Resistance training and dietary protein: effects on glucose tolerance and contents of skeletal muscle insulin signaling proteins in older persons1,2,3

Background:Resistance training (RT) and dietary protein independently influence indexes of whole-body glucose control, though their synergistic effects have not yet been documented. Objective:This study assessed the influence of dietary protein intake on RT-induced changes in systemic glucose tolerance and the contents of skeletal muscle insulin signaling proteins in healthy older persons. Design:Thirty-six older men and Read More

Keep on Track with Healthy Snacks

It’s relatively easy to follow a healthy eating plan at home. You stock your fridge and pantry with the foods you want to be able to reach, and you aren’t tempted by shelves full of junk you don’t need. But when you’re on the go — on vacation, at the office or just out and Read More

Premenopausal Women Following a Low-Carbohydrate/High-Protein Diet Experience Greater Weight Loss and Less Hunger Compared to a High-Carbohydrate/Low-Fat Diet

Summary: The following information was written by Atkins professionals. Premenopausal women were instructed to follow either a low carbohydrate/high protein diet (20 grams of carbohydrate per day) increasing carbohydrate by 5 grams per week, or a high carbohydrate/low fat diet (150 grams of carbohydrate, 30% energy from fat) for six weeks. Both groups lost a Read More

Physiogenomic analysis of weight loss induced by dietary carbohydrate restriction

Summary: Background Diets that restrict carbohydrate (CHO) have proven to be a successful dietary treatment of obesity for many people, but the degree of weight loss varies across individuals. The extent to which genetic factors associate with the magnitude of weight loss induced by CHO restriction is unknown. We examined associations among polymorphisms in candidate Read More

Effects of a carbohydrate-restricted diet on emerging plasma markers for cardiovascular disease

Summary: Abstract (provisional) Background Increasing evidence supports carbohydrate restricted diets (CRD) for weight loss and improvement in traditional markers for cardiovascular disease (CVD); less is known regarding emerging CVD risk factors. We previously reported that a weight loss intervention based on a CRD (% carbohydrate:fat:protein = 13:60:27) led to a mean weight loss of 7.5 Read More

Comparison of the Atkins, Ornish, Weight Watchers, and Zone Diets for Weight Loss and Heart Disease Risk Reduction: a Randomized Trial

The following information is available at Pub Med and was not written by Atkins professionals. Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Dansinger, M.L., Gleason, J.A., Griffith, J.L., Selker, H.P., Schaefer, E.J., “Comparison of the Atkins, Ornish, Weight Watchers, and Zone Diets for Weight Loss and Heart Disease Risk Reduction: a Randomized Trial,” Journal of Read More

Insulin secretion predicts success of fat loss

If you’re like most people, you’re probably confused by the enormous amount of research on fat loss. While lower-carbohydrate, higher protein diets consistently seem to produce fat loss – not to mention improvement in important blood measures like triglycerides– many people also seem to have good results on conventional low-fat diets. Other programs that have Read More

Diets High in Fructose Inhibits the Appetite Hormone

A new animal study from the University of Florida, published August 2008 in the American Journal of Physiology — Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology, found that rats became leptin-resistant after being fed a high-fructose diet for six months. Leptin is the appetite-controlling hormone and leptin resistance has long been linked to obesity. This study and Read More
