Diet and risk of ethanol-induced hepatotoxicity: carbohydrate-fat relationships in rats. (1/3525)

Nutritional status is a primary factor in the effects of xenobiotics and may be an important consideration in development of safety standards and assessment of risk. One important xenobiotic consumed daily by millions of people worldwide is alcohol. Some adverse effects of ethanol, such as alcohol liver disease, have been linked to diet. For example, ethanol-induced hepatotoxicity in animal models requires diets that have a high percentage of the total calories as unsaturated fat. However, little attention has been given to the role of carbohydrates (or carbohydrate to fat ratio) in the effects of this important xenobiotic on liver injury. In the present study, adult male Sprague-Dawley rats (8-10/group) were infused (intragastrically) diets high in unsaturated fat (25 or 45% total calories), sufficient protein (16%) and ethanol (38%) in the presence or absence of adequate carbohydrate (21 or 2.5%) for 42-55 days (d). Animals infused ethanol-containing diets adequate in carbohydrate developed steatosis, but had no other signs of hepatic pathology. However, rats infused with the carbohydrate-deficient diet had a 4-fold increase in serum ALT levels (p < 0.05), an unexpectedly high (34-fold) induction of hepatic microsomal CYP2E1 apoprotein (p < 0.001), and focal necrosis. The strong positive association between low dietary carbohydrate, enhanced CYP2E1 induction and hepatic necrosis suggests that in the presence of low carbohydrate intake, ethanol induction of CYP2E1 is enhanced to levels sufficient to cause necrosis, possibly through reactive oxygen species and other free radicals generated by CYP2E1 metabolism of ethanol and unsaturated fatty acids.  (+info)

Fermentation substrate and dilution rate interact to affect microbial growth and efficiency. (2/3525)

The effect of dilution rate (D) on carbohydrate, fibrous and nonfibrous, and protein fermentation by ruminal microorganisms was studied using a single-effluent continuous-culture system. The diets of fibrous carbohydrate, nonfibrous carbohydrate, or protein were formulated with soybean hulls (FC), ground corn (NFC), or isolated soy protein (PR) as the primary ingredient, respectively. Six dilution rates (.025, .050, .075, .10, .15, and .20/h of fermenter volume) were used. Digestibilities of DM, OM, and CP for the three diets and of NDF and ADF for the FC diet decreased (P<.001) as D increased, although the response of the digestibility to D varied with diet. Increasing D resulted in an increase in pH (P<.001) and a decrease (P<.001) in ammonia concentration. Daily volatile fatty acid production increased (quadratic; P<.01) for the FC and NFC diets, but decreased (quadratic; P<.001) for the PR diet. Increasing D quadratically increased (P<.001) the molar percentage of acetate and propionate, but quadratically decreased (P<.001) butyrate and valerate for the FC and NFC diets. For the PR diet, the molar percentage of propionate and valerate increased (quadratic; P<.01), whereas acetate and butyrate decreased (linear; P<.001) in response to increasing D. Molar percentage of isobutyrate and isovalerate decreased (P<.01) with increasing D for all three diets. As D increased, daily microbial N production showed quadratic responses with maximum values achieved at .126, .143, and .187/h D for the FC, NFC, and PR diet, respectively. There was a positive correlation between microbial growth efficiency (MOEFF) and D. A quadratic model fit the data of MOEFF as affected by D, and maximum MOEFF of 37.3, 59.6, and 71.4 g of bacterial N/kg OM truly fermented were calculated to be achieved at .177, .314, and .207/h D for the FC, NFC, and PR diet, respectively. Dilution rate significantly influenced the ruminal microbial fermentation of fibrous and nonfibrous carbohydrates and proteins, and was positively related to microbial yield and growth efficiency. In addition, microbial nitrogen composition, and therefore efficiency, was affected by substrate fermented.  (+info)

Relationship between ruminal starch degradation and the physical characteristics of corn grain. (3/3525)

The objectives of this study were to determine the range of variation in the rate and extent of in situ ruminal starch degradation of 14 corns differing in vitreousness and to predict ruminal starch degradability by physical characteristics of corn grains. This study was conducted with eight dent and six flint corns. Ruminal starch degradability was determined by an in situ technique on 3-mm ground grains. Physical characteristics of corn grain were measured: hardness by grinding energy and particle size distribution, apparent and true densities, and specific surface area. Ruminal DM and starch degradabilities averaged 50 and 55.1% and varied from 39.7 to 71.5% and from 40.6 to 77.6%, respectively. Ruminal starch degradability averaged 61.9 and 46.2% in dent and flint types, respectively. The proportion of coarse particles (61.9 vs. 69.6% for dent and flint, respectively), the apparent density (1.29 vs. 1.36 g/cm3 for dent and flint, respectively), and the specific surface area (.13 vs. .07 m2/g for dent and flint, respectively) varied with the vitreousness. Ruminal starch degradability could be predicted accurately by vitreousness (r2 = .89) or by the combination of apparent density and 1,000-grain weight (R2 = .91), a measurement faster than the vitreousness determination.  (+info)

Macronutrient intake and change in mammographic density at menopause: results from a randomized trial. (4/3525)

To examine the effects of dietary fat intake on breast cancer risk, we are conducting a randomized trial of dietary intervention in women with extensive areas of radiologically dense breast tissue on mammography, a risk factor for breast cancer. Early results show that after 2 years on a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet there is a significant reduction in area of density, particularly in women going through menopause. In women who went through menopause during the 2-year follow-up, the mean decreases in area of density and percentage of density in the intervention group were 11.0 cm2 and 11.0%, respectively, whereas the control group decreased 4.5 cm2 and 5.2%. The purpose of this analysis was to determine whether changes in intake of specific macronutrients could account for the observed reduction in breast density in these women. Differences between 2-year and baseline values of macronutrients (averaged over 3 nonconsecutive days of food intake) were calculated. We examined the effect of dietary variables, adjusted for changes in total calorie intake and weight and for family history of breast cancer, on changes in area of density and percentage of density using linear regression. Reduction in total or saturated fat intake or cholesterol intake was significantly associated with decreased dense area (p < or = .004). The most significant dietary variable associated with reduction in percentage of density was reduction in dietary cholesterol intake (P = 0.001), although reducing saturated fat intake was of borderline significance (P = 0.05). The effect of the membership in the intervention and control groups on change in area of density or percentage of density was reduced by models that included changes in intake of any fat, or cholesterol, or carbohydrates. The observation of an effect of diet at menopause on breast density, a marker of increased risk of breast cancer, may be an indication that exposures at this time have an enhanced effect on subsequent risk.  (+info)

Ontogeny of intestinal safety factors: lactase capacities and lactose loads. (5/3525)

We measured intestinal safety factors (ratio of a physiological capacity to the load on it) for lactose digestion in developing rat pups. Specifically, we assessed the quantitative relationships between lactose load and the series capacities of lactase and the Na+-glucose cotransporter (SGLT-1). Both capacities increased significantly with age in suckling pups as a result of increasing intestinal mass and maintenance of mass-specific activities. The youngest pups examined (5 days) had surprisingly high safety factors of 8-13 for both lactase and SGLT-1, possibly because milk contains lactase substrates other than lactose; it also, however, suggests that their intestinal capacities were being prepared to meet future demands rather than just current ones. By day 10 (and also at day 15), increased lactose loads resulted in lower safety factors of 4-6, values more typical of adult intestines. The safety factor of SGLT-1 in day 30 (weanling) and day 100 (adult) rats was only approximately 1.0. This was initially unexpected, because most adult intestines maintain a modest reserve capacity beyond nutrient load values, but postweaning rats appear to use hindgut fermentation, assessed by gut morphology and hydrogen production assays, as a built-in reserve capacity. The series capacities of lactase and SGLT-1 varied in concert with each other over ontogeny and as lactose load was manipulated by experimental variation in litter size.  (+info)

Rapidly available glucose in foods: an in vitro measurement that reflects the glycemic response. (6/3525)

