Higher intakes of total and animal protein were both associated with increased risks of type 2 diabetes, whereas higher plant protein intake tended to be associated with lower risk of T2D.
Mediterranean diet decreases pain, disability, and depression. Higher adherence to the Mediterranean diet is associated with better quality of life and decreased pain, disability, and depressive symptoms. 4470 participants (2605 women; mean age: 61.3 y).
100min/d 3xweek gives 20 lbs weight loss to women in 24 weeks. Women 18-40 lost 20 lbs with 100 min/d 3xweek exercise for 24 weeks. Weekly exercise undertaken over fewer sessions of longer duration could be more effective for weight loss [9.58 ± 3.77 kg] than when undertaken as more frequent shorter sessions in overweight and obese women on a weight loss program. The HF group included 50 min/d PA, 6 d/wk (300 min/wk). The LF group included 100 min/d PA, 3 d/wk (300 min/wk).
Even light exercise has great benefits. In less-active adults, replacing 1 h of sedentary time with either light- or moderate-to-vigorous–intensity activity was associated with 18% and 42% lower mortality over 7 yrs, respectively. Health promotion efforts for physical activity have mostly focused on moderate-to-vigorous activity. However, our findings derived from accelerometer-based measurements suggest that increasing light-intensity activity and reducing sedentary time are also important, particularly for inactive adults.
Reported anthocyanidin and proanthocyanidin intakes were inversely associated with incident coronary heart disease. There was no significant effect modification by age, sex, race, or region of residence.
