A class of protein components which can be found in several lipoproteins including HIGH-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS; VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS; and CHYLOMICRONS. Synthesized in most organs, Apo E is important in the global transport of lipids and cholesterol throughout the body. Apo E is also a ligand for LDL receptors (RECEPTORS, LDL) that mediates the binding, internalization, and catabolism of lipoprotein particles in cells. There are several allelic isoforms (such as E2, E3, and E4). Deficiency or defects in Apo E are causes of HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE III.
An organism of the vegetable kingdom suitable by nature for use as a food, especially by human beings. Not all parts of any given plant are edible but all parts of edible plants have been known to figure as raw or cooked food: leaves, roots, tubers, stems, seeds, buds, fruits, and flowers. The most commonly edible parts of plants are FRUIT, usually sweet, fleshy, and succulent. Most edible plants are commonly cultivated for their nutritional value and are referred to as VEGETABLES.
Substances that increase the risk of NEOPLASMS in humans or animals. Both genotoxic chemicals, which affect DNA directly, and nongenotoxic chemicals, which induce neoplasms by other mechanism, are included.

Vitamin D status in different subgroups of British Asians. (1/20742)

To assess the effect of religious dietary practices and social customs on the vitamin D status of Asian immigrants, we kept records of the dietary intake and time spent out of doors of 81 Ugandan Asian men, women, and girls (9-19 years old). Sera were analysed for 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (25-OHD3), and 28% of the subjects were found to have levels below the lower limit of normal. The (vegetarian) Hindus had the lowest dietary intakes, least time out of doors, and lowest serum 25-OHD3. The Goan (Roman Catholic) Asians, despite more pigmentation, had 25-OHD3 levels similar to those found among indigenous British people and had the most satisfactory vitamin D intakes. Among Asians, whose exposure to sunlight may be limited, dietary vitamin D becomes the major determinant of serum 25-OHD3.  (+info)

Infleuce of dietary levels of vitamin E and selenium on tissue and blood parameters in pigs. (2/20742)

Eighteen barrows approximately three weeks of age were used in a 3 X 3 factorial arrangement to investigate the effect of level of supplemental vitamin E and selenium on tissue and blood parameters. Tissue selenium concentrations increased in a quadratic manner with increased selenium intake with kidney tissue containing considerably greater concentrations than liver, heart or muscle. Supplementation of the diet caused a three-fold increase in serum selenium within the first week with a slight tendency to further increases in subsequent weeks. Serum vitamin E of unsupplemented pigs declined by fifty percent during the experiment, whereas supplemental vitamin E resulted in increased serum vitamin E. There was a considerable viration in percent peroxide hemolysis. Correlation of -0.63 between percent peroxide hemolysis and vitamin E intake and -0.85 between percent peroxide hemolysis and serum vitamin E were observed.  (+info)

Acute and chronic dose-response relationships for angiotensin, aldosterone, and arterial pressure at varying levels of sodium intake. (3/20742)

We examined the acute and chronic dose-response relationships between intravenously infused angiotensin II (A II) and the resulting changes in arterial pressure and plasma aldosterone concentration at varying levels of sodium intake. Sequential analysis of plasma aldosterone at each A II infusion rate resulted in an acute dose-related increase in plasma aldosterone which was markedly attenuated after the first 24 hours of infusion, the final level being directly related to the dose of A II and inversely related to sodium intake. A II infused at 5,15, and 23 ng/kg per min was associated with an initial increase (2nd to 8th hour) in plasma aldosterone to 2,6, and 9 times control values, respectively, in dogs receiving 40 mEq Na+/day. But, after the 1st day, aldosterone averaged only 1, 1.7, and 3 times control values for the next 2 weeks at the same rates of A II infusion. Dogs receiving 120 mEq Na+/day during A II infusion exhibited only a transient increase in plasma aldosterone during the 1st day. Sustained hypertension developed over a period of a week at all doses of A II at normal and high sodium intake, but did not occur at any dose of A II in sodium-depleted dogs. Increasing sodium intake from 40 to 120 mEq/day resulted in higher levels of hypertension, 125% compared to 140% of ocntrol values for dogs infused with A II, 5.0 ng/kg per min. We conclude that primary angiotensin-induced hypertension need not be associated with increased levels of plasma aldosterone, which appears to remain elevated only with amounts of A II greater than those required to sustain a significant degree of hypertension.  (+info)

Dietary intake and practices in the Hong Kong Chinese population. (4/20742)

