BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Findings from observational studies in China show that increased dietary fat consumption might be a contributor to the developing obesity epidemic. However, some cohort studies suggest that carbohydrate intake, especially from white rice, is a risk factor for obesity, type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease in China. Our study aims to determine whether the traditional lower-fat, higher-carbohydrate Chinese or the Western higher-fat, lower-carbohydrate dietary…

Effects of dietary fat on gut microbiota and faecal metabolites, and their relationship with cardiometabolic risk factors: a 6-month randomised controlled-feeding trial
TLDR
Higher-fat consumption by healthy young adults whose diet is in a state of nutrition transition appeared to be associated with unfavourable changes in gut microbiota, faecal metabolomic profiles and plasma proinflammatory factors, which might confer adverse consequences for long-term health outcomes.
High-fat, low-carbohydrate diet was associated with unfavourable impact on colonic luminal microenvironment
We thank Ardalan et al for their interest and comments1 on our 6-month randomised controlled feeding trial, in which we have investigated the effects of dietary fat on gut microbiota and faecal
Effects of total fat intake on body fatness in adults.
TLDR
There is consistent high-quality evidence from RCTs that reducing total fat intake results in small reductions in body fatness; this was seen in almost all included studies and was highly resistant to sensitivity analyses (GRADE high-consistency evidence, not downgraded).
Nutrition transition and chronic diseases in China (1990–2019): industrially processed and animal calories rather than nutrients and total calories as potential determinants of the health impact – ADDENDUM
TLDR
The farther the Chinese population moved away from the 3Vs rule during the 1990-2019 period, the more the prevalence of chronic diseases increased, paralleling the exponential increase in IPF calorie intake.
Calorie restriction intervention induces enterotype-associated BMI loss in nonobese individuals
TLDR
It is pointed out that the individual variation of BMI loss after CR could be partially correlated with different microbial composition and highlights the potential application for microbiome stratification in personalized nutrition intervention.
Habitual animal fat consumption in shaping gut microbiota and microbial metabolites.
TLDR
A diet with higher animal-based fat consumption is likely to be associated with moderately unfavorable impacts on gut microbial diversity, community, and regulation of fecal SCFAs, which may influence the host cardiometabolic health in the long term among healthy Chinese adults whose diet is in a nutrition transition.
Macronutrients and Human Health for the 21st Century
TLDR
This Special Issue is calling for manuscripts from all disciplines to provide a broad-ranging discussion on macronutrients and health from personal, public and planetary perspectives.

TLDR
The changed landscape in obesity and dietary patterns suggests a need to reassess the dominant diet-heart paradigm and related dietary recommendations, ie, the strategy of replacing total and saturated fats with carbohydrates, which has a beneficial effect on IHD.
Dietary carbohydrate restriction in type 2 diabetes mellitus and metabolic syndrome: time for a critical appraisal
TLDR
The argument is made that a re-evaluation of the role of carbohydrate restriction, the historical and intuitive approach to the problem, may provide an alternative and possibly superior dietary strategy that improves glycemic control and reduces insulin fluctuations which are primary targets.
Trends in carbohydrate, fat, and protein intakes and association with energy intake in normal-weight, overweight, and obese individuals: 1971-2006.
TLDR
Energy intake and the prevalence of obesity have increased dramatically and dietary interventions should focus on decreasing energy intake and potentially by substituting protein for fat or carbohydrates.
Effects of a low-glycemic load vs low-fat diet in obese young adults: a randomized trial.
TLDR
Reducing glycemic load may be especially important to achieve weight loss among individuals with high insulin secretion, and a low-glycemic load diet has beneficial effects on high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations but not on low-density lipid cholesterol concentration.
Effects on blood pressure of reduced dietary sodium and the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet. DASH-Sodium Collaborative Research Group.
TLDR
The reduction of sodium intake to levels below the current recommendation of 100 mmol per day and the DASH diet both lower blood pressure substantially, with greater effects in combination than singly.
Effects on blood pressure of reduced dietary sodium and the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet
TLDR
The effect of different levels of dietary sodium, in conjunction with the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, which is rich in vegetables, fruits, and low-fat dairy products, in persons with and in those without hypertension is studied.
The effect of a plant-based low-carbohydrate ("Eco-Atkins") diet on body weight and blood lipid concentrations in hyperlipidemic subjects.
TLDR
A low-carb carbohydrate plant-based diet has lipid-lowering advantages over a high-carbohydrate, low-fat weight-loss diet in improving heart disease risk factors not seen with conventional low- fat diets with animal products.
Dietary and environmental correlates of obesity in a population study in China.
TLDR
An important emerging health problem: the increasing problem of obesity that has been observed in many lower-income countries during the last several decades is observed in China.
Prospective study of dietary carbohydrates, glycemic index, glycemic load, and incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus in middle-aged Chinese women.
TLDR
High intake of foods with a high glycemic index and glycemic load, especially rice, the main carbohydrate-contributing food in this population, may increase the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus in Chinese women.
Prospective study on nutrition transition in China.
TLDR
The results indicate that rapid changes in dietary pattern are associated with economic reforms in China and that child height and weight increased while undernutrition decreased and overweight increased.
