Evaluation of starch digestibility of Andean crops oriented to healthy diet recommendation

Despite their nutritional benefits, consumers are often underutilized by Starchy Andean crops. The starch digestibility of a food is a marker of its nutritional quality, mainly in the prevention of cardiometabolic food-related diseases. This report examines the in-vitro digestibility of nine Andean crops flours and provides the facts, attitudes, and practices survey among Ecuadorian nutritionists. The results showed that the tested crops could be divided into three categories: Puca shungo potato with high RS, low RDS, SDS, and eGI. Our results will encourage nutritionists to make healthy eating plans.

The Dutch Healthy Diet index (DHD-index): an instrument to measure adherence to the Dutch Guidelines for a Healthy Diet

Abstract Background The aim was to create an index based on the Dutch Guidelines for a Healthy Diet of 2006 that emphasizes dietary quality and application to the Dutch National Food Consumption Survey in order to assess the relationships with micronutrient intakes. The Dutch Healthy Diet index contains ten components from the ten Dutch Guidelines for a Healthy Diet. Conclusions The mean SD of the DHD-index for women was 60. 4 11. 5 for women and 54. 8 10. 8 for men. An inverse correlation was found between the sex-specific quintiles of the DHD-index and total energy intake. Vitamin C showed a positive correlation across quintiles and when adjusted for energy. Conclusions are drawn from two 24-hour recalls, proving variation in nine out of ten constituents that make up the index, according to the Dutch Guidelines for a Healthy Diet.

Responsibility of Individuals and Stakeholders for Obesity and a Healthy Diet: Results From a German Survey

paraphrasedoutput:MethodsThis telephone-based poll was conducted in Germany to determine the opinions of people with and without obesity about the importance of a healthy body weight and healthy diet. MethodsThis telephone-based poll was conducted in Germany. To represent the German population, Landline and cell phone users older than 17 years were quota sampled. Participants reported that the key causes of a high body weight were poor physical activity and heavy caloric intake, which was followed by a lack of will power. When politics take care of a person's healthy diet, more than 85% of the survey respondents agreed that a balanced diet in kindergarten and nutrition education at schools should be the preferred methods. BMI, sex, age, and education are all potential confounders, according to a questionnaire by the majority of participants, and obesity, high body mass, according to a German poll, is attributed to individual behavior, not group.

The Effect of Healthy Diet on Cognitive Performance Among Healthy Seniors – A Mini Review

At present, a healthy diet appears to be one of the most effective methods in slowing cognitive decline in the process of aging. The aim of this mini review is to review and summarize recent randomized clinical and cohort studies examining the effects of healthy eating habits on cognitive health among healthy seniors, as well as updating existing research on the subject. The findings reveal that healthy diet and exercise regiments have a positive effect on cognitive function improvement. In addition, the results show that eating habits, as well as single nutrients, could have a significant effect on specific cognitive domains, such as memory in general, episodic memory, or processing speed. More recently, targeted dietary interventions began to be used in slowing cognitive decline in healthy seniors.

The association of dietary patterns and adherence to WHO healthy diet with metabolic syndrome in children and adolescents: Tehran lipid and glucose study

Methods of this cohort study The study's subjects were selected from a group of children and adolescents of the Tehran Lipid and Glucose Study participants, aged 6 to 18. Diet was determined based on dietary factors of the WHO healthy diet. Results The mean SD age of participants was 13. 5 3. 7 years. Subjects in the third quartile of n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid intake had the lowest odds ratio of MetS in comparison to the first quartile. In the risk of MetS components across quartiles of the WHO healthy eating habits, no significant trends were found. In the highest quartile of unhealthy eating pattern scores, an elevated risk of MetS was discovered, relative to the lowest quartile. Conclusions Our findings revealed that the overwhelming majority of our population did not comply with some of WHO healthy eating habits's recommendations.

Comparison of High-Protein, Intermittent-Fasting Low-Calorie Diet and Heart Healthy Diet for Vascular Health of the Obese

The present study looked at the combined effects of a high-protein, intermittent-fasting, low-calorie diet plan during weight loss maintenance on blood lipids and vascular compliance of people with obesity. Methods: The research involved 40 adults with obesity and was divided into two stages: a 12-week high-protein, intermittent-fasting, low-calorie weight loss diet comparing men and women, as well as a 1-year weight loss maintenance comparing high-protein, intermittent fasting with a heart healthy diet was divided into two phases: 40 adults with obesity were divided into two groups: 40 adults with obesity and obesity were divided into two phases: 40 adults with obesity and 40 women were divided into two groups: At the end of the weight loss program, body mass index, blood lipids, and arterial compliance measures were evaluated, as well as arterial compliance. This diet also showed a potential advantage in minimizing weight gain relapse and improving arterial endurance in comparison to a heart healthy diet in the long run.

Digital Healthy Diet Literacy and Self-Perceived Eating Behavior Change during COVID-19 Pandemic among Undergraduate Nursing and Medical Students: A Rapid Online Survey

For determining appropriate public health responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, assessing healthy diet literacy and eating habits is vital. During the COVID-19 pandemic among nursing and medical students, we investigated the psychometric properties of digital healthy diet literacy and its relationship with eating habits change. We conducted a cross-sectional study at ten public universities in Vietnam from 7 April to May 2020, in which 7616 undergraduate students aged 19–27 completed an online survey to determine socio-demographics, clinical characteristics, health literacy, DDL, and health-related behaviors. The DDL scale is a useful and reliable tool for quick assessment of digital health diet literacy. During the pandemic, students with higher DDL scores had a greater chance of healthier eating habits.

An Active Lifestyle Reinforces the Effect of a Healthy Diet on Cognitive Function: A Population-Based Longitudinal Study

The effect of diet and leisure activities on cognitive function remains unclear. We wanted to establish the fact that an active lifestyle enhances the Nordic Prudent Dietary Pattern's cognitive health. An active lifestyle boosted the effect of NPDP on cognitive function by two times, and reduced the chance of MMSE decline by 30%. Thus, an active lifestyle enhances the benefits of a healthy diet on retained cognitive function, as well as decreasing the risk of cognitive decline.
