The Effect of Omega-3 Fatty Acids on Energy Metabolism, Energy Intake, and Metabolic Response in Normal Weight and Overweight and Obese School Aged Children (8-12 years)

  title={The Effect of Omega-3 Fatty Acids on Energy Metabolism, Energy Intake, and Metabolic Response in Normal Weight and Overweight and Obese School Aged Children (8-12 years)},
  author={Charlayne F. Mitchell},
Background: Obesity is a major health concern in the United States. Omega-3 fatty acids (O3FA) have been observed to improve metabolic health and therefore might be useful in treatment of obesity. However, little is known regarding the effect of O3FA on school aged normal weight and overweight children. Objective: The objective of this thesis was to determine if habitual intake of O3FA at breakfast improves energy metabolism, appetite, and metabolic response in overweight and obese school-aged…

Breakfasts Higher in Protein Increase Postprandial Energy Expenditure, Increase Fat Oxidation, and Reduce Hunger in Overweight Children from 8 to 12 Years of Age.
This study indicates that breakfast macronutrient composition affects postprandial responses in both NW and OW children and increases satiety when compared with a carbohydrate-based breakfast.
A diet rich in long chain omega-3 fatty acids modulates satiety in overweight and obese volunteers during weight loss
LC n-3 FA intake modulates postprandial satiety in overweight and obese volunteers during weight loss, and further research is needed to investigate whether LC n- 3 FA improve compliance to the nutritional treatment of overweight and obesity as well as weight loss maintenance.
Effects of weight loss and seafood consumption on inflammation parameters in young, overweight and obese European men and women during 8 weeks of energy restriction
In this 8-week intervention trial, salmon consumption was most effective, three of the four measured inflammation parameters decreased significantly in the salmon group, and the mean concentrations of inflammation parameters decrease during a period of weight loss and dietary intervention.
The Effect of Breakfast Protein Source on Postprandial Hunger and Glucose Response in Normal Weight and Overweight Young Women
The data suggest protein source influences postprandial glucose response without significantly impacting appetite response and food intake in regular breakfast consumers, as well as no significant difference in daily energy intake between breakfasts.
Meals with similar energy densities but rich in protein, fat, carbohydrate, or alcohol have different effects on energy expenditure and substrate metabolism but not on appetite and energy intake.
The data do not support the proposed relation between the macronutrient oxidation hierarchy and the satiety hierarchy, and despite differences in substrate metabolism and hormone concentrations, satiety and ad libitum energy intake were not significantly different between meals.
The addition of a protein-rich breakfast and its effects on acute appetite control and food intake in ‘breakfast-skipping’ adolescents
Breakfast led to increased satiety through increased fullness and PYY concentrations in ‘breakfast skipping’ adolescents, suggesting that the addition of a protein-rich breakfast might be an effective strategy to improve appetite control in young people.
Metabolic health benefits of long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.
There have been few human intervention trials of omega-3 supplementation for obesity; some have indicated potential benefits, especially when combined with energy-restricted diets or exercise, but more trials are needed to confirm these effects and identify mechanisms of action.
Improved insulin sensitivity and body composition, irrespective of macronutrient intake, after a 12 month intervention in adolescents with pre-diabetes; RESIST a randomised control trial
When treated with metformin and an exercise program, a structured, reduced energy diet, which is either high- carbohydrate or moderate-carbohydrate with increased-protein, can achieve clinically significant improvements in obese adolescents at risk of type 2 diabetes.
High glycemic index foods, overeating, and obesity.
The rapid absorption of glucose after consumption of high-GI meals induces a sequence of hormonal and metabolic changes that promote excessive food intake in obese subjects.
A randomized trial of fish oil omega-3 fatty acids on arterial health, inflammation, and metabolic syndrome in a young healthy population
No salutary effects of O3 were observed in hemodynamic, metabolic syndrome criteria or inflammatory markers as a result of this relatively short period of administration in this relatively overweight, but healthy young adult cohort.