OBJECTIVES: To examine dietary intake and practices of the adult Hong Kong Chinese population to provide a basis for future public health recommendations with regard to prevention of certain chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and osteoporosis. PARTICIPANTS: Age and sex stratified random sample of the Hong Kong Chinese population aged 25 to 74 years (500 men, 510 women). METHOD: A food frequency method over a one week period was used for nutrient quantification, and a separate questionnaire was used for assessment of dietary habits. Information was obtained by interview. RESULTS: Men had higher intakes of energy and higher nutrient density of vitamin D, monounsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol, but lower nutrient density of protein, many vitamins, calcium, iron, copper, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. There was an age related decrease in energy intake and other nutrients except for vitamin C, sodium, potassium, and percentage of total calorie from carbohydrate, which all increased with age. Approximately 50% of the population had a cholesterol intake of < or = 300 mg; 60% had a fat intake < or = 30% of total energy; and 85% had a percentage of energy from saturated fats < or = 10%; criteria considered desirable for cardiovascular health. Seventy eight per cent of the population had sodium intake values in the range shown to be associated with the age related rise in blood pressure with age. Mean calcium intake was lower than the FAO/WHO recommendations. The awareness of the value of wholemeal bread and polyunsaturated fat spreads was lower in this population compared with that in Australia. There was a marked difference in types of cooking oil compared with Singaporeans, the latter using more coconut/palm/mixed vegetable oils. CONCLUSION: Although the current intake pattern for cardiovascular health for fat, saturated fatty acid, and cholesterol fall within the recommended range for over 50% of the population, follow up surveys to monitor the pattern would be needed. Decreasing salt consumption, increasing calcium intake, and increasing the awareness of the health value of fibre may all be beneficial in the context of chronic disease prevention.  (+info)

Physician advice and individual behaviors about cardiovascular disease risk reduction--seven states and Puerto Rico, 1997. (5/20742)

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) (e.g., heart disease and stroke) is the leading cause of death in the United States and accounted for 959,227 deaths in 1996. Strategies to reduce the risk for heart disease and stroke include lifestyle changes (e.g., eating fewer high-fat and high-cholesterol foods) and increasing physical activity. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and the American Heart Association (AHA) recommend that, as part of a preventive health examination, all primary-care providers counsel their patients about a healthy diet and regular physical activity. AHA also recommends low-dose aspirin use as a secondary preventive measure among persons with existing CVD. To determine the prevalence of physician counseling about cardiovascular health and changes in individual behaviors, CDC analyzed data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) for seven states and Puerto Rico. This report summarizes the results of that analysis, which indicate a lower prevalence of counseling and behavior change among persons without than with a history of heart disease or stroke.  (+info)

Low calorie diet enhances renal, hemodynamic, and humoral effects of exogenous atrial natriuretic peptide in obese hypertensives. (6/20742)

The expression of the natriuretic peptide clearance receptor is abundant in human and rat adipose tissue, where it is specifically inhibited by fasting. In obese hypertensives, plasma atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) levels were found to be lower than in obese normotensives. Therefore, the increased adipose mass might influence ANP levels and/or its biological activity. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether the humoral, hemodynamic, and renal effects of exogenous ANP in obese hypertensives might be enhanced by a very low calorie diet. Eight obese hypertensives received a bolus injection of ANP (0.6 mg/kg) after 2 weeks of a normal calorie/normal sodium diet, and blood pressure (BP), heart rate, ANP, cGMP, plasma renin activity, and aldosterone were evaluated for 2 hours before and after the injection. Diuresis and natriuresis were measured every 30 minutes. The patients then started a low calorie/normal sodium diet (510 kcal/150 mmol/d) for 4 days, and then the ANP injection protocol was repeated. The low calorie diet induced a slight weight loss (from 90.6+/-1.1 to 87. 7+/-1.2 kg; P<0.01), which was accompanied by increase of cGMP excretion (from 146.0+/-10.1 to 154.5+/-9.5 nmol/24 h; P<0.05) together with a reduction of BP (P<0.01 versus basal levels). ANP injection after diet was followed by an increase of ANP levels similar to that observed before diet, but plasma cGMP, diuresis, and natriuresis increased significantly only after diet. Similarly, the decrease of BP after ANP administration was significantly higher after diet (change in mean arterial pressure, -6.4+/-0.7 versus -4. 0+/-0.6 mm Hg; P<0.05) as well as that of aldosterone (P<0.01). These data show that a low calorie diet enhances the humoral, renal, and hemodynamic effects of ANP in obese hypertensives and confirm the importance of caloric intake in modulating the biological activity of ANP, suggesting that the natriuretic peptide system can play a role in the acute changes of natriuresis and diuresis associated with caloric restriction.  (+info)

Thiamine deficiency is prevalent in a selected group of urban Indonesian elderly people. (7/20742)

This cross-sectional study involved 204 elderly individuals (93 males and 111 females). Subjects were randomly recruited using a list on which all 60-75 y-old-people living in seven sub-villages in Jakarta were included. The usual food intake was estimated using semiquantitative food frequency questionnaires. Hemoglobin, plasma retinol, vitamin B-12, red blood cell folate and the percentage stimulation of erythrocyte transketolase (ETK), as an indicator of thiamine status, were analyzed. Median energy intake was below the assessed requirement. More than 75% of the subjects had iron and thiamine intakes of approximately 2/3 of the recommended daily intake, and 20.2% of the study population had folate intake of approximately 2/3 of the recommended daily intake. Intakes of vitamins A and B-12 were adequate. Biochemical assessments demonstrated that 36.6% of the subjects had low thiamine levels (ETK stimulation > 25%). The elderly men tended to have lower thiamine levels than the elderly women. The overall prevalence of anemia was 28.9%, and the elderly women were affected more than the elderly men. Low biochemical status of vitamins A, B-12 and RBC folate was found in 5.4%, 8.8 % and 2.9% of the subjects, respectively. Dietary intakes of thiamine and folate were associated with ETK stimulation and plasma vitamin B-12 concentration (r = 0.176, P = 0.012 and r = 0.77, P = 0.001), respectively. Results of this study suggest that anemia, thiamine and possibly vitamin B-12 deficiency are prevalent in the elderly living in Indonesia. Clearly, micronutrient supplementation may be beneficial for the Indonesian elderly population living in underprivileged areas.  (+info)

