Diet is an essential part of daily living. Eating right is a must, as it helps determine your health.
Countless of diet programs have been innovated over the years, and continues to change over the course of time; just like this six new studies that will help you change your own diet.
In a study by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers found that consuming two to seven fortified eggs per week can help avoid the drop of Vitamin D. This discovery suits the winter season where the sun wouldn’t be around to share some D.
According to studies by the FDA, the more consumption of bacon resulted to shorter Leukocyte Telomere Length (LTL), the biomarker of cellular aging. Shorter LTL is associated with the increase of chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes. However, the good news goes to the unprocessed red meat which is not linked to LTLs.
High vs. Low Textured Food
Appetite at ScienceDirect.com conducted a randomized cross-over trial in which they divide participants into two; those who will eat model foods of “high textural complexity” first and those who initially consume the “low textural complexity”.
The result of the study shows that those who eat the high textured food first do not consume much of the rest of the meal, while those who take the low textured food first eat more. As a conclusion, study authors suggest that the more textures are experienced earlier in the meal means satiety is triggered earlier.
It is not in the calories you burned
Another study in Appetite reveals that those who burn more calories actually enjoy just the same amount of recovery meal with those who burn less.
The trial showed that those who burned 265 calories thought that they consumed more of the recovery meal than those who just burned 50 calories. However, the reality is that both groups enjoyed the same 120 calories.
Add Fiber to Cut Calories
According to a study posted in ScienceDirect.com, those who take 6.8 grams of fiber between breakfast and lunch are significantly less hungry as compared those who don’t; avoiding the urge to keep eating more and saving yourself from extra calorie intake.
However, some people experience mild GI (GASTROINTESTINAL) distress as a result of increase in fiber. If this happened to you, stay hydrated and consult your physician.
It is a common belief with gym junkies that daily protein intake must be at 1.2 to 1.7 grams per kilo of your bodyweight.
However, in a Physiological Report, Scottish researchers discovered another thing. It revealed that there was about 20% more muscle repair and growth to men who take 40 grams of whey protein as compared to those who took only 20 grams. Thus, the result wasn’t about protein to body weight.
To illustrate it, a 143-pound man would get the same benefits from one scoop of protein with his 153-pound buddy.
