Cutting down on the fat levels in your diet without reducing your food intake could lead to minimal weight loss as well as reduce the levels of "bad" LDL cholesterol, a new study by researchers at University of East Anglia reveals.

The researchers analyzed more than 33 independent studies involving more than 73,500 men, women and children in North America, Europe and New Zealand.

The participants' weight and waist were measured at the start of the study and six months later and the researchers found that those who reduced their fat content in their diet lost an average of 0.6 kg while their waist circumference tightened by 0.5 cm.

"I think people might be surprised that you can lose weight without intending to. These are not people on diets, these are not people trying to cut down on their calorie intake or their energy intake but they're people who've just been sensible about their eating and actually they've lost weight - and that weight has been maintained for many years", lead researcher Lee Hooper said.
