Effect of 24 h Severe Energy Restriction on Appetite Regulation and Ad-libitum Energy Intake

2016-03-04 01:53:21 | BioPortfolio


Long term maintenance of weight loss is generally poor, which is at least partly due to increased feelings of hunger associated with restricting what can be eaten. Intermittent severe energy restriction is a novel dietary strategy that requires individuals to consume a very-low energy diet for 1-4 days per week, allowing normal feeding patterns to be adopted on the other days in the week. However, the effect of a consuming a very-low energy diet on appetite regulation, which might represent a key marker of long-term adherence to dieting, has not been determined. This study aimed to assess the effects of severely restricting energy intake for 24 h on markers of appetite regulation, energy balance and metabolism compared to an adequate energy trial.

Effects of intraduodenal co-administration of lauric acid and leucine on gut motility, plasma cholecystokinin and energy intake in healthy men.

The fatty acid, lauric acid ("C12"), and the amino acid, leucine ("Leu"), stimulate gut hormones, including CCK, associated with suppression of energy intake. In our recent study, intraduodenal infusi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The lack of sufficient energy or protein to meet the body's metabolic demands, as a result of either an inadequate dietary intake of protein, intake of poor quality dietary protein, increased demands due to disease, or increased nutrient losses.

An imbalanced nutritional status resulted from excessive intake of nutrients. Generally, overnutrition generates an energy imbalance between food consumption and energy expenditure leading to disorders such as OBESITY.

Total number of calories taken in daily whether ingested or by parenteral routes.

A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of proteins in the diet, characterized by adaptive enzyme changes in the liver, increase in amino acid synthetases, and diminution of urea formation, thus conserving nitrogen and reducing its loss in the urine. Growth, immune response, repair, and production of enzymes and hormones are all impaired in severe protein deficiency. Protein deficiency may also arise in the face of adequate protein intake if the protein is of poor quality (i.e., the content of one or more amino acids is inadequate and thus becomes the limiting factor in protein utilization). (From Merck Manual, 16th ed; Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, 12th ed, p406)

Electric power supply devices which convert biological energy, such as chemical energy of metabolism or mechanical energy of periodic movements, into electrical energy.
