OBJECTIVE Changes in eating habits may be influential in the ever-increasing rate of childhood obesity. Our aim was to determine whether those children who consume olive oil have a lower risk of weight gain compared with children who consume other oils. DESIGN AND METHODS The study included 18 girls and 74 boys, all aged 13-166 months. A survey was completed for each subject about eating habits and physical activity. A sample of subcutaneous adipose tissue was also obtained for cellular study…

Adipose Tissue Characteristics Related to Weight Z-Score in Childhood
TLDR
In childhood, the weight Z-score is related to adipocyte volume and adipose tissue gene expression, as well as the SCD-1 activity and normalized weight.
Energy intake, energy dispersion and body mass index interaction in adolescents
TLDR
In the current study, even though the total energy intake of adolescents was not above the requirements of their age group, the energy intake from fats was mostly higher than the rates recommended, which may result in obesity.
High adherence to a mediterranean diet at age 4 reduces overweight, obesity and abdominal obesity incidence in children at the age of 8
TLDR
A high adherence to Mediterranean Diet at the age of 4 is associated with a lower risk of developing overweight, obesity, and abdominal obesity at age 8, and if these results are confirmed by other studies, MD may be recommended to reduce the incidence of obesity at early ages.
Adherence to the Mediterranean Diet among School Children and Adolescents Living in Northern Italy and Unhealthy Food Behaviors Associated to Overweight
TLDR
Because the risk of overweight was associated with different components of the Mediterranean diet depending on ethnic origins, tailored nutritional programs remain a need.
Dietary, Lifestyle and Socio-Economic Correlates of Overweight, Obesity and Central Adiposity in Lebanese Children and Adolescents
TLDR
Multivariate logistic regression analyses showed that male gender, maternal employment, residence in the capital Beirut, sedentarity, and higher consumption of fast food and sugar sweetened beverages were associated with increased risk of obesity, overweight, and abdominal adiposity, while regular breakfast consumption, higher intakes of milk/dairies and added fats/oils were amongst the factors associated with decreased risk.
Does cooking with vegetable oils increase the risk of chronic diseases?: a systematic review
TLDR
The myth that frying foods is generally associated with a higher risk of CVD is not supported by the available evidence; virgin olive oil significantly reduces the risk ofCVD clinical events, based on the results of a large randomised trial.
Impact of diet on cardiometabolic health in children and adolescents
TLDR
Current epidemiological and experimental evidence on the impact of nutrients, foods, and dietary pattern on cardiometabolic health in children and adolescents is summarized through the electronic databases PubMed, Cochrane Library, and Medline.

TLDR
It is presented the opinion that reducing the impact of metabolic and inflammatory stressors may reduce the adverse health effects of obesity, and slow the progression towards MetS and CVD in adolescents.

Incidence of obesity is lower in persons who consume olive oil
TLDR
The increase in the prevalence of obesity in the free-living population is associated with the type of fatty acids in the diet, and that in persons who were not obese at baseline was greater in those who consumed sunflower oil.
Olive oil consumption and weight change: The SUN prospective cohort study
TLDR
It is shown that a high amount of olive oil consumption is not associated with higher weight gain or a significantly higher risk of developing overweight or obesity in the context of the Mediterranean food pattern.
Intake and home use of olive oil or mixed oils in relation to healthy lifestyles in a Mediterranean population. Findings from the prospective Pizarra study
TLDR
Part of the discordance found in epidemiological studies between diet and health may be due to the handling of oils during food preparation, and the intake of olive oil is associated with other healthy habits.
Adherence to the traditional mediterranean diet is inversely associated with body mass index and obesity in a spanish population.
TLDR
It is suggested that the traditional Mediterranean dietary pattern is inversely associated with BMI and obesity, and may be useful in the development of dietary approaches for dietary counseling and the prevention of obesity.
Patterns of weight change and their relation to diet in a cohort of healthy women.
TLDR
In a population of free-living women, prior weight loss and younger age are far stronger predictors of subsequent weight gain than are the qualitative aspects of diet.
Obesity and the metabolic syndrome in Mediterranean countries: a hypothesis related to olive oil.
TLDR
If people have a favorable, genetically conditioned SCD1 activity that will let them confront the new situation or else have some other compensatory mechanism, such as being keen on sport, etc, then they can prevent the appearance of some of the complications associated with the metabolic syndrome.
Olive oil and the Mediterranean diet: beyond the rhetoric
TLDR
Olive oil is a key contributor to the healthy aspects attributed to the Mediterranean diet, and as such, nutritional objectives in Mediterranean countries should address reducing saturated fats, without modifying quantities of olive oil.
A MUFA-Rich Diet Improves Posprandial Glucose, Lipid and GLP-1 Responses in Insulin-Resistant Subjects
TLDR
Weight maintenance with a MUFA-rich diet improves HOMA-ir and fasting proinsulin levels in insulin-resistant subjects and improves insulin sensitivity, as indicated by lower homeostasis model analysis-insulin resistance.
Fatty acid composition as an early determinant of childhood obesity
TLDR
Changes over decades in the fatty acid composition of dietary fats observed in breast milk and formula milk, i.e. a high increase in LA with slight or no change in LNA, may be responsible for the dramatic increase in the prevalence of childhood overweight and obesity.
