Effect of short-term high dietary calcium intake on 24-h energy expenditure, fat oxidation, and fecal fat excretion
BACKGROUND:Observational studies have shown an inverse association between dietary calcium intake and body weight, and a causal relation is likely. However, the underlying mechanisms are notExpand
Effect of calcium from dairy and dietary supplements on faecal fat excretion: a meta‐analysis of randomized controlled trials
Observational studies have found that dietary calcium intake is inversely related to body weight and body fat mass. One explanatory mechanism is that dietary calcium increases faecal fat excretion.Expand
Effect of dairy calcium or supplementary calcium intake on postprandial fat metabolism, appetite, and subsequent energy intake.
BACKGROUND High calcium intake has been shown to increase fecal fat excretion. OBJECTIVE Our aim was to examine whether a high calcium intake from dairy products or from supplements affectsExpand
Dairy calcium intake modifies responsiveness of fat metabolism and blood lipids to a high-fat diet
Intervention studies have demonstrated that saturated fat increases total and LDL-cholesterol concentrations, and it is therefore recommended that the intake of high-fat dairy products be limited.Expand
Effect of dairy proteins on appetite, energy expenditure, body weight, and composition: a review of the evidence from controlled clinical trials.
Evidence supports that a high proportion of calories from protein increases weight loss and prevents weight (re)gain. Proteins are known to induce satiety, increase secretion of gastrointestinalExpand
Can bioactive foods affect obesity?
Many dietary factors or substances exert effects on the three components of energy balance, and one strategy for tackling weight gain could be to use the inherent properties of these substances.Expand
Dairy beverages and energy balance
High dairy intakes have been associated with lower rates of obesity in observational studies, but mechanisms to explain the association are lacking. A high intake of dairy protein reduces spontaneousExpand
Serum Levels of Human MIC-1/GDF15 Vary in a Diurnal Pattern, Do Not Display a Profile Suggestive of a Satiety Factor and Are Related to BMI
The TGF-b superfamily cytokine MIC-1/GDF15 circulates in the blood of healthy humans. Its levels rise substantially in cancer and other diseases and this may sometimes lead to development of anExpand
Calcium supplementation for 1 y does not reduce body weight or fat mass in young girls.
BACKGROUND Accumulating evidence from observational studies indicates that a high calcium intake may reduce body weight and body fat. However, few randomized trials have been conducted. OBJECTIVEExpand
Metabolomics investigation to shed light on cheese as a possible piece in the French paradox puzzle.
An NMR-based metabolomics approach was used to investigate the differentiation between subjects consuming cheese or milk and to elucidate the potential link to an effect on blood cholesterol level.Expand
