Purpose Manipulation of meal macronutrient may be a useful way to modulate meal-induced thermogenesis (MIT) to induce increases in energy expenditure. The objective of this study was to examine in adolescents with obesity and of healthy weight and the effect of a high protein and high carbohydrate meal on MIT.

Summary Background & Aims Eating at night, compared to day-time, results in a relative hyperglycaemia contributing to an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes for those who habitually eat at night, such as shift workers. Meal choice at night can adversely impact postprandial glycaemia. Meals high in protein have the capacity to favourably reduce night time perturbations in glucose. The aim of this study was to examine if a high protein meal attenuates postprandial glucose at night, compared with a s...

Gut appetite hormone responses may be influenced by meal macronutrients and obesity. The primary aim of this study was to examine in adolescents with obesity and of healthy weight the effect of a high-protein and a high-carbohydrate meal on postprandial gut appetite hormones. A postprandial cross-over study with adolescents 11–19 years old was undertaken. Participants consumed, in random order, a high 79% carbohydrate (HCHO) and a high 55% protein (HP) meal. Ghrelin, glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP...

Background Increasing population lifespan necessitates a greater understanding of nutritional needs in older adults (65 year and over). A synthesis of total energy expenditure in the older population has not been undertaken and is needed to inform nutritional requirements. We aimed to establish the extent of the international evidence for total energy expenditure (TEE) using doubly-labelled water (DLW) in older adults (65 years and over), report challenges in obtaining primary data, and make rec...

Abstract Monounsaturated (MUFA) fatty acids have been shown to induce greater meal-induced thermogenesis (MIT) than saturated fatty acids (SFA) in some studies, however, the effect of SFA chain length has not been examined. We hypothesized that a meal rich in short- to medium-chain SFA would elicit a greater MIT than one rich in long-chain SFA, and that MIT responses would be comparable between the short- to medium-chain SFA and the MUFA rich meal. A 3-arm crossover study was conducted with heal...

Aim: To compare the measurement of total body water (TBW) and fat-free mass (FFM) using the criterion method of deuterium dilution space (2H2O) with bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) using a portable QuadScan 4000, Bodystat® in children and adolescents with phenylketonuria (PKU).
