Role of Insulin-Stimulated Adipose Tissue Perfusion in the Development of Whole-Body Insulin Resistance

After food ingestion, macronutrients are transported to and stored in the skeletal muscle and adipose tissue. They can be subsequently used as an energy source in times of energy deprivation. Uptake of these nutrients in myocytes and adipocytes depends largely on adequate tissue perfusion. Interestingly, insulin is able to dilate skeletal muscle arterioles, which facilitates […]

Jeff Volek – The Many Facets of Keto-Adaptation: Health, Performance, and Beyond

Obesity is a condition of excess fat accumulation in adipocytes where the person is literally stuck in storage mode diverting a disproportionate amount of calories into fat cells as opposed to oxidation. <iframe width=”640″ height=”360″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/GC1vMBRFiwE” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen=”allowfullscreen”></iframe> Thus it is more productive to think of obesity as a problem in ‘energy flow’ rather than […]

The Wrong Eating Habits Can Hurt Your Brain

A longstanding idea is that the regulation of energy intake and body weight depends on the integrative control by external food-related cues in the environment and physiological signals arising from the internal milieu. In fact, according to several accounts the ability of such environmental food cues to evoke appetitive and consummatory responding is held in […]

Meal frequency and energy balance

Several epidemiological studies have observed an inverse relationship between people’s habitual frequency of eating and body weight, leading to the suggestion that a ‘nibbling’ meal pattern may help in the avoidance of obesity. Publimed: Meal frequency and energy balance. A review of all pertinent studies shows that, although many fail to find any significant relationship, […]

Increased meal frequency does not promote greater weight loss

There have been reports of an inverse relationship between meal frequency (MF) and adiposity. It has been postulated that this may be explained by favorable effects of increased MF on appetite control and possibly on gut peptides as well. Publimed: Increased meal frequency does not promote greater weight loss in subjects who were prescribed an […]

The share of ultra-processed foods and the overall nutritional quality of diets in the US

Recent population dietary studies indicate that diets rich in ultra-processed foods, increasingly frequent worldwide, are grossly nutritionally unbalanced, suggesting that the dietary contribution of these foods largely determines the overall nutritional quality of contemporaneous diets. Yet, these studies have focused on individual nutrients (one at a time) rather than the overall nutritional quality of the […]

Low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet versus a low-fat diet to treat obesity and hyperlipidemia

Low-carbohydrate diets remain popular despite a paucity of scientific evidence on their effectiveness. Publimed: A low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet versus a low-fat diet to treat obesity and hyperlipidemia: a randomized, controlled trial. OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of a low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet program with those of a low-fat, low-cholesterol, reduced-calorie diet. DESIGN: Randomized, controlled trial. SETTING: […]

Correlation between carbohydrates and fat in a high-protein diet and appetite suppresion and energy expenditure

Two types of relatively high-protein diets, with a normal or low proportion of carbohydrates, have been shown effective for weight loss. The objective was to assess the significance of the presence or absence of carbohydrates and the proportion of fat in high-protein diets for affecting appetite suppression, energy expenditure, and fat oxidation in normal-weight subjects […]
