A DASH (dietary approaches to stop hypertension) dietary pattern rich in fruits and vegetables and low-fat dairy products with increased dietary protein provided primarily from plant protein sources decreases blood pressure. No studies, however, have evaluated the effects of a DASH-like diet with increased dietary protein from lean beef on blood pressure(More)
BACKGROUND A Step I diet with lean beef compared with lean white meat both decrease LDL cholesterol. To our knowledge, no studies have evaluated a low-saturated fatty acid (SFA) (<7% calories) diet that contains lean beef. OBJECTIVE We studied the effect on LDL cholesterol of cholesterol-lowering diets with varying amounts of lean beef [ie, Dietary(More)
BACKGROUND Food-based dietary patterns emphasizing plant protein that were evaluated in the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) and OmniHeart trials are recommended for the treatment of metabolic syndrome (MetS). However, the contribution of plant protein to total protein in these diets is proportionally less than that of animal protein. (More)
A regiocontrolled synthesis of 3,4-disubstituted pyrrole-2-carboxaldehydes was completed in two steps from acyclic starting materials. A Barton-Zard pyrrole synthesis between N-methoxy-N-methyl-2-isocyanoacetamide and alpha-nitroalkenes or beta-nitroacetates provided N-methoxy-N-methyl pyrrole-2-carboxamides (pyrrole Weinreb amides), which were converted(More)
This review summarizes intervention studies that evaluated the effects of lifestyle behaviors on high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) levels. Current diet and lifestyle recommendations beneficially affect HDL-C. Individual lifestyle interventions that increase HDL-C include: a healthful diet that is low (7-10% of calories) in saturated fat and(More)
Background: A Step I diet with lean beef compared with lean white meat both decrease LDL cholesterol. To our knowledge, no studies have evaluated a low–saturated fatty acid (SFA) (,7% calories) diet that contains lean beef. Objective: We studied the effect on LDL cholesterol of cholesterollowering diets with varying amounts of lean beef [ie, Dietary(More)
