    Citation: Nutrition & Metabolism 2004 1:15
  7. To compare the effects of isocaloric, energy-restricted very low-carbohydrate ketogenic (VLCK) and low-fat (LF) diets on weight loss, body composition, trunk fat mass, and resting energy expenditure (REE) in o...

    Authors: JS Volek, MJ Sharman, AL Gómez, DA Judelson, MR Rubin, G Watson, B Sokmen, R Silvestre, DN French and WJ Kraemer
    Citation: Nutrition & Metabolism 2004 1:13
  8. There are likely many scenarios and pathways that can lead to metabolic syndrome. This paper reviews mechanisms by which the accumulation of visceral adipose tissue (VAT) may contribute to the metabolic syndro...

    Citation: Nutrition & Metabolism 2004 1:12
  9. The high fat, low carbohydrate ketogenic diet (KD) was developed as an alternative to fasting for seizure management. While the mechanisms by which fasting and the KD inhibit seizures remain speculative, alter...

    Citation: Nutrition & Metabolism 2004 1:11
  10. The topical role of uric acid and its relation to cardiovascular disease, renal disease, and hypertension is rapidly evolving. Its important role both historically and currently in the clinical clustering phen...

    Citation: Nutrition & Metabolism 2004 1:10
  11. Epidemiological studies suggest a non-monotonic effect of alcohol consumption on cardiovascular risk, while there is strong evidence concerning the involvement of homocysteine levels on thrombosis. The aim of ...

    Citation: Nutrition & Metabolism 2004 1:8
  13. Following a low carbohydrate diet, there is a shift towards more fat and less carbohydrate oxidation to provide energy to skeletal muscle, both at rest and during exercise. This review summarizes recent work o...

    Authors: Sandra J Peters and Paul J LeBlanc
    Citation: Nutrition & Metabolism 2004 1:7
  14. Daily energy expenditure consists of three components: basal metabolic rate, diet-induced thermogenesis and the energy cost of physical activity. Here, data on diet-induced thermogenesis are reviewed in relati...

    Authors: Klaas R Westerterp
    Citation: Nutrition & Metabolism 2004 1:5
  15. Insulin resistance induced by a high fat diet has been associated with alterations in lipid content and composition in skeletal muscle and adipose tissue. Administration of β3-adrenoceptor (β3-AR) agonists was...
