KEY POINTS: Night time/active phase food restriction for 6 hr impaired glucose intolerance in young male and female mice. Females displayed increased capacity for lipogenesis and triglyceride storage in response to a short daily fast. Females had lower fasting insulin levels and an increased potential for utilizing fat for energy through beta-oxidation compared to males. The need for the inclusion of both sexes, and the treatment of sex as an independent variable, is emphasized within the contex...

Biomedical and clinical sciences are experiencing a renewed interest in the fact that males and females differ in many anatomic, physiological, and behavioral traits. Sex differences in trait variability, however, are yet to receive similar recognition. In medical science, mammalian females are assumed to have higher trait variability due to estrus cycles (the "estrus-mediated variability hypothesis"); historically in biomedical research, females have been excluded for this reason. Contrastingly...

: Classic" forest plots show the effect sizes from individual studies and the aggregate effect from a meta-analysis. However, in ecology and evolution meta-analyses routinely contain over 100 effect sizes, making the classic forest plot of limited use. We surveyed 102 meta-analyses in ecology and evolution, finding that only 11% use the classic forest plot. Instead, most used a "forest-like plot", showing point estimates (with 95% confidence intervals; CIs) from a series of subgroups or categori...

: Meta-analyses are often used to estimate the relative average values of a quantitative outcome in two groups (e.g., control and experimental groups). However, they may also examine the relative variability (variance) of those groups. For such comparisons, two relatively new effect size statistics, the log-transformed 'variability ratio' (the ratio of two standard deviations; lnVR) and the log-transformed 'CV ratio' (the ratio of two coefficients of variation; lnCVR) are useful. In practice, ln...

Carbohydrates are the major source of dietary energy, but their role in health and disease remains controversial. Recent epidemiological evidence suggests that the increased consumption of carbohydrates is associated with obesity and increased risk of mortality and dietary trials show that carbohydrate restriction leads to weight loss and improved glycaemic status in obese and diabetic subjects. In contrast, the diets of populations with long and healthy lifespans (e.g., traditional Okinawans fr...

BACKGROUND: Variations in study quality and design complicate interpretation of the clinical significance of consistently reported changes in copper and iron levels in human Parkinson's disease brain and biofluids. METHODS: We systematically searched literature databases for quantitative reports of biometal levels in the degenerating substantia nigra (SN), CSF, serum, and plasma in Parkinson's disease compared with healthy age-matched controls and assessed the quality of these publications. The ...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to test the protein leverage hypothesis in a cohort of youth with obesity. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted in a cohort of youth with obesity attending a tertiary weight management service. Validated food questionnaires revealed total energy intake (TEI) and percentage of energy intake from carbohydrates (%EC), fats (%EF), and proteins (%EP). Individuals with a Goldberg cutoff > 1.2 of the ratio of reported TEI to basal metabolic rate from fat-fre...
