Pandemic obesity is a major public health problem because of its association with non-communicable diseases and all-cause mortality, which can be improved/delayed with weight loss. Thus, several scientific societies and governments have launched guidelines to reduce body weight and adiposity or, at least, to avoid weight gain. In spite of the abundant literature on the topic, there is still controversy on the relative roles of fat and carbohydrate in the diet on weight gain. Present… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

The Mediterranean diet and health: a comprehensive overview
TLDR
It is likely that the combination of a healthy diet with social behaviours and the way of life of Mediterranean regions makes the MedDiet a sustainable lifestyle model that could likely be followed in other regions with country‐specific and culturally appropriate variations.
A Generation Shift in Mediterranean Diet Adherence and Its Association with Biological Markers and Health in Dalmatia, Croatia
TLDR
The results showed that the young, reproductively active generation (pregnant women) in Dalmatia, Croatia, although having a higher education and socioeconomic status, exhibits a more adverse eating behaviour and lifestyle than the older population from the same region.
Pathogenesis of obesity and cardiometabolic diseases: From the legacy of Ancel Keys to current concepts
  • A. Dulloo, J. Montani
  • Medicine
    Obesity reviews : an official journal of the International Association for the Study of Obesity
  • 2021
TLDR
The legacy of Ancel Keys is put into perspective in eight review articles that cover research areas that include the diagnosis of obesity for health risks, the role of dietary fat types in the pathogenesis of obesity and cardiometabolic diseases, and the psychological and physiological basis of the “famine reaction” that counters therapeutic dieting and facilitates weight regain.
How to provide a structured clinical assessment of a patient with overweight or obesity
TLDR
The components and rationale for the clinical assessment of adult patients with overweight or obesity, including anthropometric measurements and pathology tests, are described and recommendations to ascertain the potential factors influencing the development of obesity in the patient are provided.
Nutritional management of individuals with obesity and COVID-19: ESPEN expert statements and practical guidance
TLDR
Prevention, diagnosis and treatment of malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies should be routinely included in the management of COVID-19 patients in the presence of obesity; lockdown-induced health risks should also be specifically monitored and prevented in this population.
Self-Care by Muslim Women during Ramadan Fasting to Protect Nutritional and Cardiovascular Health
TLDR
Promoting nutritional health and encouraging year-round self-care among adult Muslim women is necessary in order to ensure healthy fasting during Ramadan, as these factors are related to cardiovascular risk.
Adherence to Mediterranean diet and advanced glycation endproducts in patients with diabetes
TLDR
It is demonstrated that adherence to MD is greater in patients with lower CV risk, longer disease duration, and well-controlled glycaemia, than in people with diabetes with low adherence.
Characteristics of a Group of Obese Tunisian People and Results of a Weight Management Intervention
TLDR
Overweight and obese people are subjects to obesity-related diseases and deficiencies in micronutrients, and a persistent healthy lifestyle can reduce weight and related morbidities.
Exercise-Induced Autophagy and Obesity

  • 2021
TLDR
Exercise-induced autophagy may be an effective nonpharmacological intervention to prevent and treat obesity and its complications and is put forward in the prevention and rehabilitation of obesity.
Validity of the energy-restricted Mediterranean Diet Adherence Screener.
TLDR
The 17-item energy-restricted Mediterranean Adherence Screener (er-MEDAS) used in the PREDIMED trial shows a modest to good concurrent validity compared with FFQ data, and shows acceptable construct validity, as a greater er- MEDAS score was associated with more favourable dietary and cardiometabolic profiles over time.

Protective mechanisms of the Mediterranean diet in obesity and type 2 diabetes.
  • H. Schröder
  • Biology, Medicine
    The Journal of nutritional biochemistry
  • 2007
TLDR
Evidence from epidemiological studies supports a protective effect of this dietary pattern on weight gain and the development of type 2 diabetes, and potential mechanisms by which the Mediterranean diet protects individuals from both diseases are discussed.
Scientific evidence of interventions using the Mediterranean diet: a systematic review.
TLDR
Results disclose the mechanisms of the Mediterranean diet in disease prevention, particularly in cardiovascular disease secondary prevention, but also emphasize the need to undertake experimental research and systematic reviews in the areas of primary prevention of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, infectious diseases, age-related cognitive impairment, and cancer, among others.
Healthy Weight and Obesity Prevention: JACC Health Promotion Series.
TLDR
The authors focus on "healthy weight" with the emphasis on the pathophysiologic effects of weight gain on the cardiovascular system; mechanistic/triggering factors; and the role of preventive actions through personal, education/environment, and societal/authoritative factors, as well as factors to provide guidance for caregivers of health promotion.
Dietary Fats and Cardiovascular Disease: A Presidential Advisory From the American Heart Association
TLDR
Taking into consideration the totality of the scientific evidence, satisfying rigorous criteria for causality, it is concluded strongly that lowering intake of saturated fat and replacing it with uns saturated fats, especially polyunsaturated fats, will lower the incidence of CVD.
Weight loss with a low-carbohydrate, Mediterranean, or low-fat diet.
BACKGROUND Trials comparing the effectiveness and safety of weight-loss diets are frequently limited by short follow-up times and high dropout rates. METHODS In this 2-year trial, we randomly
Prevention of Diabetes With Mediterranean Diets
TLDR
The final results on diabetes incidence in the whole multicenter trial after a median follow-up of 4.1 years are provided.
Mediterranean diets and metabolic syndrome status in the PREDIMED randomized trial
TLDR
A Mediterranean diet supplemented with either extra virgin olive oil or nuts is not associated with the onset of metabolic syndrome, but such diets are more likely to cause reversion of the condition.
Weight loss with a low-carbohydrate, Mediterranean, or low-fat diet.
TLDR
The absence of biologically significant weight loss (2 to 4% after 2 years) highlights the fact that energy restriction and weight loss in themselves may minimally affect metabolic outcomes and that lifestyle changes must incorporate physical activity to optimize the reduction in the risk of chronic disease.
Types of fat intake and body mass index in a Mediterranean country
TLDR
The association between consumption of specific types of dietary fat, olive oil and obesity in Spain is not very important, because of the cross-sectional design and some level of underreporting of energy intake observed in overweight subjects and overreporting in underweight subjects.
Systematic Review of the Mediterranean Diet for Long-Term Weight Loss.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the Mediterranean diet results in similar weight loss and cardiovascular risk factor level reduction as comparator diets in overweight or obese individuals trying to lose weight.
