In the article titled “Dietary Pattern and Macronutrients Profile on the Variation of Inflammatory Biomarkers: Scientific Update” [1], a study by Silver et al. [2] was cited in Section 3.2 and it was stated that subjects following a balanced high-fat diet saw “an average reduction of 2.5 kg of body fat, an average increase of 2.5 kg of lean mass.” This was not accurate as Silver et al. reported a decrease in Total Lean Mass over the course of their intervention and changes in relative body composition (%). The real change was a decrease in fat mass (−2.5 ± 2.1 %) to increase in relative lean body mass (+2.5 ± 2.1 %).