Metallothionein-null mice absorb less Zn from an egg-white diet, but a similar amount from solutions, although with altered intertissue Zn distribution. (8/20742)

The influence of metallothionein (MT) on Zn transfer into non-gut tissues was investigated in MT-null (MT-/-) and normal (MT+/+) mice 4 h after oral gavage of aqueous 65ZnSO4solution at doses of 154, 385, 770 and 1540 nmol Zn per mouse. Zn transfer was not significantly different between MT+/+ and MT-/- mice and was directly proportional to the oral dose (slope = 0.127, r = 0.991; 0. 146, r = 0.994, respectively). Blood 65Zn and plasma Zn concentrations increased progressively in MT-/- mice at doses >154 nmol Zn, reaching levels of 2.4% of oral dose and 60 micromol/L, respectively, at the 1540 nmol Zn dose. The corresponding values for MT+/+ mice were approximately half, 1.0% and 29 micromol/L. Intergenotypic differences were found in tissue distribution of 65Zn within the body; MT-/- mice had higher 65Zn levels in muscle, skin, heart and brain, whereas MT+/+ mice retained progressively more Zn in the liver, in conjunction with a linear increase in hepatic MT up to the highest Zn dose. MT induction in the small intestine reached its maximum at an oral dose of 385 nmol Zn and did not differ at higher doses. Absorption of a 770 nmol 65Zn dose from a solid egg-white diet was only one fourth (MT+/+) and one eighth (MT-/-) of the Zn absorption from the same dose of 65Zn in aqueous solution. MT+/+ mice had greater (P < 0.05) Zn absorption from the egg-white diet than did MT-/- mice, indicating that gut MT confers an absorptive advantage, but only when Zn is incorporated into solid food.  (+info)

A populations mean Healthy Eating Index-2005 scores are best estimated by the score of the population ratio when one 24-hour recall is available
For nine studies in which mean prices were reported without their uncertainty, the SEs were imputed from the number of observations in each category, based on linear regression of studies with complete data, performed separately for market surveys (6 studies comparing samples of foods) and individual dietary surveys (3 studies comparing diets across samples of participants; supporting figure 1).. We recognised that price comparisons within food groups (ie, healthier vs less healthy options within the same category of food) may vary from price comparisons across overall diet patterns. Furthermore, price differences may vary for diet patterns largely based on foods versus diet patterns largely based on one or a few isolated nutrients. Thus, we separately investigated price differences that compared options within a single similar category of food (eg, meats/protein, grains, dairy), price differences that compared varying concordance to food-based diet patterns (eg, Alternative Healthy Eating ...
I have had several clients lately ask my opinion on all the different types of diets. Do they work? Would a person benefit from trying one, two or twelve of them? Hmmm, let me think… NO!. If youve ever tried losing weight before, you know just how many diets are out there (way too many for my liking). Theres everything from the food specific diets such as the banana diet, the grapefruit diet and the cabbage soup diet to diets named after places such as South Beach, Mediterranean and Sonoma. Dont forget the diets that are named after the people who created them like Atkins and the diets that are named after the theories behind them like the Blood Type, Body Type and the ADHD diet. Theres dangerous diets like extreme calorie restriction diets, extreme detox diets and the hCG diet.

Over 9 years of follow-up, nearly 40% of the 9514 middle-aged men and women included in this analysis developed MetSyn. Dietary consumption of a Western dietary pattern, meat, fried foods, and diet soda was adversely associated with incident MetSyn, whereas intake of dairy was protective. No association was observed between incident MetSyn and consumption of a prudent dietary pattern, fruit and vegetables, whole grains, refined grains, nuts, sweetened beverages, and coffee.. Consumption of a Western dietary pattern, characterized by high intakes of refined grains, processed meat, fried foods, and red meat, was associated with a 18% greater risk of incident MetSyn for participants in the highest quintile of Western dietary pattern scores compared with those in the lowest quintile. In our study, the prudent dietary pattern, typified by consumption of cruciferous and carotinoid vegetables, fruit, fish, and poultry, was not associated with incident MetSyn. Prevalent MetSyn has previously been ...
DASH was first introduced at a meeting of the American Heart Association in 1996 and later published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1997. [2] The DASH trial randomly assigned 456 people to different diets to test the effects of dietary patterns on lowering blood pressure. The authors surmised that eating a diet with many different foods with blood pressure-lowering nutrients would show a greater effect on blood pressure than eating single nutrients, such as found in supplements or in a limited diet. Three diets were tested: 1) a control diet, or a standard American diet, 2) a fruits and vegetables diet, similar to the control diet but providing more fruits and vegetables and less snacks and sweets, and 3) a combination diet rich in fruits, vegetables, nuts, and low-fat dairy foods with reduced amounts of saturated fat, total fat, and cholesterol. The last two diets were richer in nutrients associated with lower blood pressure, such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, fiber, and protein. ...
Diet quality has been linked to obesity, but this relationship remains unclear in individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D). The aim of this study is to examine the association between diet quality and obesity in Chinese adults with T2D. Between April and November 2016, a total of 211 Chinese T2D adults who underwent assessment of diabetes-related treatment goals and metabolic control were recruited into two groups based on their body mass index (BMI): obese group (BMI ≥30 kg/m2) and non-obese group (BMI = 18.5-24.9 kg/m2). Diet quality indices including Alternate Healthy Eating Index-2010 (AHEI-2010), Diet Quality Index-International (DQI-I), and Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension (DASH) score, were derived from a validated food frequency questionnaire. Obese T2D patients had significantly lower AHEI-2010 (P | 0.001), DQI-I (P | 0.001), and DASH total scores (P = 0.044) than their non-obese counterparts, independent of age and sex. They also had higher total energy (P | 0.001), protein percentage of

