BOSTON (CBS) – There are so many diets out there and many can be hard to follow, but local researchers have found a simple way to lose weight without all of the fuss. Dr. Mallika Marshall tells us about a new diet that gets results.

Participants were told to load up on legumes, nuts, seeds, whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and they didn’t have to restrict where their other calories came from.
