Rapid and non-destructive determination of lean fat and bone content in beef using dual energy X-ray absorptiometry.

Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) was evaluated for its accuracy in predicting total lean, fat and bone in beef carcass sides and primal cuts. Left carcass sides (n = 316) were broken down into primal cuts, scanned using DXA and then dissected to fat, lean and bone. The DXA estimates for bone, lean and fat from the primals (n = 237) were used to calibrate partial least squares regression (PLSR) models for predicting tissue weights. Models were validated using 79 additional carcass sides, which ...

Activity Behaviours in Lean and Morbidly Obese Pregnant Women.

Interventions to increase physical activity in pregnancy are challenging for morbidly obese women. Targeting sedentary behaviours may be a suitable alternative to increase energy expenditure. We aimed to determine total energy expenditure, and energy expended in sedentary activities in morbidly obese and lean pregnant women. We administered the Pregnancy Physical Activity Questionnaire PPAQ (non-objective) and the Actical accelerometer (objective) to morbidly obese (BMI≥40kg/m²) and lean (BMI≤25Kg/M²)...

Nicotinamide riboside induces a thermogenic response in lean mice.

Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) is a NAD booster with wide physiological repercussion including the improvement on glucose and lipid homeostasis, increasing the life expectancy in mammals. However, the effects of NR on metabolism are only partially known. Here, we evaluated the effects of NR on the thermogenic response, highlighting the brown adipose tissue (BAT) in lean mice.

Fat-to-Lean Mass Ratio Can Predict Cardiac Events and All-Cause Mortality in Patients Undergoing Hemodialysis.

Although higher body mass index (BMI) is associated with better survival in patients undergoing dialysis, BMI is not an adequate obesity indicator. We hypothesized that the fat-to-lean (F/L) mass ratio could be a suitable marker of nutritional status and evaluated its prognostic impact on long-term outcomes in patients undergoing hemodialysis (HD).

Sleep Disordered Breathing in C57BL/6J mice with Diet Induced Obesity.

Obesity leads to sleep disordered breathing (SDB), as manifested by recurrent upper airway obstructions during sleep termed obstructive sleep apnea and carbon dioxide retention due to obesity hypoventilation. The objective of this work was to characterize breathing during sleep in C57BL6/J mice with diet-induced obesity. Arterial blood gas was measured in nine obese and nine lean mice during wakefulness. Nine male mice with diet induced obesity and six lean male C57BL/6J mice were head mounted with EEG and ...

Associations between lean mass and leptin in men with chronic spinal cord injury: Results from the FRASCI-muscle study.

Leptin is an adipo-myokine that regulates appetite and energy expenditure by a neuroendocrine feedback loop. Leptin levels are positively correlated with BMI in the spinal cord injury population and leptin levels are greater in individuals with spinal cord injury compared to uninjured controls. Leptin is produced in multiple tissues, including fat, bone, and skeletal muscle and is a putative biomarker of sedentary behavior in older adults. We assessed body composition leptin, adiponectin, and IL-6 levels in...
