One of the secrets to losing weight may be to cut down on red meat.

That's the finding of European study that found eating red meat was linked with weight gain, even in people taking in the same number of calories.

The strongest association was found with processed meat such as sausages and ham. It suggests that high-protein diets may really not help dieter's in the long run.

The findings are published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
