Published Compound derived from hops reduces abundance of gut microbe associated with metabolic syndrome (via sciencedaily.com)
Researchers have shown in a mouse model and lab cultures that a compound derived from hops reduces the abundance of a gut bacterium associated with metabolic syndrome.
Published Lower risk of haematological cancer after bariatric surgery (via sciencedaily.com)
Obesity surgery is associated with a 40% lower risk of haematological cancer. This has been shown in a study at the University of Gothenburg. This clear link is expected to influence future research in the field.
Published Almonds as part of a healthy weight loss diet (via sciencedaily.com)
When it comes to weight loss, nuts can get a bad rap -- while they're high in protein, they're also high in fats, and this often deters those looking to shed a few kilos. But new research shows that you can eat almonds and lose weight too.
Published Early treatment of child obesity is effective (via sciencedaily.com)
The early treatment of obesity in children is effective in both the short and long term, researchers report.
Published A quarter of people are undoing the benefits of healthy meals by unhealthy snacking (via sciencedaily.com)
A quarter of people are undoing the benefits of healthy meals with unhealthy snacks, which increases the risk of strokes and cardiovascular disease.
Published Benefits, risks in state-mandated school-based BMI assessments (via sciencedaily.com)
A resource economist finds mandated in-school Body Mass Index assessments adopted in varying forms by 24 states to combat childhood obesity have the potential to improve the health of some students while introducing body-image issues for others. The research is believed to be the first to assess these policies as a whole, rather than in single states or school districts.
Published Both high-protein and normal-protein diets are effective for T2D management (via sciencedaily.com)
New findings indicate that the type of protein in the diet is not as important as the overall amount of weight loss for those with Type 2 diabetes. 106 adults with T2D were randomly assigned to either the high-protein or normal-protein diet for 52 weeks. Both diets were energy-restricted. The high-protein diet included recommendations to include lean beef in the diet, while the normal-protein diet instructed participants to refrain from eating any red meats. The team of researchers found that both a high-protein diet (40 percent of total calories from protein) and a moderate-protein diet (21 percent of total calories from protein) were effective in improving glucose control, weight loss and body composition in people with Type 2 diabetes.
Published Fiber from crustaceans, insects, mushrooms promotes digestion (via sciencedaily.com)
Crustaceans, insects and mushrooms are rich sources of the dietary fiber chitin, which activates the immune system and benefits metabolism, according to a new study in mice.
Published Women with PCOS on keto diet may see improvements in fertility (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The ketogenic (keto) diet may lower testosterone levels in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), according to a new article.
Published Resistant starch supplement reduces liver triglycerides in people with fatty liver disease (via sciencedaily.com)
Resistant starch is a nondigestible fiber that ferments in the large intestine, and consumption of it has previously been shown to have a positive effect on metabolism in animal studies. Now, a 4-month randomized controlled trial in people with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) indicates that daily intake of resistant starch can alter gut bacteria composition and lower liver triglycerides and liver enzymes associated with liver injury and inflammation.
Published A new breakthrough in obesity research may allow you to lose fat while eating all you want (via sciencedaily.com)
This is a significant development that brings hope to the one billion individuals with obesity worldwide. Researchers have discovered new insights into the regulation of fat metabolism. The focus of their study lies within the star-shaped non-neuronal cells in the brain, known as 'astrocytes'. Furthermore, the group announced successful animal experiments using the newly developed drug 'KDS2010', which allowed the mice to lose weigh without dietary restrictions.
Published Researchers identify the link between memory and appetite in the human brain to explain obesity (via sciencedaily.com)
Disrupted connections between memory and appetite regulating brain circuits are directly proportional to body mass index (BMI), notably in patients who suffer from disordered or overeating that can lead to obesity, such as binge eating disorder (BED), according to new research. The research notes that individuals who are obese have impaired connections between the dorsolateral hippocampus (dlHPC) and the lateral hypothalamus (LH), which may impact their ability to control or regulate emotional responses when anticipating rewarding meals or treats.
Published Extreme dietary habits for carbohydrates and fats affect life expectancy (via sciencedaily.com)
A new study suggests that extreme dietary habits involving carbohydrates and fats affect life expectancy. Researchers found that a low carbohydrate intake in men and a high carbohydrate intake in women are associated with a higher risk of all-cause and cancer-related mortality and that women with higher fat intake may have a lower risk of all-cause mortality. Their findings suggest that people should pursue a balanced diet rather than heavily restricting their carbohydrate or fat intake.
Published High-fat diets alter gut bacteria, boosting colorectal cancer risk in mice (via sciencedaily.com)
Researchers have discovered how high-fat diets can change gut bacteria and alter digestive molecules called bile acids that are modified by those bacteria, predisposing mice to colorectal cancer. The findings bring scientists closer to understanding the causes of and how to prevent colorectal cancer.
Published A healthy diet, reading, and doing sports promote reasoning skills in children (via sciencedaily.com)
According to a recent study, improved overall diet quality and reduced consumption of red meat, as well as increased time spent in reading and organized sports enhanced reasoning skills among children over the first two school years.
Published Positive metabolic effects of gastric bypass disappear quickly (via sciencedaily.com)
A new study raises questions about the efficacy of bariatric operations involving gastric bypass. The results show that the biggest metabolic changes happened directly after surgery. Just a year after the operation, the concentration of metabolites and fats had returned to almost the same levels as before the procedure.
Published Anti-obesity drug improves associative learning in people with obesity (via sciencedaily.com)
Obesity leads to altered energy metabolism and reduced insulin sensitivity of cells. The so-called 'anti-obesity drugs' are increasingly used to treat obesity and have caused tremendous interest, especially in the USA. Researchers have now shown in people with obesity that reduced insulin sensitivity affects learning of sensory associations. A single dose of the anti-obesity drug liraglutide was able to normalize these changes and restore the underlying brain circuit function.
Published Data researchers connect diet to changes in the microbiome (via sciencedaily.com)
New research shows that intermittent fasting and calorie restriction change the microbiome composition in the gut, which could affect other functions in the body.
Published Semaglutide medication may benefit 93 million U.S. adults (via sciencedaily.com)
A popular weight loss medication may prevent up to 1.5 million heart attacks and strokes over 10 years, and could result in 43 million fewer obese people. The study estimated a reduction in cardiovascular disease risk of 1.8% (from 10.15% to 8.34%), projecting up to 1.5 million cardiovascular events could be potentially prevented in 10 years.
Published Fat burning during exercise varies widely between individuals (via sciencedaily.com)
The best heart rate for burning fat differs for each individual and often does not align with the 'fat burning zone' on commercial exercise machines, researchers report. Instead, the researchers said, clinical exercise testing -- a diagnostic procedure to measure a person's physiological response to exercise -- may be a more useful tool to help individuals achieve intended fat loss goals.