BACKGROUND: A chemically based classification of dietary carbohydrates that takes into account the likely site, rate, and extent of digestion is presented. The classification divides dietary carbohydrates into sugars, starch fractions, and nonstarch polysaccharides, and groups them into rapidly available glucose (RAG) and slowly available glucose (SAG) as to the amounts of glucose (from sugar and starch, including maltodextrins) likely to be available for rapid and slow absorption, respectively, in the human small intestine. OBJECTIVE: We hypothesize that RAG is an important food-related determinant of the glycemic response. DESIGN: The measurement of RAG, SAG, and starch fractions by an in vitro technique is described, based on the measurement by HPLC of the glucose released from a test food during timed incubation with digestive enzymes under standardized conditions. Eight healthy adult subjects consumed 8 separate test meals ranging in RAG content from 11 to 49 g. RESULTS: The correlation between glycemic response and RAG was highly significant (P < 0.0001) and a given percentage increase in RAG was associated with the same percentage increase in glycemic response. After subject variation was accounted for, RAG explained 70% of the remaining variance in glycemic response. CONCLUSIONS: We show the significance of in vitro measurements of RAG in relation to glycemic response in human studies. The simple in vitro measurement of RAG and SAG is of physiologic relevance and could serve as a tool for investigating the importance of the amount, type, and form of dietary carbohydrates for health.  (+info)

Composition of enteral diets and meals providing optimal absorption rates of nutrients in mini pigs. (7/3525)

BACKGROUND: Commercial enteral diets differ widely in nutrient composition. It is unknown whether the nutrient composition of the diets influences intestinal absorption. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of different enteral diets providing 60% of energy as carbohydrate, protein, or fat or 33.3% of energy from each nutrient on intestinal absorption in mini pigs. DESIGN: Kinetics of nutrient absorption were determined by perfusing a 150-cm jejunal segment. The kinetics of absorption were used to determine optimal relations between the absorption and recovery of each nutrient. From these data, the optimal nutrient composition of the diets providing complete absorption of the macronutrients in the shortest intestinal length was evaluated. Absorption of nutrients was further determined after oral administration of 4 corresponding meals. RESULTS: With all enteral diets, the absorption of nutrients displayed saturation kinetics. Absorption rates of carbohydrate were significantly larger than those of fat and protein. Consequently, the amounts of nutrients remaining unabsorbed per unit length of jejunum differed among the macronutrients. After administration of various test meals, the length of the small intestine required for complete absorption of the nutrients depended on the composition of the meals. The shortest intestinal length for complete absorption was needed for a diet providing 48% of energy as carbohydrate, 23% as protein, and 29% as fat. This composition closely matched the nutritional requirements. CONCLUSION: The nutrient composition of diets can optimize intestinal absorption. This may be especially important in patients with malabsorption or short-bowel syndrome.  (+info)

Response of adipose tissue lipoprotein lipase to the cephalic phase of insulin secretion. (8/3525)

Modulation of lipoprotein lipase (LPL) allows a tissue-specific partitioning of triglyceride-derived fatty acids, and insulin is a major modulator of its activity. The present studies were aimed to assess in rats the contribution of insulin to the response of adipose tissue and muscle LPL to food intake. Epididymal and retroperitoneal adipose LPL rose 65% above fasting values as early as 1 h after the onset of a 30-min high-carbohydrate meal, with a second activity peak 1 h later that was maintained for an additional 2 h. Soleus muscle LPL was decreased by 25% between 0.5 and 4 h after meal intake. The essential contribution of insulin to the LPL response to food intake was determined by preventing the full insulin response to meal intake by administration of diazoxide (150 mg/kg body wt, in the meal). The usual postprandial changes in adipose and muscle LPL did not occur in the absence of an increase in insulinemia. However, the early (60 min) increase in adipose tissue LPL was not prevented by the drug, likely because of the maintenance of the early centrally mediated phase of insulin secretion. In a subsequent study, rats chronically implanted with a gastric cannula were used to demonstrate that the postprandial rise in adipose LPL is independent of nutrient absorption and can be elicited by the cephalic (preabsorptive) phase of insulin secretion. Obese Zucker rats were used because of their strong cephalic insulin response. After an 8-h fast, rats were fed a liquid diet ad libitum (orally, cannula closed), sham fed (orally, cannula opened), or fed directly into the stomach via the cannula during 4 h. Insulinemia increased 10-fold over fasting levels in ad libitum- and intragastric-fed rats and threefold in sham-fed rats. Changes in adipose tissue LPL were proportional to the elevation in plasma insulin levels, demonstrating that the cephalic-mediated rise in insulinemia, in the absence of nutrient absorption, stimulates adipose LPL. These results demonstrate the central role of insulin in the postprandial response of tissue LPL, and they show that cephalically mediated insulin secretion is able to stimulate adipose LPL.  (+info)

The association between dietary carbohydrate intake and colorectal cancer (CRC) risk remains controversial. We therefore conducted this meta-analysis to assess the relationship between them. A literature search from the databases of PubMed, Embase, Web of Science and Medline was performed for available articles published in English (up to September 2016). Pooled relative risk (RR) with 95% confidence interval (CI) was calculated to evaluate the association between dietary carbohydrate intake and CRC risk. The random-effect model (REM) was selected as the pooling method. Publication bias was estimated using Eggers regression asymmetry test and funnel plot. A total of 17 articles involving 14402 CRC patients and 846004 participants were eligible with the inclusion criteria in this meta-analysis. The pooled RR with 95% CI of dietary carbohydrate intake for CRC, colon cancer and rectum cancer risk were 1.08 (95% CI =0.93-1.23, I2 =68.3%, Pheterogeneity,0.001), 1.09 (95% CI =0.95-1.25, I2 =48.3%) ...

Bodybuilders have used different carbohydrate loading regimens in conjunction with resistance exercise prior to competition in the belief that this would result in increased muscle size. To investigate this possibility, muscle girth measurements were obtained from nine weight-trained males before and after a control (standard isocaloric diet) and an experimental trial (carbohydrate loading). The latter regimen consisted of 3 days of intense weight-lifting while the subjects ingested a diet of 10% carbohydrate (CHO), 57% fat (F), and 33% protein (P), followed by 3 days of light weight-lifting and a day of rest while ingesting a diet of 80% CHO, 5% F, and 15% P. The control trial consisted of an identical weight-lifting regimen while subjects ingested an isocaloric (45 kcal/kg BWIday) diet. Body weight and girths (forearm, upper arm, chest, thigh, waist, and calf) were obtained before and after each trial in a relaxed and flexed state. The results indicated that an exercise/carbohydrate loading ...
The present thesis describes the impact of glycaemic index of high carbohydrate diets consumed for 5 days on exercise energy metabolism and capacity and fasting plasma lipids in healthy physically active individuals. The thesis consists of a literature review (Chapter 1), general methods (Chapter 2), four experimental chapters (Chapter 3-Chapter 6) and general discussion and conclusion (Chapter 7). Chapter 3 presents a pilot study aimed to investigate whether high carbohydrate meals with high and low glycaemic index of foods present within meals developed by using the glycaemic index values from the published glycaemic index tables, produce significant differences in postprandial glucose response. Eight healthy active women consumed prescribed high carbohydrate diets with either high or low glycaemic index in a randomised counterbalanced order. The experimental meals which consisted of breakfast, morning snack and lunch were consumed after an overnight fast. Plasma glucose responses were ...

Simple carbohydrates (sugars), such as glucose and fructose, are high in calorie content and low in nutritional value. These are called simple because they contain only one sugar molecule.. Unfortunately the sweet taste they provide is something that many people enjoy, crave and over indulge in. Some studies have shown that simple carbohydrates are more addictive than cocaine and the U.S. is facing a national health crisis due to this problem, especially in our children.. Concentrated sugars have only been in the human diet for about 2000 years. Our taste buds and pleasure centers in our brain have not evolved to be able to handle this. They create a supernormal stimulus hijacking our pleasure centers making us want to come back for more, hence their addictive potential. Sugars in whole fruits also stimulate our pleasure centers quite a bit, but to a much lesser degree than these refined sugars.. ...

Led by James Gangwisch of the Department of Psychiatry at Columbia University Medical Center, the study looked at the dietary glycemic index, glycemic load, types of carbohydrates consumed and depression in data from more than 70,000 postmenopausal women who participated in the National Institutes of Healths Womens Health Initiative Observational Study between 1994 and 1998.. Consumption of carbohydrates increases blood sugar levels to varying degrees, depending on the type of food ingested. The more highly refined the carbohydrate, the higher its score on the glycemic index (GI) scale. The GI scale, which goes from 0-100, measures the amount of sugar found in the blood after eating. Refined foods such as white bread, white rice, and soda trigger a hormonal response in the body to reduce blood sugar levels. This response may also cause or exacerbate mood changes, fatigue and other symptoms of depression.. The investigators found that progressively higher dietary GI scores and consumption of ...

