In a study conducted among 25 healthy individuals living in a controlled setting who were randomized to overconsumption of different levels of protein diets, those consuming the low-protein diet had less weight gain compared to those consuming normal and high protein diets, and calories alone, and not protein appeared to contribute to an increase in body fat, according to a study in the January 4 issue of JAMA. The researchers also found that protein did contribute to changes in energy...

Lean beef can contribute to a heart-healthy diet in the same way lean white meats can, according to nutritional scientists. The DASH diet -- Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension -- is currently recommended by the American Heart Association to lower cholesterol and reduce risk of heart disease. People following the DASH diet are encouraged to eat fish and poultry, but not much beef. According to the Centers for Disease Control about 26 percent of American deaths are caused by heart...

As part of a heart-healthy diet, eating lean beef daily can help lower cholesterol A new study published in the January 2012 edition of American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that beef can play a role in a cholesterol-lowering diet, despite commonly held beliefs. The study found that diets including lean beef every day are as effective in lowering total and LDL "bad" cholesterol as the "gold standard" of heart-healthy diets (DASH, Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension). The...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Just when you thought the Atkins diet was a thing of the past, a periodic, low-carbohydrate diet was found superior to a standard, daily calorie-restricted diet for reducing weight and lowering blood levels of insulin, a cancer-promoting hormone.

Low or no-carb diets are popular but many dieters find the constant starving feeling untenable and soon find themselves off the wagon and back to their previous habits. However, British researchers have discovered that perhaps a less intensive regimen may be equally effective. Michelle Harvie, a research dietician at the Genesis Prevention Center at the University Hospital in South Manchester, England found that women who essentially gave up carbs for two days and ate normally the rest of...

Research demonstrates dietary protein reduces hunger and increases fullness in overweight and obese men during weight loss A new study demonstrates that higher-protein meals improve perceived appetite and satiety in overweight and obese men during weight loss. According to the research, published in Obesity, higher-protein intake led to greater satiety throughout the day as well as reductions in both late-night and morning appetite compared to a normal protein diet. "Research has shown that...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- A low saturated fat and low glycemic index diet appears to modulate the risk of developing dementia that eventually turns into Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, switching to this diet may not protect those already experiencing cognitive difficulty, according to this study.

Bayer-Carter, M.S., from Veterans...
