an almost unanimous bounce back to the dieters' original weight.

Check out those charts in the article.
