An exercise routine was introduced halfway through the study.Results revealed that those in the vegetarian group lost nearly twice as much weight as those eating meat.The team, from the University of Navarra in Spain, found eating just 380g (13 ounces) less of meat a week – the equivalent of two large chicken breasts - is linked to a reduction in the risk of obesity of 43 per cent.Those who eat less meat also double their intake of fruit and vegetables, the research adds.Exclusively eating plant-based foods resulted in an average weight loss of 13.67lbs (6.2kg), compared to 7.05lbs (3.2kg) among those following a typical diabetes eating plan.The findings also demonstrated the vegetarian group lost more fat around and inside their muscles.Lead author Dr Hana Kahleova from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine in Washington DC, said: 'A diet built around plants is naturally rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals, which leaves us feeling energized and refreshed instead of hungry and fatigued.'Part of the reason a vegetarian diet works so well for many people is because it's easy to stick to.'Eating one or two meat-free meals a week halves the risk of becoming obese, research suggested last month.