TY - JOUR. T1 - Factors influencing energy intake of rats fed either a high-fat or a fat mimetic diet. AU - Harris, R. B.S.. PY - 1994/1/1. Y1 - 1994/1/1. N2 - The aim of this study was to compare the effects of chronic feeding of a high-fat diet and a diet containing a fat mimetic on energy intake, body composition and tissue metabolism of mature female Sprague Dawley rats. Rats were fed a control, 25% kJ fat, diet for 10 days. Preference for this diet compared with a high-fat, 45% kJ fat, or fat mimetic, 25% kJ fat, diet was determined by offering rats two diets, in random order, for a period of 13.5 hours on three different occasions at two day intervals. Animals were then divided into three groups, receiving one of the three diets for 42 days. Dietary preference was tested again. Hepatic and muscle glucose and fatty acid utilization were measured in vitro and body composition was determined. Most of the rats preferred the mimetic diet over either control or high-fat diet, but there was no ...
Heres a link to a recent Time magazine article on the microbiome:. It references work by our customer, Krzysztof Czaja:. In this study, the researchers used 3 diets: a purified high-fat diet, a purified sucrose matched, low-fat diet and a grain-based low-fat, low sucrose diet. Its important to note that the grain-based diet differs from the two purified diets in many ways other than the sucrose or fat content. As such, the grain-based diet should not be considered a low sucrose control diet, but rather another experimental diet. This paper also highlights the finding that low fat diets dont necessarily produce the same phenotype, especially if one is made with purified ingredients and one is grain-based. The differences in fiber type and content alone between purified diets and grain-based diets would be expected to cause a difference in phenotype independent of diet ...
Dispositional optimism is a psychological trait that has been associated with positive health outcomes such as reduced risk of cardiovascular diseases. However, there is little knowledge on the relationship between optimism and dietary intake in the population. The objective of this cross-sectional study was to assess whether optimism was associated with overall diet quality, food group consumption and snacking. In 2016, 32,806 adult participants from the NutriNet-Santé study completed the Life-Orientation Test Revised (LOT-R) which assesses dispositional optimism. Overall diet quality (assessed by the mPNNS-Guideline Score) and consumption of 22 food groups were evaluated using at least three self-reported 24-h dietary records. Snacking behavior was evaluated by an ad-hoc question. Logistic and linear regressions were used to analyze the associations between optimism and these dietary behaviors, taking into account socio-demographic, lifestyle and depressive symptomatology characteristics.

This is constructive criticism for those who are wonderfully happily detoxing their way seeing improvements in their eczema and psoriasis ordeals. Detox protocols have value. Up to a point. And only up to that point and then nothing.. You really must look into diet changes. You really need to make those diet adjustments. You may really have the need to go temporary fruitarian for 3 days, or raw vegan for 1 month, and eventually mostly raw paleolithic diet for a good long time. But please, never ever going back to a mostly SAD / Standard Urban Junk Food Diet.. Fasting for example is serious business. It is a healing tool.. Change in diet is for the rest of your life.

A healthy weight is an important element of good health. How much you eat-and what you eat-play central roles in maintaining a healthy weight or losing weight. Exercise is the other key actor.. For years, low-fat diets were thought to be the best way to lose weight. A growing body of evidence shows that low-fat diets often dont work, in part because these diets often replace fat with easily digested carbohydrates.. Hundreds of diets have been created, many promising fast and permanent weight loss. Remember the cabbage soup diet? The grapefruit diet? How about the Hollywood 48 Hour Miracle diet, the caveman diet, the Subway diet, the apple cider vinegar diet, and a host of forgettable celebrity diets?. The truth is, almost any diet will work if it helps you take in fewer calories. Diets do this in two main ways:. ...