Definition of high-carbohydrate diet in the Legal Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is high-carbohydrate diet? Meaning of high-carbohydrate diet as a legal term. What does high-carbohydrate diet mean in law?
Carbohydrate Loading. Carbohydrates are the bodys primary source of energy during high intensity exercise. Upon consumption, carbohydrates are broken down to glucose and metabolized for energy. Unused glucose is stored as glycogen in the liver and muscles. After the body has utilized carbohydrate reserves, glycogen is synthesized back into glucose to be used as the alternative source of energy. It is upon this premise that carbo-loading is practiced to improve and sustain athletic performance.. Carbo-loading is the super-compensation of glycogen stores. It is the expectation of carbo-loading that the excess glucose will be converted to glycogen and stored in the liver and muscles. This over abundance of glycogen stores will become the readily available fuel source. Benefits of Carbo-loading. Because glycogen stores are typically not abundant, energy is often halted upon utilization. Thus, an athlete is said to have hit the wall. Carbo-loading maximizes the bodys ability to store ...
Nondiabetic women who were overweight/obese (n=245) were randomly assigned to a lower fat (20% energy), higher carbohydrate (65% energy) diet; a lower carbohydrate (45% energy), higher fat (35% energy) diet; or a walnut-rich (18% energy), higher fat (35% energy), lower carbohydrate (45% energy) diet. All groups lost weight at follow-up (P,0.0001), with mean (SEM) percent loss of 9.2(1.1)% in lower fat, 6.5(0.9)% in lower carbohydrate, and 8.2(1.0)% in walnut-rich groups at 12months. The diet×time×insulin resistance status interaction was not statistically significant in the model for overall weight loss, although insulin sensitive women at 12months lost more weight in the lower fat vs. lower carbohydrate group (7.5kg vs. 4.3kg, P=0.06), and in the walnut-rich vs. lower carbohydrate group (8.1kg vs. 4.3kg, P=0.04). Sex hormone binding globulin increased within each group except in the lower carbohydrate group at 12months (P,0.01). C-reactive protein and interleukin-6 decreased at follow-up in ...
Farmed seabass have higher adiposity than their wild counterparts and this is often attributed to carbohydrate (CHO) feeding. Whether this reflects a reduction in fat oxidation, increased de novo lipogenesis (DNL), or both, is not known. To study the effects of high CHO diets on hepatic TG biosynthesis, hepatic TG deuterium (2H) enrichment was determined following 6 days in 2H-enriched tank water for fish fed with a no-CHO control diet (CTRL), and diets with digestible starch (DS) and raw starch (RS). Hepatic fractional synthetic rates (FSRs, percent per day-1) were calculated for hepatic TG-glyceryl and FA moieties through 2H NMR analysis. Glyceryl FSRs exceeded FA FSRs in all cases, indicating active cycling. DS fish did not show increased lipogenic potential compared to CTRL. RS fish had lower glyceryl FSRs compared with the other diets and negligible levels of FA FSRs despite similar hepatic TG levels to CTRL. DS-fed fish showed higher activity for enzymes that can provide NADPH for ...
One word: fiber. Well, its actually more like fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants!. Refined carbohydrates like cookies, donuts, and even white bread contain added sugars and fats that will stifle your goal to eat healthy food and lose weight. In addition, refined carbs may contain hydrogenated vegetable oils, additional fat, and processed sugars. Eating refined carbs like a cookie in the morning will neither give you the energy nor give you the nutrition to maintain a balanced body.. On the other hand, while fruits contain sugar, they also contain other nutrients that slow down the absorption rate of that sugar. These are known as complex carbohydrates, and they are the healthier sort of carbs. These foods contain the vitamins and minerals necessary to efficiently convert into slow-releasing energy. Though refined carbohydrates are broken down into the bloodstream quickly, the fiber-rich carbs found in fruit are broken down more slowly, and thus prevent the sugar rush and crash.. For ...
On another topic, Cynthia and David state: And carbohydrate consumption always causes blood insulin levels to spike, which has a whole series of negative consequences. I dont know if they have read An insulin index of foods: The insulin demand generated by 1000 kJ portions of common foods (7). This project demonstrated that protein-rich foods also cause insulin levels to rise, due to insulin also having a function of clearing amino acids from the blood stream. The insulin scores for beef and fish exceed those for several high carbohydrate foods (white pasta, brown pasta, porridge) and are comparable to others (brown rice, whole grain bread). While in general it is true that limiting carbohydrate reduces insulin responses, I would caution anyone against stating broadly that carbohydrate consumption always causes blood insulin levels to spike, without specifying what type of carbohydrate. Since dietary protein also causes release of insulin in amounts comparable to some carbohydrate ...

On the flip side, a diet heavier in simple carbohydrates may result in lower quality of sleep. Simple carbohydrates are naturally found in fruit and dairy. Theyre also added to some packaged foods, baked goods, and energy drinks. Since we often strive for a non-restrictive outlook on food, there is no need to completely avoid food sources of simple carbohydrates. Rather, aim to incorporate more complex carbohydrates, especially whole grains, when possible. Here are some sleep-promoting food combos to try:. ...
Low-carbohydrate diets or low carb diets, are food diet programs for dietary health as well as weight loss that advocate restricted carbohydrate consumption, based on research that ties carbohydrate consumption with increased blood insulin levels, and increased insulin with obesity.Under these various dietary programs, foods containing carbohydrates (like sugar, grains, and starches) are limited or ...
Its good when we can debate about something, but its a little bit better, sometimes, when you have a strong opinion about a tough issue such as diabetes and its procedures. You can read my history throughout the attached text, but the summary is: Most of us ought to use a different carbohydrate ratio for different times of breakfast - during work days when you wake up at the same time, day by day, the ratio would be the same, but if the same stretch (working days) you are late e decide to have breakfast at the companys brakeroom, one hour after your normal time, your carbohydrate ratio probably WILL BE DIFFERENT.

