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

CHILDHOOD OBESITY

Calorie intake of preschool children reduced by 389 calories per day by reducing calorie density

The calorie intake of children 3- to -5 years-old was reduced 389 calories per day, or 14 percent, by reducing the calorie density of breakfast, lunch and their afternoon snack according to a new study from Barbara Rolls and others at Pennsylvania State University in University Park, Pennsylvania, USA.

"Children consumed a consistent weight of foods and beverages over 2 days in both conditions," the authors noted, thus their calorie intake was reduced.

Barbara Rolls has done a number of studies showing that reducing the calorie density of food reduces calorie intake. Read the entire article | Email this article
