Body composition, dietary composition, and components of metabolic syndrome in overweight and obese adults after a 12-week trial on dietary treatments focused on portion control, energy density, or
Different dietary approaches based on portion control, low energy density, or low glycemic index produced similar, significant short-term improvements in body composition, diet compositin, and MetS components in overweight and obese adults undergoing weekly weight loss meetings.
Moderate Exercise-Induced Energy Expenditure Does Not Alter Leptin Levels in Sedentary Obese Men
Preliminary data suggest that a bout of acute exercise of moderate intensity and duration does not affect leptin concentration, and it is possible that a higher level of EE is required to elicit substantial changes.
Is bran efficacious in irritable bowel syndrome? A double blind placebo controlled crossover study.
The data suggest that in irritable bowel syndrome, especially that associated with abdominal pain, the beneficial effects of bran are due to a placebo response which is independent of an increase in stool weight.
The effect of high-fructose corn syrup consumption on triglycerides and uric acid.
This review highlights the fact that limited data are available about the metabolic effects of HFCS compared with other caloric sweeteners, and suggests that H FCS yields similar metabolic responses to other caloricsweeteners such as sucrose.
The Effects of Fructose-Containing Sugars on Weight, Body Composition and Cardiometabolic Risk Factors When Consumed at up to the 90th Percentile Population Consumption Level for Fructose
The data suggest that, when consumed as part of a normal diet, common fructose-containing sugars do not raise blood pressure, even when consumed at the 90th percentile population consumption level for fructose; changes in the lipid profile are mixed, but modest.
Consumption of sucrose and high-fructose corn syrup does not increase liver fat or ectopic fat deposition in muscles.
The data suggest that when fructose is consumed as part of a typical diet in normally consumed sweeteners, such as sucrose or HFCS, ectopic fat storage in the liver or muscles is not promoted.
The effects of four hypocaloric diets containing different levels of sucrose or high fructose corn syrup on weight loss and related parameters
Similar decreases in weight and indices of adiposity are observed when overweight or obese individuals are fed hypocaloric diets containing levels of sucrose or high fructose corn syrup typically consumed by adults in the United States.
