Bioelectrical impedance analysis--part I: review of principles and methods.
The use of bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is widespread both in healthy subjects and patients, but suffers from a lack of standardized method and quality control procedures. BIA allows theExpand
Major types of dietary fat and risk of coronary heart disease: a pooled analysis of 11 cohort studies.
The associations suggest that replacing SFAs with PUFAs rather than MUFAs or carbohydrates prevents CHD over a wide range of intakes. Expand
Breastfeeding reduces postpartum weight retention.
Results suggest that, when combined with GWG values of approximately 12 kg, breastfeeding as recommended could eliminate weight retention by 6 mo postpartum in many women. Expand
Dietary fiber and risk of coronary heart disease: a pooled analysis of cohort studies.
Consumption of dietary fiber from cereals and fruits is inversely associated with risk of coronary heart disease. Expand
Systematic review of clinical trials on dietary interventions to prevent excessive weight gain during pregnancy among normal weight, overweight and obese women
Dietary advice during pregnancy appears effective in decreasing total GWG and long-term postpartum weight retention, but so far there is limited evidence for further benefits on infant and maternal health. Expand
Intake of ruminant trans fatty acids and risk of coronary heart disease.
This study suggests that R-TFA intake is not associated with a higher risk of CHD among women, and whether R- T FA intake is even protective against CHDamong women cannot be concluded from this study. Expand
Antioxidant vitamins and coronary heart disease risk: a pooled analysis of 9 cohorts.
Dietary intake of antioxidant vitamins was only weakly related to a reduced CHD risk after adjustment for potential nondietary and dietary confounding factors, and the risk reductions at high vitamin E or carotenoid intakes appear small. Expand
Twin study of genetic and environmental influences on adult body size, shape, and composition
The findings suggest that adult body size, shape, and composition are highly heritable in both women and men, although a decreasing tendency is seen with advancing age. Expand
Food and drinking patterns as predictors of 6-year BMI-adjusted changes in waist circumference
It is concluded that very few food items and no food patterns seem to predict changes in WC, whereas high intakes of beer and spirits among women, and moderate to high tea intake among men, may promote gain in WC. Expand
Influence of Psychosocial Factors on Postpartum Weight Retention
Examination of the association between psychosocial factors during pregnancy and postpartum weight retention at 6 and 18 months found feeling distressed, depressed, or anxious during pregnancy was associated with higher PPWR as was personal and economical burdens. Expand
