Purpose of ReviewThe purpose of this paper is to review the epidemiology of obesity and the most recent literature on popular fad diets and exercise regimens that are used for weight loss. The weight loss plans that will be discussed in this article include juicing or detoxification diets, intermittent fasting, the paleo diet, and high intensity training.Recent FindingsDespite the growing popularity of fad diets and exercise plans for weight loss, there are limited studies that actually suggest… 
Exercise in the management of obesity.
TLDR
Exercise constitutes an indispensable, yet often underestimated, tool in the management of obesity and has the potential to alleviate the health consequences of obesity, even in the absence of weight loss.
An analysis of weight loss efforts and expectations in a Canadian Cohort: A retrospective medical chart review
TLDR
Patients were close to their highest adult weight and had very large weight loss goals, similar to what is typically achieved only by surgical intervention, despite having already had several bouts of weight loss.
Effectiveness of high-intensity interval training for weight loss in adults with obesity: a randomised controlled non-inferiority trial
TLDR
In healthy adults with obesity, HIIT compared with MICT induced similar weight loss and cardiovascular risk factors improvement but resulted in a larger increase in cardiorespiratory fitness over a shorter period.
A Low-Protein High-Fat Diet Leads to Loss of Body Weight and White Adipose Tissue Weight via Enhancing Energy Expenditure in Mice
TLDR
The results indicated that an LPHF has potential for obesity treatment, while the physiological condition should be monitored during application.
Exploring the highs and lows of very low carbohydrate high fat diets on weight loss and diabetes- and cardiovascular disease-related risk markers: A systematic review.
TLDR
VLCHF and LF diets with moderate energy restriction demonstrate similar weight loss and improvements to BP to 3 months, but longer-term studies with high adherence are required to confirm the level of CVD-risk and potential harms.
Developing and implementing a new methodology to test the affordability of currently popular weight loss diet meal plans and healthy eating principles
Background Weight loss diets continue to rise in popularity; however, the associated costs are seldom reported. Certain weight loss diets may be unaffordable and differ from their traditional
Obesity and Male Reproduction; Placing the Western Diet in Context
TLDR
This review explores the practical application of Nutritional Geometry to study the effects of dietary macronutrient balance on male reproduction, including experimental considerations specific to studies of diet and reproductive physiology, and discusses the promising use of Nut nutritional Geometry in the development of evidence-based pre-conception nutritional guidance for men.
Self-Reported Nutritional Factors Are Associated with Weight Loss at 18 Months in a Self-Managed Commercial Program with Food Categorization System: Observational Study
TLDR
The results highlight the potential influence of nutrition knowledge and food choice in weight loss on a self-managed commercial program and found for the first time that in-the-moment inclination towards food even when just depicted is associated with long-term weight loss.
Combination of Treadmill Aerobic Exercise with Bifidobacterium longum OLP-01 Supplementation for Treatment of High-Fat Diet-Induced Obese Murine Model
TLDR
OLP-01 probiotics combined with exercise training can be employed as a strategy for treating obesity, and the exact regulatory mechanisms underlying this effect, possibly involving microbiota and associated metabolites, warrant further investigation.
Fasting: How to Guide
TLDR
The main goal is to identify a how to use guide, a major posology of fasting, inserted within a huge dietetic personalized strategy leading to an optimal and healthy nutritional status.

TLDR
A comprehensive approach, including reduced dietary intake, regular physical activity, and behavioural strategies, is warranted and is supported by the research evidence.

Long-term effects of a Palaeolithic-type diet in obese postmenopausal women: a 2-year randomized trial
TLDR
A PD has greater beneficial effects vs an NNR diet regarding fat mass, abdominal obesity and triglyceride levels in obese postmenopausal women; effects not sustained for anthropometric measurements at 24 months.
The effect of intermittent energy and carbohydrate restriction v. daily energy restriction on weight loss and metabolic disease risk markers in overweight women.
TLDR
In the short term, IECR is superior to DER with respect to improved insulin sensitivity and body fat reduction and longer-term studies into the safety and effectiveness of I ECR diets are warranted.

TLDR
Whether detox diets are necessary, what they involve, whether they are effective and whether they present any dangers are examined, as well as the potential benefits and risks of detox programmes.
Running sprint interval training induces fat loss in women.
TLDR
Running SIT is a time-efficient strategy for decreasing body fat while increasing aerobic capacity, peak running speed, and fat-free mass in healthy young women.
High Intensity Interval- vs Moderate Intensity- Training for Improving Cardiometabolic Health in Overweight or Obese Males: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
It is suggested that a relatively short duration of either HIIT or MIT training may improve cardiometabolic risk factors in previously sedentary overweight or obese young men, with no clear advantage between these two specific regimes.
Sex differences in the effects of 12 weeks sprint interval training on body fat mass and the rates of fatty acid oxidation and VO2max during exercise
TLDR
Results show lower body fat %, and higher rates of fatty acid oxidation and VO2max after 12 weeks of training for just 4 min per week, while men lost more fat than women.
Impact of intermittent fasting on health and disease processes
Humans in modern societies typically consume food at least three times daily, while laboratory animals are fed ad libitum. Overconsumption of food with such eating patterns often leads to metabolic
Low Calorie Dieting Increases Cortisol
TLDR
Test the hypothesis that dieting is ineffective because it increases chronic psychological stress and cortisol production and examines the respective roles of the two main behaviors that comprise dieting on psychological and biological stress indicators.
