Carbs, fat, DNA? Weight loss is finicky, new study shows
FILE - This Sept. 15, 2011, file photo shows the nutrition label on a can of soda in Philadelphia. A precision nutrition weight loss approach didn't hold up in a study testing low fat versus low carb depending on dieters' genetic or metabolic makeup. Adults in the new study lost 13 pounds on average, regardless of diet, genes and insulin levels. What seemed to make a difference was healthful eating.

Food box idea draws criticism from Democrats, advocates
In this Feb. 13, 2018, photo, budget director Mick Mulvaney testifies before the Senate Budget Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington.
