Online Health Expert Medical News Flash: Consuming Excess Calories May Lead to Fat Gain Irrespective of Their Source.

Online Health Expert Medical News Report: In a study published in the Jan. 4, 2012 issue of JAMA (Journal of American Medical Association), involving 25 healthy participants which were divided into 3 groups getting a low-protein, high-protein, and a normal-protein diet with equal calories (all of them received extra 1000 calories), the researchers found that the total calorie intake, regardless of the nutritional source of calories, determines the amount of fat accumulation in their bodies.  

These findings suggest that the current Obesity epidemic may be worse than is currently understood as those with lower body weight may have undetected layers of fat that can harm their health.
