Meat makes you gain weight?

This fascinating study shows that meat eaters tend to gain more weight over time. Researchers from Imperial College London found that avid meat eaters gained more weight over 5 years than those who ate less meat but the same amount of calories. Even more interestingly, when the researchers looked at different types of meat, they found the strongest association with weight gain was poultry, followed by processed meats and red meat.

What do you all think of this? The full study can be found here.
