Dietary fat and body weight control.

High dietary fat consumption may increase the risk of weight gain and obesity.

This research work was carried out to determine the relationship between dietary fat and body weight control. Researchers examined data from the National Weight Control Registry database and evidence from several epidemiological, preclinical and controlled clinical studies. They discovered that high dietary fat consumption promoted weight gain, high energy intake, and positive energy and fat balance. Controlling fat intake was found to be key for long-term weight management. The results of this research work do not support the popular belief that obesity is associated with low dietary fat intake.