A calibration approach was developed to correct for systematic between-cohort dietary measurement errors in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC), a large multicenter cohort study. To validate the 24-h diet recalls (24-HDRs) as reference measurements for between-cohort calibration, we estimated the agreement between center mean nitrogen (N) and total energy intakes and mean 24-h urinary N. Similar analyses using N and energy intake data from different dietary questionnaires (DQs) used at study baseline were conducted to estimate the effect of the calibration approach. This study was conducted between 1995 and 1999, and involved 1103 volunteers of both genders from 12 centers participating in European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition. Pearsons correlation coefficients were weighted for study center sample size. When both genders were considered together (n = 22), the correlation coefficients between the center mean log-transformed urinary estimates
Abstract: Research indicates that low income, minorities are at increased risk for poor dietary behaviors leading to weight gain and poor overall health status. A secondary data analysis of the 1999-2002 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey was conducted to identify associations between food security status, income level, and ethnicity identification and weight status, dietary quality, and dietary behaviors. The sample included US-born Non-Hispanic White (NHW), Non-Hispanic Black (NHB) and Mexican Americans (MA) aged 20-85 years. Bivariate analyses indicated that while low income individuals and NHB were significantly more likely to be obese than NHW and MA, the overall diet quality among the three groups was not significantly different. However, statistically significant differences for specific dietary behaviors were found. NHW reported higher consumption of milk, NHB reported higher consumption of dark green vegetables, and MA reported higher consumption of dried beans and peas. ...
Mediterranean-DASH Diet Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay (MIND) is a Phase III randomized controlled trial designed to test the effects of a 3-year intervention of a hybrid of the Mediterranean and DASH diets, called MIND, on cognitive decline among 600 individuals 65+ years without cognitive impairment who are overweight and have suboptimal diets. The proposed MIND diet is a hybrid of the Mediterranean and DASH diets but with selected modifications based on the most compelling evidence in the diet-dementia field. The MIND diet has the same basic components of the DASH and Mediterranean diets, such as emphasis on natural plant-based foods and limited animal and high saturated fat foods, but uniquely specifies green leafy vegetables and berries as well as food component servings that reflect the nutrition-dementia evidence. The trial will employ a parallel group design comparing the effects on cognitive outcomes of the MIND intervention diet plus mild caloric restriction for weight loss ...
Importance: Considerable efforts have been undertaken to relate single nutrients to bone health. To this point, results are inconsistent. Suboptimal single nutrient intake does not occur in isolation but rather reflects a poor diet quality.. Objective: To assess the association between adherence to a diet quality index constructed on the basis of dietary recommendations or existing healthy dietary patterns and fractures in postmenopausal women.. Design, Setting, and Participants: Post hoc analysis was conducted of longitudinal data from 40 clinical centers throughout the United States included in the Womens Health Initiative (WHI) observational study. Participants in the prospective cohort included 93 676 women who were eligible for the WHI if they were aged 50 to 79 years. Recruitment was conducted from October 1, 1993, to December 31, 1998, with the study ending August 29, 2014. The WHI food frequency questionnaire was used to derive nutrient and food intake at baseline. Diet quality and ...
Studies have assessed individual components of a western diet, but no study has assessed the long-term, cumulative effects of a western diet on aging and Alzheimers disease (AD). Therefore, we have formulated the first western-style diet that mimics the fat, carbohydrate, protein, vitamin and mineral levels of western diets. This diet was fed to aging C57BL/6J (B6) mice to identify phenotypes that may increase susceptibility to AD, and to APP/PS1 mice, a mouse model of AD, to determine the effects of the diet in AD. Astrocytosis and microglia/monocyte activation were dramatically increased in response to diet and was further increased in APP/PS1 mice fed the western diet. This increase in glial responses was associated with increased plaque burden in the hippocampus. Interestingly, given recent studies highlighting the importance of TREM2 in microglia/monocytes in AD susceptibility and progression, B6 and APP/PS1 mice fed the western diet showed significant increases TREM2+ microglia/monocytes.
This could be attributed to the similarities in the nutrient composition of the two diets (Table 1) and suggests that the inclusion of 5% BGO, which replaced 11.11% soybean meal and 14.93% maize in the pullet chick diet, was so low to have affected the performance of the birds. Pullets fed 10% BGO diet had daily weight gain and final live weight that were significantly (P,0.05) higher than those of pullets fed 15, 20 and 25% BGO diets. Values of these two parameters for pullet chicks fed 10, 15, 20 and 25% BGO diets were significantly lower (P,0.05) than the values of pullets fed 5% BGO and control diets. The higher live weight gain and final live weight of pullet chicks fed 5% BGO and control diets could be attributed to higher CP and ME of the diets (Table 1). It could be observed that the CP and ME content of the diets were decreasing with increasing levels of BGO in the diets. Crude fibre content was also increasing, which could have negatively affected the performance of the chicks. ...
How To Get Ripped FAST? (Step By Step Guide) - How Many Calories - How To Setup Your Macronutrients - How Much Protein - Low Fat Diet vs Low Carb Diet Key points:. When protein and the calorie deficit are equated low carb diets perform pretty much the same as low fat diets in terms of weight loss.. Additionally moderate-high carbohydrate diets yield better performance in the gym for most people.. And if we look at the majority of natural physique athlete diets its usually a moderate-high amount of carbohydrates, moderate protein and low-moderate fat.. The advocates promote the fact that low carb diets are more effective for weight loss are misinterpreting research. Specifically theyll often compare low carb high protein diets vs low fat low protein high carbohydrate diets. ...
Our study examined the relationship between dietary patterns and weight status among middle-aged and elderly men and women in Taiwan. We found that men and women who consumed a diet high in meat and processed foods were more likely to be overweight or obese, unlike those who consumed a diet rich in vegetables and fruits. The prevalence of overweight and obesity from the year 1993 to 1996 increased in Taiwan from 33.4% to 51.0% in adult men and slightly in adult women from 33.5% to 35.9% [1]; and with these weight changes, in both men and women, dietary habits may have contributed to the increase in the prevalence of overweight and obesity. Previous studies also suggested that the change in lifestyle as well as in eating habit, from Chinese traditional dietary pattern to Western dietary pattern, could explain these relationships [30, 31]. According to the current methods of classifying dietary patterns in the Western countries, the vegetable-fruit dietary pattern could be referred to as prudent ...