Whether you call them simple carbohydrates or sugars, consuming too many of them may make you more likely to gain weight. According to an article published in
There are several types of diets that differ only in the recommended daily intake of carbohydrates. Acceptable limits are from 20 to 250 grams, but it is better to stop at a value of 40-50. With such a daily amount of carbohydrates, you can achieve rapid weight loss without harming the intestines and stomach.. Before composing an individual diet for a carbohydrate-free diet, it is necessary to calculate the bodys need for calories. There are different calculation schemes, but we will take the Harris-Benedict formula. To calculate the norm according to it, you need to know only three values: weight (kg), age (years) and height (cm). Different indicators are given for men and women.. The daily calorie requirement (basal metabolic rate, BMR) in men is calculated as follows:. BMR = 88.36 + (13.4 x weight) + (4.8 x height) - (5.7 x age). Example: a 35-year-old man weighs 90 kg and is 178 cm tall.. BMR = 88.36 + (13.4 x 90) + (4.8 x 178) - (5.7 x 35) = 1949.5 kcal.. Womens Daily Calorie Requirement ...
Recently, high carbohydrate diets were recommended for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. All aspects of these diets, however, have not been fully tested - particularly in insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). The present study was designed to investigate the effects of high carbohydrate, low fat diets (HCLFD) on blood glucose regulation, lipoprotein and apoprotein concentrations and nutritional status in IDDM. Six women with IDDM were studied in the Clinical Research Center for ten weeks. The study was divided into a control diet (CD) with 45% CHO, 40% fat, and 15% protein for four weeks, and a HCLFD with 65% CHO, 20% fat, and 15% protein for six weeks. Subjects were allowed free selection of their carbohydrate and fiber sources during both diet periods. The resulting selections produced diets with approximately equal proportions of complex and simple carbohydrates (49% and 51%, respectively) and moderate quantities of dietary fiber (50 g) during the HCLFD. Weekly fasting and ...
Recreational exercisers who are normoglycemic and who do LC intermittently tend to increase the size of their liver glycogen tank over time, via compensatory adaptation, and also use more fat (and ketones, which are byproducts of fat metabolism) as sources of energy. Somewhat paradoxically, these folks benefit from regular high carbohydrate intake days (e.g., once a week, or on exercise days), since their liver glycogen tanks will typically store more glycogen. If they keep their liver and muscle glycogen tanks half empty all the time, compensatory adaptation suggests that both their liver and muscle glycogen tanks will over time become smaller, and that their muscles will store more fat ...
Desrosiers said, We already know that maternal diet before and during early pregnancy plays a significant role in fetal development. What is new about this study is its suggestion that low carbohydrate intake could increase the risk of having a baby with a neural tube defect by 30 percent. This is concerning because low carbohydrate diets are fairly popular.. She insisted that the finding reinforces the importance for women who may become pregnant to talk to their health care provider about any special diets or eating behaviors they practice.. Folic acid is an essential nutrient that minimizes the risk of neural tube defects. In 1998 the Food and Drug Administration began requiring that folic acid be added to enriched grain products.. Desrosiers and her study collaborators found that dietary intake of folic acid among women with restricted carbohydrate intake was less than half of other women.. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that all women who may become pregnant ...
Plants are the primary carbohydrate source. Following their harvest, many of them are found on the market in their natural state. Others are directed towards factories and go through various processes, thus becoming processed foods. There are two carbohydrate types: simple and complex. Vegetables, seeds and cereals are rich in complex carbohydrates. These are divided into two other categories: polysaccharides and oligosaccharides.. By being more complicated in structure, they are digested and absorbed into the bloodstream at a slower rate than simple carbohydrates. Due to their ability to gradually release energy and for longer time periods, they are considered as healthier than monosaccharides and disaccharides. Vegetables in particular are low glycemic index foods. This means they can counterbalance the adverse effects of cholesterol. As opposed to them, simple carbohydrates are found in the structure of high glycemic index foods. They enter the bloodstream without needing to be ...
To exploit the fact that cancer cells rely more heavily on glycolysis than normal cells, we designed low CHO, high protein diets to see if we could limit BG and tumor growth. In designing our diets, we wanted to avoid NCKDs because of the difficulty in achieving long-term compliance with no CHO diets in potential future human studies (27) and because Masko and colleagues recently reported that a 10% or 20% CHO diet slows tumor growth as effectively as NCKDs (27). Following early studies with 8% CHO diets, using 10% and 15% CHO, high protein diets in which 70% of the CHO was in the form of amylose, we found that, compared with a Western diet, they were indeed capable of reducing BG, insulin, and lactate levels and, importantly, in slowing the growth of implanted murine and human tumors, with little or no effects on mouse weight.. We assessed the effects of our low CHO diets in both murine tumor-bearing immunocompetent mice and human tumor-bearing immunocompromised mice, because immune status has ...
This report is interesting and important for physicians to be aware of, but the major concepts are absolutely predictable with a basic understanding of serum cholesterol responses to carbohydrates in the diet. Simply stated, when people eat carbohydrates their HDL (good cholesterol) goes down and their triglycerides go up. This is uncontroversial, and so consistent that researchers use triglycerides and HDL as objective measures of carbohydrate consumption. Dr. Frank Sacks of Harvard Medical School explains in a recent paper on low carbohydrate diets that HDL is a biomarker for dietary carbohydrate. High triglycerides and low HDL means the subjects are eating lots of carbs. The AHAs report confirms this as well, explaining that very high intakes of carbohydrate (,60% of calories) is accompanied by a reduction in HDL cholesterol and a rise in triglyceride ...
The American Journal of Epidemiology on Association between Eating Patterns and Obesity in a Free-living US Adult Population: Finally, subjects who eat late in the evening may increase the amount of glucose stored in muscle as glycogen (7). In humans, muscle glycogen fluctuates in accordance with periods of muscle activity and subsequent carbohydrate consumption. Data suggest that the consumption of carbohydrate-rich foods in the late evening leads to increased glycogen levels in the muscles (7). Unless this stored glycogen is burned as fuel, it will ultimately be stored as fat. Therefore, consumption of late-evening meals with carbohydrate-rich foods may also be related to obesity through its effect on hormonal regulation of energy and lipid metabolism. ...

Popular weight loss strategies often prescribe a targeted reduction of dietary carbohydrate or fat. But surprisingly, no controlled human feeding study has ever investigated the effects of a selective reduction of dietary carbohydrate versus fat while keeping the other dietary macronutrients at their baseline weight-maintenance values. The present study was designed to address this knowledge gap and improve our understanding of how selective reduction of dietary fat versus carbohydrate may differentially impact the many feedback control processes that act to resist weight loss.. After several days of eating a weight-maintenance diet, 20 obese adult volunteers (BMI above 30 kg/m2) will be admitted to the metabolic clinical research unit (MCRU) and, after 5 additional days of the baseline diet, their diets will be modified to result in either 85% reduction of the baseline dietary fat or a 60% reduction of the baseline dietary carbohydrate for the next 6 days. These diet modifications produce an ...

This study examined the association between glycemic control and cognitive performance under fasting conditions and the impact of acute carbohydrate consumption on cognitive function in adults with type 2 diabetes. The results demonstrate a negative relationship between measures of glycemic control, specifically HbA1c and fasting glucose, and fasting cognitive performance such that individuals in poorer glycemic control show poorer performance on tests of verbal recall. Although memory improvement was observed immediately after carbohydrate consumption, similar to that observed in healthy older adults, this was followed by impairment in performance.. The associations observed between fasting cognitive performance and measures of glucoregulatory status in study participants is consistent with a direct impact of type 2 diabetes on central nervous system functioning. Similar associations between HbA1c and cognitive functions have been observed by some but not others (2). Problematic to ...

Some low-carbohydrate diet advocates argue that the obesity epidemic was caused by US dietary guidelines that emphasize a carbohydrate-rich diet*. The idea here is that the increase in calorie intake was due to the diet shifting in a more carbohydrate-heavy direction. In other words, theyre hypothesizing that a carbohydrate-rich eating style increases food intake, which increases body fatness**. According to this hypothesis, if we had received advice to eat a fat-rich diet instead, we wouldnt be in the midst of an obesity epidemic ...
Carbohydrates are the next macronutrient on our list. Like protein, carbohydrate provides 4kcal per gram. Carbs, as they are colloquially called, are comprised of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. More specifically, they are made up of CH2O, or hydrates of carbon. Carbon hydrates, carbohydrates. Pretty neat. For this reason, they are sometimes abbreviated CHO. CHO are often categorized based on their size: simple carbohydrates and complex carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates are mono and disaccharid
How many of you guys have different , carbohydrate ratios throughout the day? , Ribeiro I have posted a numer of times that I too have different rates throughout the day. The first response is that it must be a problem with the basals. You should first determine that your basals are correct, usually by doing a fast of at least 18 hours. If your bgs remain stable, or drop a little, then they should be alright. The best (only?) way to get the carb rates correct is by experimentatiion. Use foods with a known carb content and try to eat the same food at different times of the day. In this way you can determine your bodies response at the various times of the day (YMMV). I use 3 different rates. Ten grams/unit for breakfast, 8/unit for lunch and 6/unit for dinner. For me, these will continually change. They are currently dropping in the rates for later in the day, probably because I am trying different sites besides my stomach. I am getting better rates at the new sites. -- Jack Granowski email @ ...
All our energy comes from carbohydrates because the muscles get their glycogen which they use for energy from the breakdown of carbohydrates. But eating carbs in order to help you gain muscle needs to be carefully considered as eating simple sugars is definitely not the answer.. We need to understand the difference between a simple carbohydrate and a complex carbohydrate. All simple carbohydrates are sugars like glucose, fructose and sucrose which are just one or two molecules attached to a sugar molecule. Complex carbohydrates are made of three or more sugar molecules and will include all starches as well as any fiber.. Complex carbohydrates take longer to break down into glucose so this means that the use of glucose for normal bodily functions and any activity done means that it will be able to be sustained for a longer period of time. The effect when trying to build muscle will be radically changed when glucose is gotten from complex carbs as opposed to simple carbs.. For example a person ...

