Question details

Fig. 2 Pooled weighted mean differences in weight reduction between vegetarian and non-vegetarian diets. Effects on estimated weight reduction

for each study depicted as solid squares; error bars indicate 95%CIs. The pooled estimate of −1.99 kg (95%CI, −2.72 to −1.25) of weight loss is

shown as the diamond.
