DIET COMPOSITION

People lost the same amount of weight (13.9 lbs) with 15% protein as 25% protein

People assigned to eat diets with a different composition of protein (15% vs 25%), fat (20% vs 40%) and carbohydrates (35% to 65%), but the same number of calories, lost the same amount of weight and same amount of fat according to a recent study from researchers at Harvard University. The average weight loss was 13.9 lbs after six months which was similar in all the diet groups, with 9.2 lbs coming from body fat, and 4.6 lbs coming from lean body mass (muscle) "with no differences between 25% and 15% protein, 40% and 20% fat, or 65% and 35% carbohydrate."

FAT VS CALORIE INTAKE

People consume 270 more calories when eating a meal with 38% fat vs 24% fat

The more fat a meal contains, the more calories people eat. This according to a study from researchers at University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver, Colorado, USA.

When people consumed a diet containing 23.8 percent fat, they consumed an average of 2748 calories per day.

When they consumed a diet containing 32.7 percent fat, they consumed an additional 235 calories for an average of 2748 calories per day.

When they consumed a diet containing 38.1 percent fat, they consumed an additional 270 calories for an average of 3018 calories per day.

"These results show that energy intake increases as dietary fat content increases across the usual range of dietary fat consumed in the United States," the researcher concluded.

"Even small reductions in dietary fat could help in lowering total energy intake and reducing weight gain in the population." Read the entire article | Email this article
