Low-calorie diets affect men's and women's bodies differently, study shows

Health
Men's bodies may respond better to low-calorie diets than women's, a new study showed. A study in Denmark recruited more than 2,000 people who had pre-diabetes -- meaning high blood sugar, but not yet diabetes -- to look at how low-calorie diets worked for them.