Digestibility data were determined in 2 replications of a 2 x 3 x 2 x 2 factorial arranged experiment to: (1) determine the effects of forage type (grass vs alfalfa), forage maturity (late vegetative vs midbloom vs fullbloom), diet ingredients (forage only vs 50:50 forage plus corn), and diet texture (coarsely chopped vs pelleted) on the digestibility of diet chemical constituents by sheep; (2) develop equations to estimate digestible energy of sheep diets from nutrient content of the diet; and (3) compare popular chemical methods used to partition feed dry matter into fibrous and soluble components. Diets were fed to growing wether lambs. Crude protein (CP) and available carbohydrates (AC) of diets were nearly 100% digestible (true digestibility) regardless of diet source. However, the apparent digestibility of CP and AC varied significantly with concentration of these components in the diet. Apparent digestibility of cellulose (CL) was significantly different between grass and alfalfa, early and late
Besides genetic factors, diet components may contribute to the development of obesity, and it is known that cafeteria diet is characterized by a high caloric intake. Thus, the present study evaluated the mutagenic effects that cafeteria diet exerted on Wistar rats and its consequences on female offspring. Twelve females (generation 1) were separated in control group (CTL) and Cafeteria Diet group (CAF). At 70 days of age, females were mated with non-obese control males. Weaning at 21 days of age, female offspring (2nd generation) were separated into daughters of CTL or CAF mothers and subdivided according to previous diet. Ratio of polychromatic erythrocytes (PCE) / normochromatic erythrocytes (NCE) in a total of 1000 cells and Micronuclei (MN) 1000 PCE were evaluated. Were observed high MN frequencies, body weight, retroperitoneal and perigonadal fat; and low PCE/NCE ratio in generation 1. In generation 2, cafeteria diet caused high body weight, retroperitoneal and perigonadal fat and ...
If youre looking for how to lose weight fast in two weeks or so, but dont want to fully go keto, then a low carb diet is a good option. A low-carb diet is a diet that limits carbohydrate foods - such as foods with added sugar, grains, starchy vegetables and fruit - and emphasizes foods high in protein and fat.. There are various types of low carb diets in existence, one of which is a high-protein diet. Low-carb diets tend to be either very high in fat or high in protein. If you choose to follow a high-protein diet, which is what the Atkins Diet could be considered, your diet will be roughly distributed as 30 to 35 percent calories from protein, 20 percent or less from carbohydrates, and about 45 to 50 percent from fat. With every meal youll want to incorporate 1-2 palm-sized portions of protein, such as fish or meat.. Many people will still experience great results when eating a modified keto diet that is a bit higher in carbs, or keto-cycling or carb-cycling in which they boost carb ...
Downloadable! Conventionally, fruits and vegetables have been the major source of micronutrients. However, with the rising availability of nutritional supplements, U.S. consumers no longer need to rely on food alone for their nutritional needs. Time-pressured consumers with limited cooking skills and nutrition knowledge may find it easier to take vitamin supplements. The objective of this paper is to determine the impact of lifestyle, diet behavior including vitamin supplement consumption, and food culture on diet quality outcomes as measured by the Healthy Eating Index-2005 (HEI) and total energy intake. We use the 2003-04 U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to examine the relationship between HEI and caloric intake. Further, our specific focus is to determine the role of vitamin supplements in the U.S. diet by developing a profile of supplement consumers. In addition, we consider the caloric implications of diets that substitute vitamin supplements for fruits and vegetables

