    From reading that I get the impression what the media is reporting isn't exactly what they found.

    If I'm understanding things. They say your body burns more calories with the "bad" diet. Least with the "good" diet.

    They aren't saying Aikens burns more calories . They're saying your body burns the least calories with Aikens. Or more correctly they're saying your body slows down the most with an Aikens diet after having lost weight.

    If I understand it correctly it's the opposite. The decrease in Resting Energy Expenditure was greatest with the low-fat diet, meaning less calories were burned on that diet.

    I agree though that the reporting on this was confusing. When I heard about it on the radio it sounded like they were saying a diet is more effective when the calories come from healthy vs processed foods. But they actually seem to be saying you'd lose more weight eating calorie restricted Big Mac diet. I mean... if you lived long enough to see the results. :D

    That is a much better article you linked though. :)

    I don't think the study was about weight loss. It was about post weight loss maintenance.

    Not really surprising. There I have always said its possible to get where we want to be just by eating clean and not worrying about calories.
