1. Total body areal bone mineral density was measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry in eight women before and 10 weeks after a very-low-calorie diet [405 kcal (1701 kJ)/day]. 2. The mean weight loss of 15.6 kg was accompanied by a statistically significant reduction in total body bone mineral density from 1.205 +/- 0.056 to 1.175 +/- 0.058 g/cm2 (mean +/- SD, P less than 0.005). 3. After cessation of the diet, weight gradually increased and by 10 months was similar to baseline values… CONTINUE READING
