Depressed obese
Scientists have discovered that formerly obese mice that became leaner have greatly improved energy efficiency, which might be preventing their complete return to normal weight [1]. Β Why is it so hard to lose the last few pounds? People attempting to lose weight often feel like their own bodies are fighting them, as shedding additional pounds...
Edible mushrooms
Scientists have reported that protein derived from mushrooms (mycoprotein) has a similar impact on muscle mass and strength as animal-based protein in young, healthy people undergoing resistance training [1]. Choosing between animal and non-animal sources Proteins are essential for muscle building, and strong muscles are important for healthy aging. However, this does not mean that...
Keto diet
Scientists have published a new study where they suggest that low carbohydrate consumption is significantly associated with increased insulin resistance in healthy, lean people [1]. Benefits and risks Diet is a powerful mediator of health and longevity. While there is broad consensus on what dietary components are dangers to be avoided, such as highly processed...
Mediterranean Diet Might Lower Risk of Dementia
In a large-scale observational study, British scientists have shown that high levels of adherence to the Mediterranean diet might substantially lower the risk of dementia [1]. A healthy diet The Mediterranean diet, which is based on ingredients such as olive oil, vegetables, legumes, fish, and whole grains, is considered one of the healthiest in the...
Fat mouse closeup
In a new study published in Endocrinology and Metabolism, researchers have shown that fat rather than sugar is the macronutrient that drives obesity and other detrimental metabolic changes if it constitutes a large proportion of dietary calories [1]. Obesity, diet, and the microbiome Obesity is associated with a dysregulation of several molecular pathways, which lead...
Protein muscle
Researchers publishing in Age and Ageing have found that, rather than being protective, an increase in dietary protein is associated with an increased chance of sarcopenia. Sarcopenia is a well-known disorder that occurs with aging. People with sarcopenia lack adequate muscular function, leading to frailty, a higher risk of falls, and a functional decline in...
