Americans weigh more this decade, but fewer adults want to lose weight

28% of Americans said they weighed 200 pounds or more between 2010 and 2019 -- a four-point jump from a 2001 to 2009, according to a new Gallup poll. Still, fewer Americans now consider themselves overweight or obese.

Children with “metabolically healthy obesity” (MHO) are a distinct subgroup of youth with obesity, who are less prone to the clustering of cardiometabolic risk factors. Although this phenotype, frequently defined by the absence of metabolic syndrome components or insulin resistance, was first described during the early 1980s, a consensus-based definition of pediatric MHO was introduced only recently, in 2018. The purpose of this review was to concisely summarize current knowledge regarding the MHO phenomenon in youth. The prevalence of MHO in children varies from 3 to 87%, depending on the definition used and t...

ConclusionsPost-prandial plasma metabolomics profiles suggest that a 2-m-long BLP RYGB does not have a negative impact on acute metabolite absorption. RYGB BPL length seems to influence post-prandial acetate levels, which could contribute to the additional positive metabolic outcomes.

AbstractNutrition is the primary source of energy production for myocardial contractility and to maintaining cardiac efficiency. Although many studies provided evidence of the benefits of nutritional intervention in chronic heart failure patients (CHF), these effects are not still completely understood. We searched in PubMed and Embase articles related to the following keywords: “chronic heart failure” with “diet,” “nutrition,” “insulin resistance,” and “caloric restriction.” Of the 975 retrieved articles, 20 have been selected. The primary endpoint was the left v...

ng Park The present study examined the effect of a 12-week combined resistance and aerobic exercise training program on cardiometabolic biomarkers and red blood cell (RBC) hemorheological function in 20 obese older men (mean age: 68.8 ± 0.9 years). Subjects were randomly divided into two groups (exercise intervention [EXP; n = 10] and control [CON; n = 10]). The EXP subjects performed resistance and aerobic exercise training program three times per week for 12 weeks, and the CON subjects maintained their regular lifestyle during the intervention period. Body composition was estimated using bioelectrical impe...