ad_1]. Many diets today focus on low carbohydrate foods which can help you lose weight very quickly. As a matter of fact there are a large amount of diets that concentrate on nothing but taking out carbohydrates from your diet almost completely. Here is a list of low carb diet plans; Atkins diet, Protein Power, Carbohydrate Addicts, the Zone diet, CKD, and SommerSizing. You may be wondering why so much fuss about low carb diets, well low carbohydrate diets are based on the theory that carbohydrates raise blood sugar levels, and it is this rise in blood glucose levels that triggers insulin production. It is this Insulin spike that many believe to be the main cause of fat storage in todays society, as many of the carbohydrates that are eaten are high glycemic carbs which basically means they cause a rapid spike in insulin levels. Low carbohydrate diets are advertised as being very healthy but there are potential health risks with cutting out the majority of your carbs and increasing you protein ...
Low carbohydrate diets are often designed for fast weight loss. This is rarely effective in the long term because it is achieved mainly by loss of water and lean mass. The water is rapidly regained when normal eating is resumed. As well as being ineffective, these diets produce ketones (see also ketogenic diets) which can be harmful. Therefore, such diets should only be taken under medical supervision. Low carbohydrate diets can also increase blood cholesterol levels, cause hypoglycaemia, and disrupt the balance of minerals. The diets rarely provide sufficient nutrients and are usually difficult to follow.. Some people reduce their carbohydrate intake in the mistaken belief that carbohydrates are as fattening as pure fats. However, less fatty tissue is made by eating 2000 Calories of carbohydrates than by eating 2000 Calories of pure fat. Fat overeaters tend to put on weight more easily and to be overweight for longer than carbohydrate overeaters. Stated simply, excess fats are more fattening ...
AbstractSilver sea bream, Sparus sarba, were fed two diets of different carbohydrate levels (2 and 20% dextrin) for 4 weeks, and the effects on organ indices, liver composition, serum metabolite and hormone levels and gene expression profile of key enzymes of carbohydrate metabolism in the liver were investigated. By using real-time PCR, mRNA expression levels of carbohydrate metabolic enzymes including glucokinase (GK, glycolysis), glucose-6-phosphatase (G6Pase, gluconeogenesis), glycogen synthase (GS, glycogenesis), glycogen phosphorylase (GP, glycogenolysis) and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH, pentose phosphate pathway) in liver of sea bream have been examined, and it was found that high dietary carbohydrate level increased mRNA level of GK but decreased mRNA levels of G6Pase and GP. However, mRNA levels of GS and G6PDH were not significantly influenced by dietary carbohydrate. Silver sea bream fed high dietary carbohydrate had higher hepatosomatic index (HSI), liver glycogen and ...
Fructose consumption has increased exponentially during the past four decades. The physiological effects of a high fructose diet include obesity and insulin resistance. In animal models, the effects of a high fructose diet on fat distribution are inconclusive in that some studies find increases in body mass and lipids while others find no effect. Recent findings indicate that a high fructose diet causes hippocampal insulin resistance in hamsters, raising the possibility that the diet causes impairments in cognition. The following experiments tested the hypotheses that a high fructose diet alters fat distribution rather than total body mass and impairs hippocampal-dependent memory. Results indicated that the high fructose diet did not affect fat distribution, but did increase plasma triacylglycerides. Interestingly, the diet also impaired spatial reference memory in the Morris water maze, and this effect was correlated with plasma triacylglycerides. These results indicate that a high fructose diet
Apelin, as an adipokine, plays an important role in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. This study aimed to determine whether the quality and quantity of dietary carbohydrates were associated with apelin gene expression in subcutaneous and visceral adipose tissues. In this cross-sectional study, 102 adults who underwent minor abdominal surgery were selected. Approximately 100 mg of subcutaneous and visceral adipose tissues were collected during the surgery to measure apelin gene expression. Anthropometric measurment, blood samples, and dietary intakes were collected before surgery. The dietary carbohydrate intake, glycemic index (GI), and glycemic load (GL) were determined. The average apelin concentration was 269.6 ± 98.5(pg/mL), and 16.3% of participants were insulin resistant. There was a correlation between insulin (p-value = 0.043), Homeostatic Model Assessment for Insulin Resistance (HOMA-IR)(p-value = 0.045) and apelin gene expression in visceral adipose tissue. There was

The other day I was advising a new client on adopting a low carbohydrate diet when she became extremely resistant to the idea because, as she said, Eating low carbohydrate causes your body to create ketones and go into ketosis which is very dangerous. Unfortunately, my client is being led astray by misinformation. Yes, when…
Low carbohydrate diets have been very popular recently. Many people today are going on variations of the high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet. Describe what happens in the body when only proteins and fat are ingested but.
Another type of carbohydrates includes foods that are comprised of whole grains. It is very difficult to break them and thus the inclusion of glucose in blood stream becomes slow.. Overview of Low-Carbohydrate Diets. Low- carbohydrate diets are those diets that contain very limited amount of carbohydrate in them. There are different types of low-carbohydrate diets such as Atkins Diet that contains low carbohydrate and high fat contents; the South Beach Diet contains a balance between fat and carbohydrate; and the Zone Diet involves the consumption of proper ratios of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. Low-carbohydrate regimens such as the Atkins[1] and South Beach diets[2] have become increasingly popular-they dont require exercise, allow unlimited caloric intake and are relatively effective.. The Zone Diet, as described by Barry Scars. PhD focuses upon a balanced diet with approximately 40 percent protein in the diet, 30 percent carbohydrates and 30 percent fats. Dr. Sears asserts that this ...
Glycemic index diet is a general term for weight-loss diets that are based on your blood sugar level. Many popular commercial diets, diet books and diet websites revolve around the glycemic index, including Nutrisystem, the Zone diet and Sugar Busters. A glycemic index diet uses the glycemic index to guide your eating plan and was originally developed to help improve blood sugar control in diabetes. The glycemic index classifies carbohydrate-containing foods according to their potential to raise your blood sugar level. The glycemic index diet is not a true low-carbohydrate diet because you dont have to count carbohydrates (carbs). Nor is it a low-fat diet. It also doesnt require you to reduce portion sizes or count calories. But the glycemic index diet does steer you toward certain types of carbs.. Purpose. Diets based on the glycemic index suggest that you eat foods and beverages with low glycemic index rankings to help you keep your blood sugar balanced. Proponents say this will help you ...
Insulin Response in Low Carbohydrate Diets With the current popularity of the Atkins diet and similar plans that emphasize a reduced intake of carbohydrates,...
Since 1860, and more recently, in 1972, low carbohydrate (low-carb) diets have been a strategy for weight loss. Today, there continues to be an interest in low-carb approaches. While all low carbohydrate approaches reduce the overall intake of carbohydrates, there is no clear consensus on what defines a low-carb diet. There are three macronutrients-carbohydrates (4 kcal/gm), fat (9 kcal/gm), and protein (4 kcal/gm) found in food. Therefore, studies have defined low carbohydrate as a percent of daily macronutrient intake or total daily carbohydrate load. We will define it here as:
• Carbohydrate digestion concludes in microvilli of the small intestine, in brush border epithelial cells. Carbohydrate digestion -brush border enzymes • Four brush-border enzymes are involved: • Alpha-dextrinase breaks down alpha-dextrin chains by removing glucose units. • Sucrase breaks sucrose into glucose and fructose. • Maltase breaks maltose and maltotriose into glucose. • Lactase breaks lactose into glucose and galactose. • The final end products of carbohydrate digestion are glucose, fructose, and galactose. • All end products of carbohydrate digestion (glucose, fructose, and galactose) are absorbed as monosaccharides. • Carbohydrates are ultimately absorbed into capillaries of the villi. • Facilitated diffusion: • Transports fructose from lumen into epithelial cells of intestinal villi. • Transports monosaccharides out of epithelial cells into the interstitial fluid. • The monosaccharide eventually diffuses into the blood stream without using
It is widely held that the primary instigator of diabetes is sugar, which has led to recommendations to eat a low carbohydrate diet and avoid sugar at all costs, including fruit. Sugar and unhealthy carbohydrates from things like pastries, cakes, cookies, doughnuts, and candy are indeed bad for us
Hepatitis C viraemia is carbohydrate-dependent because the virus piggy-backs on triglyceride assembly and VLDL exocytosis. This makes a very low carbohydrate diet an effective way to control HCV viraemia, HCV-associated autoimmune syndromes, and steatosis. HCV cell entry is via LDL-receptor complex, therefore diets intended to lower LDL via upregulation of the LDL-receptor by restricting saturated fat and increasing polyunsaturated fat will increase hepatocellular infection. ...