Younger horses definitely have different nutritional needs to adult horses, one significant being more protein in the diet. Balanced nutrition is important to avoid illnesses like Developmental Orthopaedic Diseases (DOD).. I cannot cover all scenarios, so are focusing on yearlings and extrapolating for your horse, as rising 3 yo.. The feed requirements vary from the first year, while being fed by mum to a yearling and then the following years towards adulthood, 5 year old, gradually merge to match an adult diet. Any nutritional needs will vary if a horse is in work and the intensity of the work.. The key for horse is to get the right balance of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc and copper, plus amino acids, often available in protein. Key to this is that the bulk of any horses diet is forage - pasture, hay or other fibre sources, like the beet.. On her current diet, I would feed lucerne/alfalfa hay (same thing), cut out the beet, its better if she has the hay to munch on overnight. Then add ...
High protein, low carbohydrate diets may promote weight loss by shifting fuel use from carbohydrates to fat when carbs are not available in the diet. An Australian study showed that the body could convert amino acids (protein) into carbohydrates in the lever by a process called gluconeogenesis. Researchers compared blood sugar and fat levels in people who followed a three day starvation diet; a three day high protein, low carb diet; or a three day mixed diet.. Blood sugar decreased and blood fats increased during the starvation diet, but did not change during the high protein/low carb or mixed diet. The amino acids from proteins can be converted to carbohydrates in the liver when carbs are unavailable in the diet. High protein diets probably promote weight loss by preventing hunger and restricting food intake. (Metabolism, 59: 1633-1641, 2010). ...
Sepsis occurs when the immune system begins to attack organs and tissues in response to a blood infection. The blood infection can be bacterial, viral, fungal or protozoan in origin. If not detected early, blood pressure can fall, sending the person into septic shock.. The research team began by putting a group of mice on the Western diet. The mice enjoyed a sugary diet, high in bad fats and low in fiber, antioxidants, and phyto-nutrients. They gave a control group a basic diet that balanced the rodents basic nutritional needs. The mice fed a Western diet showed high levels of inflammation throughout their body, long before sepsis set in. The low fiber diet caused inflammation in the intestines. The lack of healthy fats and phyto-nutrients burdened the cardiovascular system and the brain of the rodents. All in all, the mice fed a Western diet suffered from more severe cases of sepsis. The mortality risk from sepsis was much greater as well for the mice on the Western diet. The Western diet ...
The aim of this study was to investigate the association of breastfeeding duration and food variety at 2 years of age. A secondary data analysis was undertaken of the Western Australian Pregnancy Cohort (Raine) Study, an ongoing longitudinal study. Data collected from a single 24 h dietary recall of 1905, 2 year-old children were used to calculate two food variety scores; a core food variety score (CFVS) and a fruit and vegetable variety score (FVVS). Multivariate linear regression analysis was used to identify those factors independently associated with the CFVS and FVVS. The mean CFVS was 7.52 (range 1–18) of a possible 34 food items or groups and the mean FVVS was 2.84 (range 0–10) of a possible 16 food items or groups. Breastfeeding duration was independently directly associated with the CFVS (p < 0.001) and FVVS (p < 0.001). In addition, maternal age was independently directly associated with the CFVS (p < 0.001) and FVVS (p = 0.001) as was maternal education (CFVS p < 0.001
The risk of esophageal cancer, in relation to the frequency of consumption of selected dietary items, was evaluated in a hospital-based case-control study; this study was of 105 histologically confirmed cases and 348 control subjects with acute conditions unrelated to any of the established or potential risk factors for esophageal cancer. The frequency of consumption of carrots, green vegetables, or fresh fruits was lower in cases. Further, cases tended to eat meat and fish less frequently and eggs more frequently. The estimated multivariate relative risks were 0.6 for regular (more than once a week) carrot consumption and 0.6 and 0.3, respectively, for the highest levels of vegetable or fruit consumption (compared with the lowest ones). Consequently, a strong negative association emerged between estimated beta-carotene (but not retinol) intake and esophageal cancer risk. The risk of cancer of the esophagus was not significantly related to subjective scores of fat and whole-meal food intake; ...
Introduction: The study assessed dietary diversity score (DDS) of rural under-five children and the relationship with their nutritional status and socio-demographic characteristics of their mothers/caregivers. Methods: The study was a descriptive cross-sectional survey involving 226 mothers and their under-five children selected at random from rural communities in Imo state, Nigeria. A pre-tested questionnaire was used to obtain information on socio-demographics. Qualitative recall of the childs food consumption during the previous 24-h was used to calculate individual dietary diversity score (DDS=representing the number of food groups, based on a scale of 12 groups) and the scores were divided into terciles low= =4, medium=5 - 8, and high= 9 - 12). Weight-for-age (WAZ), height-for-age (HAZ) and weight-for-height (WHZ) Z-scores were used to determine nutritional status of the children. Descriptive statistics, Chi square and linear regression analyses were performed. Results: Average age of the ...
Intakes of some macronutrients can comprise risk factors for life-style-related diseases such as obesity, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, hypertension, and atherosclerosis. In this study, we examined the effects in C57BL/6J mice of consuming excess fat or sucrose for a long period of time (55 wk). Another group of mice consumed a low-fat, low-sucrose (LL) diet. Mice fed the high-fat (HF) diet gained weight and developed hyperlipidemia and hyperleptinemia. At 25 wk, but not at 55 wk, hepatic glucose-6-phosphatase (G6Pase) activity of the mice fed the high sucrose (HS) diet was greater than that of mice fed the LL or HF diet. Those fed the HS diet were not obese and had greater hepatic lipogenic and gluconeogenic enzyme activities. The HF and HS diets resulted in different types of glucose intolerance. In an oral glucose tolerance test, mice fed the HF diet had a delay in the clearance of glucose compared with those fed the LL diet, perhaps due to the peripheral insulin resistance that resulted from ...
The evolution of the human diet over the past 10,000 years from a Paleolithic diet to our current modern pattern of intake has resulted in profound changes in feeding behavior. Shifts have occurred from diets high in fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and seafood to processed foods high in sodium and hydrogenated fats and low in fiber. These dietary changes have adversely affected dietary parameters known to be related to health, resulting in an increase in obesity and chronic disease, including cardiovascular disease (CVD), diabetes, and cancer. Some intervention trials using Paleolithic dietary patterns have shown promising results with favorable changes in CVD and diabetes risk factors. However, such benefits may be offset by disadvantages of the Paleolithic diet, which is low in vitamin D and calcium and high in fish potentially containing environmental toxins. More advantageous would be promotion of foods and food ingredients from our ancestral era that have been shown to possess health ...
BACKGROUND: Adherence to a healthy diet has been associated with reduced risk of chronic diseases. Identifying nutritional biomarkers of diet quality may be complementary to traditional questionnaire-based methods and may provide insights concerning disease mechanisms and prevention. OBJECTIVE: To identify metabolites associated with diet quality assessed via the Alternate Healthy Eating Index (AHEI) and its components. METHODS: This cross-sectional study used FFQ data and plasma metabolomic profiles, mostly lipid related, from the Nurses Health Study (NHS, n = 1460) and Health Professionals Follow-up Study (HPFS, n = 1051). Linear regression models assessed associations of the AHEI and its components with individual metabolites. Canonical correspondence analyses (CCAs) investigated overlapping patterns between AHEI components and metabolites. Principal component analysis (PCA) and explanatory factor analysis were used to consolidate correlated metabolites into uncorrelated factors. We used ...
Few systematic data are available on the range of individual blood lipid responsiveness to specific diet changes. Multiple, carefully standardized total serum cholesterol (TC) measurements were made in 58 men under a variety of controlled dietary conditions. Responsiveness was defined for each individual as the change in mean TC per unit change in Diet Score based on the Keys-Minnesota equation. Only 3% were potentially nonresponders, and even these probably evidenced some response. Of the group, 64% responded within 30% of prediction. We classed 9% as hyporesponders, while in another 9% responsiveness exceeded 1.5 times expectation. We conclude that in metabolically normal individuals the variation in short-term response to dietary change is normally distributed but that nonresponse to diet change is rare. Because metabolic, intrinsic hyporesponsiveness of TC to change in diet composition is uncommon, assessment of the real effectiveness of a dietary regimen in an individual is best based on ...

