PROTEIN INTAKE & MORTALITY

High-protein diet associated with 1.7-fold greater risk of dying over the next 18 yrs in those 50-65

People 50- to 65-years old who consumed a high-protein diet, defined as consuming 20% or more of calories from protein, were 1.73 times more likely to die over the next 18 years than people who consumed a low-protein diet, defined as consuming less than 10% of calories from protein, according to a study from researchers at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California, USA.

“None of these associations was significantly affected by controlling for percent calories from total fat or for percent calories from total carbohydrates,” the paper notes.

“However, when the percent calories from animal protein was controlled for, the association between total protein and all-cause or cancer mortality was eliminated or significantly reduced, respectively, suggesting animal proteins are responsible for a significant portion of these relationships.”

PROTEIN INTAKE & CANCER

Moderate-protein diet associated w/ 3.1-fold greater risk of cancer death over 18 yrs in those 50-65

People 50- to 65-years old who consumed a moderate-protein diet, defined as consuming 10-19% or more of calories from protein, were 3.1 times more likely to die from cancer over the next 18 years than people who consumed a low-protein diet, defined as consuming less than 10% of calories from protein, according to a study from researchers at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California, USA.

“None of these associations was significantly affected by controlling for percent calories from total fat or for percent calories from total carbohydrates,” the paper notes.

PROTEIN INTAKE & MORTALITY

High-protein diet associated with 4.3-fold greater risk of cancer death over 18 yrs in those 50-65

People 50- to 65-years old who consumed a high-protein diet, defined as consuming 20% or more of calories from protein, were 4.3 times more likely to die from cancer over the next 18 years than people who consumed a low-protein diet, defined as consuming less than 10% of calories from protein, according to a study from researchers at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California, USA.

PROTEIN INTAKE & MORTALITY

High-protein diet associated with 28% lower risk of dying over the next 18 yrs in those 66 and older

People 66-years and older who consumed a high-protein diet, defined as consuming 20% or more of calories from protein, were 28% less likely to die over the next 18 years than people who consumed a low-protein diet, defined as consuming less than 10% of calories from protein, according to a study from researchers at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California, USA.

“[T]his was not affected by percent calories from fat, from carbohydrates, or from animal protein,” the paper notes.

In other words, a high-protein diet INCREASED the risk of dying prematurely in people 50-65 years-old, but REDUCED the risk of dying prematurely in those 66-years-old and older.

PROTEIN INTAKE & MORTALITY

Moderate-protein diet associated with 21% lower risk of dying over the next 18 yrs in those 66+

People 66-years and older who consumed a moderate-protein diet, defined as consuming 10-19% or more of calories from protein, were 21% less likely to die over the next 18 years than people who consumed a low-protein diet, defined as consuming less than 10% of calories from protein, according to a study from researchers at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California, USA.

“[T]his was not affected by percent calories from fat, from carbohydrates, or from animal protein,” the paper notes.

In other words, a moderate- to high-protein diet INCREASED the risk of dying prematurely in people 50-65 years-old, but REDUCED the risk of dying prematurely in those 66-years-old and older.

PROTEIN

Type 2 diabetics eating a 25% protein diet lost 21.3 lbs vs 14.5 lbs for 15% protein

Type 2 diabetics with renal disease who were assigned to eat a moderate protein diet containing at least 25% protein lost an average of 21.3 lbs after one year versus 14.5 lbs for those assigned to eat a standard protein diet containing 15% protein, however, the difference was not statistically significant.

People in the moderate protein diet ate an average of 19 grams more protein per day than those on the standard protein diet.

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."

OVEREATING

Overeating 1000 calories per day: weight gain of 14 lbs on 25% protein diet vs 7 lbs on 5% protein

Here is a 7-minute video of obesity researcher, George Bray, MD, talking about the results of their new study in which they overfed subjects roughly an extra 1,000 calories per day of either a low-protein diet (5% protein), a normal-protein diet (15% protein), or a high-protein diet (25% protein), and the effect that this had on body weight and body fat.

All groups gained weight. The normal- and high-protein groups gained the most weight (13-14 lbs vs 7 lbs for the low-protein group), and all groups gained roughly the same amount of body fat.


In other words, overeating caused weight gain regardless of weather they were overeating a high-protein diet or a low-protein diet.


Even though the low-protein group gained weight, they lost a small amount of lean body mass (muscle).


Dr. Bray notes that this shows that not eating enough protein -- a diet containing only 5% protein -- will not prevent loss of lean body mass. He notes that this finding was unexpected.

GREEN TEA PLUS CAFFEINE

90 mg of EGCG plus 50 mg of caffeine with each meal helped patients maintain a 15 lbs weight loss

After losing 15 pounds in one month on a very-low-calorie diet, people were able to maintain this weight loss either by taking 90 mg of EGCG plus 50 mg of caffeine after each meal, or by eating a high-protein diet containing 100 grams of protein per day, which included 50 grams of a simple protein powder called calcium caseinate according to a study from Maastricht University in Maastricht, Netherlands.

People eating a diet containing adequate protein of only 50-60 grams of protein per day regained 6 pounds during the three months of intended weight maintenance. Read the entire article | Email this article
