Dieters have long tried to crack the weight loss code, trying everything from counting fat grams to cutting out all carbohydrates. But as nutritionist Daryl Gioffre recently pointed out, the human body is fairly complex, which means that there are many weight loss tips that simply don’t work.

One misconception Gioffre recently overturned is the fat avoidance fad that is now a thing of the past. In actuality, Gioffre says, a small amount of fat each day can actually help with weight loss, especially if it’s a healthy form of fat. She recommends seven to ten portions of good fats like almonds, macadamia nuts, and avocados each day, since good fats can increase metabolism and stave off the urge to eat.

If you haven’t yet mastered the fine art of walking and chewing gum at the same time, you may have an incentive. A new study has linked the multitasking activity to increased weight loss. The research follows a previous study that found that gum chewing while walking increases a person’s heart rate.

The results were especially notable among males over the age of 40, showing an average of two calories per minute extra burned while chewing gum and walking. Women of all age groups showed less significant calorie-burning differences. The 46 participants were between the ages of 21 and 69 and were asked to walk normally while chewing gum. For two intervals of 15 minutes each, some of the volunteers walked, going through two pallets of chewing gum. Other volunteers walked while drinking water mixed with powder had the same ingredients as the gum.

Want to Lose Weight? Eat More Cheese

Cheese is one of the first things people cut when they start a weight-loss program. But although the food is high in calories, a new study suggests that dairy could actually help with weight loss and overall health.

The study, which was conducted in Ireland, reviewed 1,500 adults, noting their dairy consumption and comparing it to their health. Study participants kept a food diary in which they recorded everything they ate over the course of four days. After the fact, researchers checked their cholesterol levels and similar metabolic health problems.
