Mediterranean diet high in healthy fat does not lead to weight gain

A Mediterranean diet which is rich in vegetal fats (extra virgin olive oils, dried fruit and nuts, etc.) does not mean it comes with weight gain if compared to a low-fat diet, according to a study published in the medical journal The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology. This work suggests that lots of current guidelines on health giving advice on reducing fat and calories give a wrong idea of the effects of consuming Mediterranean diet fats, a diet with well known health benefits.
