Yeah, no shit - any kind of diet with a caloric deficit is going to make you lose weight - but your macronutrient ratios are going to determine if you lose good or bad weight. Likewise, any diet with a caloric excess is going to make you gain weight - again, your macronutrient ratios will decide if you put on lean body mass or body fat. Not caring about your macros and just eating tons of carbs and fat with little protein is going to ensure you turn into a pasty fatass real quick. Even if you do eat lots of protein, but with an inconsistent diet, is going to guarantee inconsistent results. If we're going to play the internet article game, I recommend you research the work of Dr. John Berardi, an accomplished bodybuilder and powerlifter who has dedicated his entire life to the science of sports nutrition and exercise - not to mention he has a doctorate
on the topic.
