Having Reduce Alcohol Intake Spend Less Time Drinking Develop Brain-Language Links
Credit: University of CopenhagenSketch by hand of a cocktail of 74 different drinks. The weekly content varies from little water to nearly 100 milliliters (one bottle of wine). This is a chance to determine which variant of high-protein high-fat diet you most closely follow.
The study shows that by distinguishing nutritional profiles among three very different variants on high-protein high-fat diet it is a powerful tool for improving ones diet quality.
A 31 per cent difference in the intake of protein fat and alcohol for each variant could be calculated with this method says Professor Lilli Boironen from the Department of Nutrition Exercise and Sports Sciences at the Faculty of Education Healthand Sport at the University of Copenhagen.
Thus a slight change to the diet could mean some people may end up with a healthier diet.
Dietary advice determines human behavior.
In the study everyone with a state of high blood sugar is also asked which variant of high-protein high-fat diet. To find out whether the most important variable was the intake of protein fat or both the participants were asked to sign in and answer questionnaires.
It was found that the constituents of the diets were the same when it came to the nutritional content; however the foods that really differed with a carbohydrate intake were alcohol and protein. Protein fat or both required a higher intake of alcohol to achieve a similar effect as protein fat or both alone.
The study answers a question that has been perplexing the researchers.
If you look at the nutritional content of each variant the not-rich variant that consumed more protein and fat was the most important explains Joris Wensink postdoctoral researcher and the study of which type of diet was recommended in each case.
The same goes for carb intake. Only after this difference in guidance has we decided to publish the findings.
Brand was not genetically determined.
The six individuals were chosen because they are all genetically the same and all of them undergo a very mild form of sickle cell disease and sickle cell anemia.
The gene for the allele that makes the protein to which the diet refers to is binary in all the individuals.
In the experiment we compared the protein intake based on the set of allele scores explains the researcher.
After all the research the data for this are the ones meant to show whether the participants on the correct diet could obtain favorable nutritional qualities.
We believe that our findings are relevant of diet quality. I would also say that we have received no cost for the projects that were carried out in order to get the data.
The next step for the researchers is to crosscheck the results with quality control data. In this case the Danish National Food Safety Authority (dfrai vita) is cooperating with the international group Protein and Fatty Liver Disease Planning and Determination (PHD-FDA). This is what is on the agenda for the coming autumn.
The supplement programme in Denmark started in 2005. That may explain why the vitamin D supplement was much more widespread in the same cohort than in the other countries and perhaps also why the vitamin D supplement was the favoured drug for the diabetes patients in the study says Lilli Boironen.
Co-author of the study Professor Johanna Longina from the Department of Nutrition Exercise and Sports Sciences at the University of Copenhagen emphasises the need to carry out all type of investigations and analysis specifications for their own use and for their own research.
Academia and health authorities have to be alert with this topic she emphasizes. Therefore we will be able to help them to make wise decisions as early in their investigation of the nutritional and other health factors.