New research from MIT reveals ties high-fat diet to changes in intestinal stem cells, helping to explain an increased cancer risk.. Over the past decade, studies have found that obesity and eating a high-fat, high-calorie diet are significant risk factors for many types of cancer. Now, a new study from MIT reveals how a high-fat diet makes the cells of the intestinal lining more likely to become cancerous.. The study of mice suggests that a high-fat diet drives a population boom of intestinal stem cells and also generates a pool of other cells that behave like stem cells - that is, they can reproduce themselves indefinitely and differentiate into other cell types. These stem cells and stem-like cells are more likely to give rise to intestinal tumors, says Omer Yilmaz, an MIT assistant professor of biology and leader of the research team.. Not only does the high-fat diet change the biology of stem cells, it also changes the biology of non-stem-cell populations, which collectively leads to an ...
In this large cohort study of women, we derived 2 major dietary patterns. Greater adherence to the prudent pattern, characterized by a high intake of vegetables, fruit, legumes, fish, poultry, and whole grains, was related to a lower risk of cardiovascular and total mortality. In contrast, greater adherence to the Western pattern, reflecting a high intake of red and processed meat, refined grains, french fries, and sweets and desserts, was linked to a higher risk of cardiovascular, cancer, and total mortality.. The relation of overall dietary patterns with mortality resulting from CVD or other chronic diseases has not been widely examined. Similar to our study, the prudent pattern (characterized by a frequent intake of fruits, vegetables, and whole-meal bread) was associated with a decreased risk of cardiovascular mortality in Danish women.8 In recent studies including Asian populations, a vegetable-rich pattern10 and a pattern characterized by a frequent consumption of vegetables, fruit, soy ...
Definition. A bland diet provides foods that are not irritating to the digestive tract and do not increase the production of acids in the stomach. It is made up of foods that are soft, not spicy and low in fiber content.Also called, CAP-free diet, foods containing C-A-P are avoided which are:. C - Caffeine. A - Alcohol. P - Pepper. Indications of bland diet. A bland diet can be used to manage and treat peptic ulcers, heartburn, nausea and vomiting and flatulence or presence of gastric gases. Patients who underwent surgery of the stomach or intestines may also need to follow this dietary regimen. This diet is also ideal for patients with chronic gastritis, reflux esophagitis or dyspepsia, hemorrhoids and hyperacidity.. Mechanism of Action. The bland diet is created to decrease peristaltic activity of the gastrointestinal tract and prevent its irritation.. Bland Diet Guidelines B - Before changing to bland diet, check with a health care provider first. Like any menu, developing a bland diet needs ...
The departure from traditional lifestyles and the rising disease burden of mental disorders are increasing global health concerns. Changes in diet around the world mean that populations are now increasingly reliant on highly processed, poor quality foods, which have been linked to increased risk for mental disorder. Conversely, a nutrient-rich diet is understood to be protective of mental health, and researchers are now aiming to understand the biological underpinnings of this relationship. The gut microbiota has been proposed as a key mediator of this link, given its association with both diet and mental health. Importantly, several critical windows of opportunity for prevention and intervention have been identified, particularly early life and adolescence; these are periods of rapid development and transition that provide a foundation for future health. Strategies that promote overall diet quality, high in fiber and nutrients, have been linked to increased microbial diversity and gut health. ...
