Low-carb or low-fat for weight loss? Health writers get it wrong (again!)

The BBC announced that low-fat diets are better than cutting carbs for weight loss.

But the Daily Mail wrote: low-carb is best for weight loss. The opposite!

When I dug into these clashing news articles, I noticed they were talking about the same scientific study… Confused?

Well, I was. How is it possible that the journalists concluded the opposite by looking at the same study?