Results At high dietary carbohydrate content, the low- compared with high-glycemic index level decreased insulin sensitivity from 8.9 to 7.1 units (−20%, P = .002); increased LDL cholesterol from 139 to 147 mg/dL (6%, P ≤ .001); and did not affect levels of HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, or blood pressure. At low carbohydrate content, the low- compared with high-glycemic index level did not affect the outcomes except for decreasing triglycerides from 91 to 86 mg/dL (−5%, P = .02). In the primary diet contrast, the low-glycemic index, low-carbohydrate diet, compared with the high-glycemic index, high-carbohydrate diet, did not affect insulin sensitivity, systolic blood pressure, LDL cholesterol, or HDL cholesterol but did lower triglycerides from 111 to 86 mg/dL (−23%, P ≤ .001). ...
The glycemic index, a measure of how much a specific carbohydrate food raises blood sugar, is another darling of the diet-health literature. On the surface, it makes sense: if excess blood sugar is harmful, then foods that increase blood sugar should be harmful. Despite evidence from observational studies, controlled trials as long as 1.5 years have shown that the glycemic index does not influence insulin sensitivity or body fat gain (2, 3, 4). The observational studies may be confounded by the fact that white flour and sugar are the two main high-glycemic foods in most Western diets. Most industrially processed carbohydrate foods also have a high glycemic index, but that doesnt imply that their high glycemic index is the reason theyre harmful ...

Several recent studies indicate that a low-carbohydrate diet is effective at improving glycemia. A few studies have shown that in non-diabetic individuals, low-carbohydrate diets were more effective than higher carbohydrate diets at improving fasting serum glucose [13,14] and insulin [6,14-16], and at improving insulin sensitivity as measured by the homeostasis model [6]. One of these studies also included diabetic patients and noted a comparative improvement in hemoglobin A1c after 6 months (low fat diet: 0.0 ± 1.0%; low carbohydrate diet: -0.6 ± 1.2%, p = 0.06) [6] and 12 months (low fat diet: -0.1 ± 1.6%; low carbohydrate diet: -0.7 ± 1.0%, p = 0.019) duration [5]. In a 5-week crossover feeding study, 8 men with type 2 diabetes had greater improvement in fasting glucose, 24-hour glucose area-under-the-curve (AUC), 24-hour insulin AUC, and glycohemoglobin while on the low-carbohydrate diet than when on a eucaloric low-fat diet [7]. In a 14-day inpatient feeding study, 10 participants with ...
There is concern that very low carbohydrate diets, especially diets high in saturated fat, might lead to insulin resistance; however we observed a significant reduction in insulin resistance after the very low-carbohydrate diet as measured by the homeostatic model assessment technique [16], which uses fasting levels of glucose and insulin. Adaptation to a three-week very low carbohydrate diet (8% carbohydrate, 75% fat) in healthy subjects resulted in no change in resting or insulin-stimulated total glucose disposal [36]. There was however a significant decrease in insulin-stimulated glucose oxidation and a proportional increase in nonoxidative glucose metabolism, presumably glycogen formation [36]. This study also showed that insulin-stimulated suppression of lipid oxidation was nearly prevented (i.e., insulin was ineffective at inhibiting oxidation of fat) after a low carbohydrate diet compared to an 80% reduction after a standard diet [36]. Similar results were obtained in healthy men who ...
In 1981 the phrase Glycemic index was exposed. This is the premise for several recent in style diets such as the South Beach Diet plan. The Glycemic Index determines how long certain carbohydrates take to assimilate. Foods with a high Glycemic Index take the longest time to break down. They are doing the foremost damage to the system of somebody with diabetes. The low glycemic index foods are more desirable not solely for diabetics, but for anyone who is watching their carbohydrate ingestion. Sensible glycemic foods tend to absorb gradually into the system, permitting the body to break down the refined sugars and starches so that the body can absorb them in the proper way. Folks with Type I and Type II diabetes have a troublesome time digesting carbohydrates, particularly those that are high on the glycemic index, and this lack of proper digestion makes it difficult for the diabetic to push out glucose from their blood,. While the majority of diabetics are prudent to avoid most, if not all ...
It is considered that very low carbohydrate diets partially mimic the fasting state. In a 2015 randomised cross-over study by Nuttall et al, 7 men and women with untreated type 2 diabetes were placed on a control diet (55% CHO, 15% PRO, 30% FAT), a carbohydrate-free diet (3% CHO, 15% PRO, 82% FAT), or fasted for 3 days.[18] On the third day of the carbohydrate-free phase, overnight fasted blood glucose concentrations were 160 mg/dl compared with 196 mg/dl in the standard diet and 127 mg/dl in the fasting phases. Carbohydrate restriction also led to a rapid drop in post-prandial glucose concentrations and glucose area-under-the curve decreased by 35% in the carbohydrate-free phase compared to the standard diet. It was found that carbohydrate restriction accounted for 50% of the reduction in overnight glucose concentrations and 71% of the reduction in integrated glucose concentrations in the fasted phase compared with the standard diet phase. It is notable that human depot fat, which is the major ...

5. Avoid refined carbohydrates: The average American gets 50% of his or her calories from refined carbohydrates. Refined carbohydrates are grains that have had the fiber, vitamin E, B vitamins, bran and germ removed. In other words, the nutrients have been removed and you are left with the starch. They create all of the same health problems created by refined sugar.. Refined carbohydrates fill you up-but not with vitamins and minerals. This stresses your digestive system and your endocrine system. Eating refined carbohydrates uses up precious vitamins and minerals.. Often people eat refined carbohydrates because they are low in fat and mistakenly think that because they are complex carbohydrates that they are actually good for you.. Refined carbohydrates include white bread, white rice, and pasta that are not labeled whole grain. Read the labels on bread. Brown-colored bread labeled wheat bread isnt usually whole wheat. If the label says enriched, white flour on it youre not getting a whole ...
Every so often someone will ask me about Glycemic Index.. What is glycemic index?, you ask. Glycemic Index(GI) was invented in 1981 by researchers Dr. Thomas Wolever and Dr. David Jenkins who were able to prove certain carbohydrates raise blood glucose(sugar) levels higher than other carbohydrates. Participants were given 25 grams of carbohydrates and based on the results foods were ranked from 0 to 100. High Glycemic Index(GI) food made blood sugar spike faster and low GI food absorbed carbohydrates at a slower rate. According to glycemic professionals, people with diabetes should aim for food with a glycemic index of 55 or less. Fat and fiber helps decrease a foods glycemic index so dont be afraid to add either to decrease your blood sugar(glucose) load. Many people with diabetes, hyperlipidemia and who just want to lose weight have food success using the glycemic index . There are many websites with tips on how to decrease your glycemic load and look for foods labeled GI for more ...
Glomerular capillary basement membrane thickness (BMT) was measured in 23 rats which had had streptozocin-induced diabetes for 14 months and in 12 age-matched controls. Diabetic rats were randomly allocated to different groups, either receiving no treatment or treated with a low carbohydrate diet or insulin, or both. Control rats were randomly allocated to a normal or low carbohydrate diet. Among the diabetic rats mean plasma glucose concentrations for the groups ranged from 27-4 mmol/l (494 mg/100 ml) in the untreated rats to 9-8 mmol/l (177 mg/100 ml) in those receiving both a low carbohydrate diet and insulin. A highly significant positive relation was found between BMT and plasma glucose concentration for individual rats. When BMT was corrected for body weight a similar relation was observed. ...
Thank you for mentioning glycemic index. Diabetes Canada has been a supporter and proponent of the glycemic index for a number of years. The reason for that is when people consume a diet with a lower glycemic index.... For those of you who may not be aware, glycemic index measures or ranks foods according to how high blood sugar is raised after consuming those foods or beverages. Foods with a low glycemic index take a much longer time to raise blood sugar. Foods with a high glycemic index raise blood sugar levels immediately, so that would be the difference between having lentils, which are low glycemic index, versus pure sugar or glucose, which has a high glycemic index. The impact of consuming a more low glycemic index diet is that the outcomes of studies have shown that people have a much quicker sense of satiety, so they tend to eat less. It contributes to lower incidence of cardiovascular disease, and it can help people to lose weight. Much to our benefit at Diabetes Canada, it can help to ...
Background: Dietary carbohydrates have been directly associated with gastric cancer risk and have been considered general indicators of a poor diet. However, elevated levels of glucose and insulin elicited by consumption of high amounts of refined carbohydrates may stimulate mitogenic and cancer-promoting insulin-like growth factors (IGF). Glycemic index (GI) and glycemic load (GL), which represent indirect measures of dietary insulin demand, were analysed to understand further the association between carbohydrates and gastric cancer. Patients and methods: Data were derived from a hospital-based case-control study on gastric cancer, conducted in Italy between 1985 and 1997, including 769 cases with incident, histologically confirmed gastric cancer and 2081 controls admitted to the same hospital network as cases for acute, non-neoplastic diseases. All subjects were interviewed using a reproducible food frequency questionnaire. Results: The multivariate odds ratios (OR) for subsequent quartiles of ...
Epidemiological studies form the basis for the hypothesis that a diet with a high glycemic load or glycemic index leads to type 2 diabetes. Findings from the Nurses Health Study demonstrated a positive association between dietary glycemic index and risk of type 2 diabetes; the relative risk was 1.37 when the highest quintile of glycemic index was compared with the lowest. Similarly, the glycemic load was positively associated with the development of type 2 diabetes (relative risk 1.47) in women (70). More recently, a follow-up study of the participants in the Nurses Health Study confirmed the association between glycemic load and risk of type 2 diabetes (71). In men (Health Professionals Follow-Up Study), however, neither glycemic load nor glycemic index were associated with diabetes risk, except when adjusted for cereal fiber intake (30). Finally, in the Iowa Womens Health Study, no significant relationship between glycemic index or glycemic load and the development of type 2 diabetes was ...
There is little evidence for the effectiveness of low-carbohydrate diets for people with type 1 diabetes.[1] For certain individuals, it may be feasible to follow a low-carbohydrate regime combined with carefully-managed insulin dosing. This can be hard to maintain and there are concerns about potential adverse health effects caused by the diet.[1] In general, people with type 1 diabetes are advised to follow an individualized eating plan.[1] The proportion of carbohydrate in a diet is not linked to the risk of type 2 diabetes, although there is some evidence that diets containing certain high-carbohydrate items - such as sugar-sweetened drinks or white rice - are associated with an increased risk.[28] Some evidence indicates that consuming fewer carbohydrate foods may reduce biomarkers of type 2 diabetes.[29][30] A 2018 report on type 2 diabetes by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) found that a low-carbohydrate diet may not be ...

