    Don't Go Super Low---Opting for a lower fat diet can help improve your overall health, but don't go too low. A diet with a moderate amount of fat in it may be best for health.

The caveat: the moderate-fat dieters stuck to unsaturated forms of fat.

The heart benefits depended on how long, not on how hard, they exercised.
