Who has the slimmest waist? Meat-eaters, fish-eaters, vegetarians, or vegans?

According to a new study, vegans do.

Vegans are vegetarians who not only forego eating meat, fish, or fowl but also all foods derived from animals. However, the reason vegans tend to be slimmer may lie in what they do eat: fiber. Lots of it. And that’s a habit you can easily duplicate. Fiber makes you feel full longer, and it seems to inhibit fat absorption. Broccoli pizza on whole-wheat crust, anyone?
