So the punch-line is you'll still get fat if you don't eat properly but you won't get as fat. Brilliant! Maybe they should fund a study to determine if eating a box of KrispyKremes everyday might effect one's body fat.

"Women who did the weight-training for two years had only a 7 percent increase in intra-abdominal fat, compared to a 21 percent increase in the group given exercise advice."
