Is it time to recommend routine multivitamin/mineral supplementation for all young children?

The role of energy expenditure in energy regulation remains a subject of continuing controversy. New data have emerged from studies conducted over the last decade demonstrating that energy expenditure is a critical factor contributing to successful energy regulation in normal individuals, as well as to the disregulation of energy balance that characterizes obesity. Reduced energy expenditure appears to facilitate weight gain in individuals susceptible to obesity and also appears to reduce the ex...

Recommendations for increased consumption of protein are among the most common approaches of popular or fad diets. This review summarizes the effects of dietary protein on satiety, energy intake, thermogenesis, and weight loss, as well as its effect on a variety of health outcomes in adults. In short-term studies, dietary protein modulates energy intake via the sensation of satiety and increases total energy expenditure by increasing the thermic effect of feeding. Whereas these effects did not c...