OBJECTIVE--To examine the dietary preferences of and metabolic effects in patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) of a home-prepared high-monounsaturated fat (HM) diet compared with the recommended high-carbohydrate (CHO) diet. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS--Ten men with mild NIDDM prepared HM and high-CHO diets at home alternately and in random order for 2 weeks each with a minimum 1-week washout. Before and after each diet, 24-h urine glucose, fasting lipids, fructosamine, and 6-h profiles of glucose, insulin, and triglycerides were measured. Dietary preferences were assessed by questionnaire. RESULTS--In the HM diet, patients consumed 40% of energy intake as CHO and 38% as fat (21% monounsaturated) compared with 52 and 24%, respectively, in the high-CHO diet, with equal dietary fiber content. Body weight and total energy intake were similar in both. The HM diet resulted in significantly lower 24-h urinary glucose excretion, fasting triglyceride, and mean profile glucose levels.

Thylakoids are chlorophyll-containing membranes in chloroplasts that have been isolated from green leaves. It has been previously shown that thylakoids supplemented with a high-fat meal can affect cholecystokinin (CCK), ghrelin, insulin and blood lipids in humans, and can act to suppress food intake and prevent body weight gain in rodents. This study investigates the addition of thylakoids to a high carbohydrate meal and its effects upon hunger motivation and fullness, and the levels of glucose, insulin, CCK, ghrelin and tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha in overweight women. Twenty moderately overweight female subjects received test meals on three different occasions; two thylakoid enriched and one control, separated by 1 week. The test meals consisted of a high carbohydrate Swedish breakfast, with or without addition of thylakoids. Blood samples and VAS-questionnaires were evaluated over a 4-h period. Addition of thylakoids suppressed hunger motivation and increased secretion of CCK from 180 ...
A glycemic index diet is a diet plan that uses the glycemic index as a guide for which foods to eat while on your diet. The glycemic index was created to let you know how a specific carbohydrate will affect your blood sugar. While all carbohydrates affect your blood sugar in some way, certain carbs will increase your blood sugar more rapidly than others.. By using the glycemic index as a tool to discover which carbohydrates are best for your body, you will be able to steer clear of the carbs that will cause dramatic spikes in your blood sugar.. How to Use the Glycemic Index with a Diet. The main purpose of a glycemic index diet is to discover which carbohydrates promote weight loss. Typically, the carbs listed on the low end of the glycemic index will help you feel full for longer periods of time without dramatically increasing your blood sugar levels. Since these foods also tend to be healthier and less processed, they will also help promote weight loss.. By focusing your efforts on eating more ...
The popularity of low carbohydrate diets has waxed and waned in the U.S. over the last two centuries. From the Banting diet in the 1860s to the Atkins plan 100 years later to the Paleo/Primal way of eating that is currently in vogue, some form of carbohydrate restriction has always existed as an alternative to more conventional nutrition recommendations. Today it is the low-fat, high-complex-carbohydrate diet that is promoted by the United States Department of Agriculture, American Dietetic Association, American Heart Association, and other organizations. While this diet may be healthy for some, I believe low carbohydrate diets can be very beneficial for others. Criticisms of low carbohydrate plans include that they are too difficult to follow long term, ineffective at sustaining weight loss, and potentially harmful to health. However, there has been abundant research conducted over the last 20 years which disputes these claims and in fact presents a strong argument for why carbohydrate ...
Abstract. Current nutritional approaches to metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes generally rely on reductions in dietary fat. The success of such approaches has been limited and therapy more generally relies on pharmacology. 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. The rationale is that carbohydrate restriction improves glycemic control and reduces insulin fluctuations which are primary targets. Experiments are summarized showing that carbohydrate-restricted diets are at least as effective for weight loss as low-fat diets and that substitution of fat for carbohydrate is generally beneficial for risk of cardiovascular disease. These beneficial effects of carbohydrate restriction do not require weight loss. Finally, the point is reiterated that carbohydrate restriction improves all of the features of metabolic syndrome..

Some athletes do actually eat too much carbohydrate with the misconception that they can eat unlimited amounts of food because they exercise. Athletes consuming too much energy (kilojoules) need to reduce overall energy intake and this may include reducing the amount of carbohydrate eaten. They may also bulk up their meals using foods with a low energy density, to keep them full without overdoing the calorie intake. Carbohydrate intake should be periodised (matched) to training intensity and duration so that the amount of carbohydrate eaten on heavy training days is higher than low training days, and reduced during taper blocks as well as during the off-season or injury. An Accredited Sports Dietitian can help you find the balance and plan that will work best for your individual needs.. ...
Carbohydrate restricted diets are commonly practiced but seldom taught. As a result, doctors, dietitians, nutritionists, and nurses may have strong opinions about low carbohydrate dieting, but in many if not most cases, these views are not grounded in science. The authors of this book share over 50 years of clinical experience using low carbohydrate diets. Particularly in the last decade, much has been learned about the risks associated with insulin resistance (including but not limited to metabolic syndrome, hypertension, and type-2 diabetes), and how this condition is far better controlled by carbohydrate restriction than with drugs.
The glycemic index is a value of foods based on how those foods induce increases in blood glucose levels. Foods low on the glycemic index (GI) tend to release glucose slowly and firmly. Foods high on the glycemic index(GI) release glucose rapidly. People with type 1 diabetes and also some with type 2 cant generate adequate quantities of insulin-which means they are liable to have an excess of blood glucose. The gradual and steady release of glucose in low-glycemic foods is essential in keeping blood glucose under control.. To understand a foods that impact on blood sugar, you require knowing both how swiftly the food makes glucose enter the bloodstream, and how much glucose it will release. A glycemic load provides a more realistic picture of a foods real-life impact on blood sugar.. Glycemic Load is calculated this way:. GL = GI/100 x Net Carbs. (Net Carbs are equal to the Total Carbohydrates minus Dietary Fiber). For instance, Watermelon has a very high glycemic index(GI), that is 80. But a ...

