Significantly reducing the amount of fat consumed in one's diet can sometimes result in weight loss. However, many nutrition experts no longer recommend this practice, because fat has a number of nutritional benefits: it promotes healthy skin and absorption of vitamins, and it inhibits hunger by increasing the amount of time one feels a sense of satiety after eating a meal.

If the above statements are true, which of the following statements is most strongly supported by them?


a) Increasing the amount of vitamins absorbed in one's body can lead to weight gain.


b) Low-fat diets lead to malnutrition and illness.


c) Eating a low-fat diet is the best way to lose a significant amount of weight.


d) Modern nutritional science considers dietary fat the most important part of one's diet.


e) Reducing one's consumption of fat can lead to weight gain by causing one to feel hungry and eat again sooner than one would have otherwise.

As per me the answer would be option E.

Yupp should be E. No other statements can be inferred / supported.

I agree that E seems to be the best choice here :-)
