WEDNESDAY, June 25, 2014 (HealthDay News) — Eating lots of fruits and vegetables is often recommended as a way to lose weight, but doing so may not help you shed excess pounds, according to researchers.
They reviewed data from more than seven studies that examined how increased fruit and vegetable consumption affected weight loss.
“Across the board, all studies we reviewed showed a near-zero effect on weight loss,” Kathryn Kaiser, an instructor in the School of Public Health at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, said in a university news release.
