AUSTRALIA - Researchers in South Australia claim eating fresh lean pork can contribute to weight loss.

According to ABC, the study funded by Australian Pork Limited followed 140 obese people who substituted pork for other meats on a regular basis.

The University of South Australia's nutritional researcher Professor Peter Howe says over a six-month period, participants were asked to eat seven serves of pork a week.

He says research shows participants not only didn't put on weight; they actually lost weight.

"There was significant loss in men of abdominal fat which responded in a reduction in waist circumference of about two centimetres compared to the controlled group," she says.

"This is equivalent to pulling in your belt about one hole tighter."
