We compare the effects of a moderate hypocaloric, high-protein diet and resistance training, using two different protein supplements, versus hypocaloric diet alone on body compositional changes in overweight police officers. [] Key Method A randomized, prospective 12-week study was performed comparing the changes in body composition produced by three different treatment modalities in three study groups. One group (n = 10) was placed on a nonlipogenic, hypocaloric diet alone (80% of predicted needs).

A High-Protein Diet With Resistance Exercise Training Improves Weight Loss and Body Composition in Overweight and Obese Patients With Type 2 Diabetes
An energy-restricted HP diet combined with RT achieved greater weight loss and more favorable changes in body composition, with a significant group effect for body weight, fat mass, and WC.
The effect of whey isolate and resistance training on strength, body composition, and plasma glutamine.
This study examined the effects of supplementation with two proteins, hydrolyzed whey isolate (WI) and casein (C), on strength, body composition, and plasma glutamine levels during a 10 wk, supervised resistance training program.
High-protein, low-fat, short-term diet results in less stress and fatigue than moderate-protein moderate-fat diet during weight loss in male weightlifters: a pilot study.
A HPLF diet during short-term weight loss may be more effective at mitigating mood disturbance, fatigue, diet dissatisfaction, and stress than a MPMF diet.
A Carbohydrate-Restricted Diet during Resistance Training Promotes More Favorable Changes in Body Composition and Markers of Health in Obese Women with and without Insulin Resistance
A carbohydrate-restricted diet promoted more favorable changes in weight loss, fat loss, and markers of health in obese women who initiated an exercise program compared with a diet higher in carbohydrate.
Effect of cysteine-rich whey protein (Immunocal®) supplementation in combination with resistance training on muscle strength and lean body mass in non-frail elderly subjects: A randomized, double-blind controlled study
Findings showed increases in muscle strength in both groups after resistance training, however, significant additional increases were observed in Muscle strength with the addition of a cysteine-rich whey protein (Immunocal®) versus casein.
A systematic review of dietary protein during caloric restriction in resistance trained lean athletes: a case for higher intakes.
Protein needs for energy-restricted resistance-trained athletes are likely 2.3-3.1g/kg of FFM scaled upwards with severity of caloric restriction and leanness, and recommendations for these athletes are provided.
Higher Total Protein Intake and Change in Total Protein Intake Affect Body Composition but Not Metabolic Syndrome Indexes in Middle-Aged Overweight and Obese Adults Who Perform Resistance and Aerobic Exercise for 36 Weeks.
In conjunction with exercise training, higher TPro promoted positive changes in BC but not in MetS indexes in overweight and obese middle-aged adults.
High-protein weight-loss diets: are they safe and do they work? A review of the experimental and epidemiologic data.
The effects of dietary protein on satiety, energy intake, thermogenesis, and weight loss, as well as its effect on a variety of health outcomes in adults, are summarized.
Studying a Possible Placebo Effect of an Imaginary Low-Calorie Diet
In this experiment, a possible placebo effect of a weight loss program on changes in body mass and fat tissue in overweight or obese people is studied and a placebo effect could partially explain the changes in the experimental group.
Dairy Products, Meat and Sports Performance
Although the effects of conjugated linoleic acid on body composition in athletes are not clear, some positive findings in untrained, obese individuals call for more studies, and more studies on the possible effects of whey protein and probiotic supplementation are warranted.


High protein vs high carbohydrate hypoenergetic diet for the treatment of obese hyperinsulinemic subjects
A low-carbohydrate (LC), HP hypoenergetic diet could be the diet composition of choice for a weight-reducing regimen in obese hyperinsulinemic subjects.
Randomized trial on protein vs carbohydrate in ad libitum fat reduced diet for the treatment of obesity
Replacement of some dietary carbohydrate by protein in an ad libitum fat-reduced diet, improves weight loss and increases the proportion of subjects achieving a clinically relevant weight loss.
Exercise-training enhances fat-free mass preservation during diet-induced weight loss: a meta-analytical finding.
Evidence that exercise training reduces the amount of body weight lost as fat-free mass during diet-induced weight loss is provided and sex differences do not seem to exist with respect to the composition of diet- induced weight loss.
Increased protein intake during the recovery phase after severe burns increases body weight gain and muscle function.
Increased protein intake by means of adding a protein hydrolysate increases the rate of restoration of body weight and muscle function in the recovery phase after severe burns.

Maintaining protein intake reduces the decrease in energy expenditure during energy restriction, and the decrease was significantly less on the high protein diet than on the two low protein diets.
Long-term exercise training with constant energy intake. 1: Effect on body composition and selected metabolic variables.
It is quite possible to lose fat while preserving fat-free mass through regular prolonged exercise of moderate intensity if energy intake is kept constant at baseline level, and the energy cost of submaximal cycling and walking exercises was reduced considerably.
Exercise and protein intake effects on urinary 3-methylhistidine excretion.
Findings for 3MH/(kg LBW X d) indicate that a weight lifting program was associated with increased 3MH excretions from adult males, an index of skeletal muscle catabolism, and trends of exercise- or protein intake-enhanced 3 MH excretion could be masked by data as 3MH)/g UCE X d if exercise or 3 X RDA protein intake can expand the body creatine pool independent of skeletal Muscle mass.
Effects of strength training on total and regional body composition in older men.
The effects of a 16-wk strength-training program on total and regional body composition were assessed by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and
Reduced rate of energy expenditure as a risk factor for body-weight gain.
It is concluded that a low rate of energy expenditure may contribute to the aggregation of obesity in families.
