Here's a great example of Silly Season media coverage. This article in USA Today is utterly confusing. The headline shouts that LOW protein promotes weight gain, while the body of the article says that those who ate MORE protein while overfeeding themselves gained more weight. The recommendations at the end make no sense whatsoever and the whole article is based on a single small study. Dieters are so overwhelmed with this kind of pseudo info that they don't know what to do next. Best advice: ignore this stuff.
