Effects of sucrose on resting metabolic rate, nitrogen balance, leucine turnover and oxidation during weight loss with low calorie diets.

Abstract

Our research has shown that 800 kcal/day sucrose diets, unlike pure protein diets, maintained resting metabolic rate (RMR) and triiodothyronine (T3) levels. Concern that thermogenesis from sucrose might reflect protein catabolism led to this study, in which 23 obese women were studied as inpatients for 2 weeks on diets (kcal = 50 percent of RMR) containing… (More)