The wax gourd requires very warm weather to grow but can be stored for many months much like winter squash. Ash gourds of the Indian subcontinent have a white coating with rough texture (hence the name ash gourd, literally, in some vernaculars). South East Asian varieties have a smooth waxy texture. It is one of the few vegetables available during winter in areas of deciduous vegetation, hence its Chinese name literally means 'winter gourd'. The Wax Gourd can typically be stored for 12 months. In India, the wax gourd is recognized for its medicinal properties in the Ayurvedic system of medicine.[8] It is also has significance in spiritual traditions of India and Yoga, where it is identified as a great source of Prana.[10]. In Vietnamese cuisine, it is called bí đao, which is usually used to make soup or stew.[11] When cooked with pork short ribs, the resulting soup is traditionally thought to help produce more milk for breastfeeding mothers.[citation needed]. In Chinese cuisine the gourds are ...
Gourds were cultivated in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas for thousands of years before Columbus' discovery of America. Historically, in Europe,[9] Walahfrid Strabo (808-849), abbot and poet from Reichenau and advisor to the Carolingian kings, discussed the gourd in his Hortulus as one of the 23 plants of an ideal garden.[10][11]. Recent research indicates some gourds have an African origin and that there were at least two unrelated domestications: one is thought to have occurred 8,000-9,000 years ago, based on the analysis of archeological samples found in Asia, and the second domestication is believed to have occurred 4,000 years ago, and has been traced from archeological discoveries in Egypt.. The mystery of the bottle gourd - namely that this African or Eurasian species was being grown in America over 8,000 years ago[12] - comes from the difficulty in understanding how it arrived in the Americas. The bottle gourd was originally thought to have drifted across the Atlantic Ocean from ...

Broad beans (Amharic: baqella) are one of the most popular legumes in Ethiopia. They are tightly coupled with every aspect of Ethiopian life. They are mainly used as an alternative to peas to prepare a flour called shiro, which is used to make shiro wot (a stew almost ubiquitous in Ethiopian dishes). During the fasting period in the Ethiopian Orthodox Church tradition called Tsome Filliseta, Tsome arbeå, Tsome Tahsas, and Tsome Hawaria (which are in August, end of February-April, mid-November-beginning of January and June-July), two uncooked spicy vegetable dishes are made using broad beans. The first is Hilibet, a thin, white paste of broad bean flour mixed with pieces of onion, green pepper, garlic, and other spices based on personal taste. The second is siljo, a fermented, sour, spicy thin yellow paste of broad bean flour. Both are served with other stews and injera (a pancake-like bread) during lunch and dinner.. Baqella nifro (boiled broad beans) are eaten as a snack during some holidays ...
Typically, the fruit is pale green to yellow when ripe, with sweet white (or, more rarely, pink or red) flesh, and a very thick albedo (rind pith). It is a large citrus fruit, 15-25 centimetres (5.9-9.8 in) in diameter,[6] usually weighing 1-2 kilograms (2.2-4.4 lb). Leaf petioles are distinctly winged. The fruit tastes like a sweet, mild grapefruit (believed to be a hybrid of Citrus maxima and the orange),[7] although the typical pomelo is much larger than the grapefruit, and also has a much thicker rind. The pomelo has none, or very little, of the common grapefruit's bitterness, but the enveloping membranous material around the segments is bitter, considered inedible, and thus is usually discarded. Sometimes, the peel is used to make marmalade, may be candied, or dipped in chocolate. In Brazil, the thick skin is often used for making a sweet conserve, while the spongy pith of the rind is discarded. In Sri Lanka, it is often eaten as a dessert, either raw or sprinkled with sugar. Occasionally, ...

In the past, bean pods often contained a "string", a hard fibrous strand running the length of the pod. This was removed before cooking, or made edible by cutting the pod into short segments. Modern, commercially grown green bean varieties lack strings.. Green beans are eaten around the world, and are marketed canned, frozen, and fresh. Green beans are often steamed, boiled, stir-fried, or baked in casseroles. A dish with green beans popular throughout the United States, particularly at Thanksgiving, is green bean casserole, which consists of green beans, cream of mushroom soup, and French fried onions.[7]. Some US restaurants serve green beans that are battered and fried, and some Japanese restaurants serve green bean tempura. Green beans are also sold dried, and fried with vegetables such as carrots, corn, and peas, as vegetable chips.. The flavonol miquelianin (Quercetin 3-O-glucuronide) can be found in green beans.[8]. ...

  • A low carbohydrate/high protein diet can reduce body weight and visceral fat, increase the expression of ghrelin, and decline GLP-1 expression in diet-induced obesity rats. (
  • In addition, although glucose is the primary stimulus for insulin release, protein/amino acids augment insulin release when ingested with carbohydrate, thereby increasing the clearance of glucose from the blood ( 15 - 17 ). (
  • Dry beans also serve as a good source of lean dietary protein. (
  • A medium carbohydrate (15% wheat starch)/medium protein (MC/MP) diet or a high carbohydrate (30% wheat starch)/low protein (HC/LP) diet was fed to triplicate tanks (28 fish each) during four weeks. (
  • Protein stimulates insulin release as much as carbohydrate does (because one of insulin's jobs is to send amino acids into lean tissues such as muscle), but protein doesn't supply rapid glucose like carbohydrate does. (
  • What we see right away is that high-protein foods frequently stimulate insulin to a similar, sometimes even greater, degree than high-carbohydrate foods, calorie for calorie. (
  • The idea goes like this: glucagon is the opposite of insulin, and if they're released together, as they are when you eat a high-protein meal, then their effects on blood sugar , on hunger , and on fat metabolism cancel one another out in a way that they would not following a carbohydrate-heavy meal. (
  • The reason is simple: If your diet provides enough protein, vitamins, and minerals, it's almost certain to provide enough carbohydrates and probably more than enough fat. (
  • We investigated the acute effects of transition from the recommended moderately high carbohydrate (HC) diet towards a carbohydrate-reduced high-protein (CRHP) diet on postprandial glycemia, insulinemia, lipemia, and appetite-regulating hormones in non-diabetic adults. (
  • 31%/54% carbohydrate, 29%/16% protein, 40%/30% fat). (
  • It is possible to achieve a reduction in postprandial glycemia and insulin without a deleterious effect on beta-cell glucose sensitivity by substituting part of dietary carbohydrate with iso-caloric protein and fat in subjects without type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). (
  • The optimum dietary protein and lipid requirements for abalone were reported to be 25%-35% and 3%-7%, respectively (Mai et al. (
  • Our first objective was to test the effect of dietary carbohydrates itself (without modification of dietary protein intake) on hepatic glucose gene expression (taking into account of the paralogs. (
  • Weight loss diets for humans that are based on a high intake of protein but low intake of fermentable carbohydrate may alter microbial activity and bacterial populations in the large intestine and thus impact on gut health. (
  • In this study, 19 healthy, obese (body mass index range, 30 to 42) volunteers were given in succession three different diets: maintenance (M) for 3 days (399 g carbohydrate/day) and then high protein/medium (164 g/day) carbohydrate (HPMC) and high protein/low (24 g/day) carbohydrate (HPLC) each for 4 weeks. (
  • Low-carbohydrate diets in which carbohydrates are largely replaced by an increased proportion of dietary protein and/or fat have proved a popular weight loss strategy for humans ( 1 , 11 , 36 ). (
  • The potential health impacts associated with increased protein ( 34 ) or fat ( 27 ) intake have been controversial among nutritionists, but less attention has been paid to the consequences of low carbohydrate supply. (
  • High-protein, low-carbohydrate (HPLC) diets have been recommended for body weight loss, but little is known about their effects on the canine gut microbiome. (

  • As fat is stored more efficiently than excess carbohydrate, use of high carbohydrate foods is likely to reduce the risk of obesity in the long term. (
  • There is no direct evidence to implicate either of these groups of carbohydrates in the etiology of obesity, based on data derived from studies in affluent societies. (
  • Thus, avoiding obesity and increasing intakes of a wide range of foods rich in non-starch polysaccharide and carbohydrate-containing foods with a low glycemic index offers the best means of reducing the rapidly increasing rates of NIDDM in many countries. (
