    OBESITY & CANCER

    Obesity-related cancers increase 7% in women for every ten-year increase in adulthood overweight

    Being overweight for a longer duration during adulthood significantly increased the incidence of all obesity-related cancers by 7% (for every ten-year increase in adulthood overweight duration), of postmenopausal breast cancer by 5%, and of endometrial cancer by 17%” according to a new study which followed 73,913 women for an average of 12.6 years.

    Comment: I would not worry about a 7% increase.

    MEAL REPLACEMENT SHAKES

    Meal replacement shakes help women lose 12% of body weight in five months

    Women consuming a 1,000 calories per day including four servings of a liquid meal replacement (Optifast 800) lost an average of 12.1 percent of their body weight after five months compared to 7.8 percent for another group eating a 1,200 to 1,500 calorie per day diet versus 0.1 percent for non-dieting control group according to a new study from researchers at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Philadelphia.

    POTASSIUM

    Women consuming more than 1926 mg potassium per day were 9-16% less likely to die over next 11 years

    The three-fourths of women consuming more than 1926 mg of potassium per day were 9-16% less likely to die during an average follow-up of 11 years than the one-fourth of women consuming less than 1926 mg per day according to a new study.

    To say this the other way, the one-fourth of women consuming the least potassium, less than 1926 mg of potassium per day, were 10-19% MORE likely to die than the one-fourth of women consuming more potassium than this, more than 1926 mg of potassium per day, over an average follow-up of 11 years.

    “High potassium intake is associated with a lower risk of all stroke and ischemic stroke, as well as all-cause mortality in older women, particularly those who are not hypertensive,” the authors of the paper concluded.

    POTASSIUM

    Women consuming more than 1926 mg potassium per day 12-15% less likely to have a stroke over 11 yrs

    The three-fourths of women consuming more than 1926 mg of potassium per day were 12-15% less likely to have a stroke during an average follow-up of 11 years than the one-fourth of women consuming less than 1926 mg per day according to a new study.

    To say this the other way, the one-fourth of women consuming the least potassium, less than 1926 mg of potassium per day, were 14-18% MORE likely to have a stroke than the one-fourth of women consuming more potassium than this, more than 1926 mg of potassium per day, over an average follow-up of 11 years.

    “High potassium intake is associated with a lower risk of all stroke and ischemic stroke, as well as all-cause mortality in older women, particularly those who are not hypertensive,” the authors of the paper concluded.

    BREAKFAST

    Big breakfast with lots of protein & carbs causes more weight loss than low-protein, low-carbs

    A recent study suggests that eating a low-calorie diet limited to 1240 calories per day that includes a big breakfast containing 610 calories with lots of protein (47 grams), some fat (22 grams) and a moderate amount of carbohydrates (58 grams) causes more weight loss than eating low-calorie diet containing 1085 calories per day that includes a small breakfast (290 calories) with a small amount of protein (12 grams), a small amount of carbohydrates (7 grams), and the same amount of fat (22 grams) -- "low calorie, low carb".

    After four months, women on the diet with the low-calorie, low-carb diet that included a small breakfast had lost 28 pounds compared to 23 pounds for those who ate the big breakfast with lots of protein and a moderate amount of carbs.

    However, after eight months, women eating the big breakfast had lost 44.5 pounds compared to only 10 pounds for those in the low-calorie, low card group -- the low-calorie, low-carb group having regained 18 pounds.

    As a percentage of body weight, those who ate the big breakfast had lost 21 percent of their body weight compared to only 4.5 percent for those in the low-calorie, low-carb group. Read the entire article | Email this article
