    The potential links between dietary patterns and components and cardiometabolic risk. The totality of the evidence suggests that added sugar and certain saturated‐fat‐containing foods increase risk for cardiometabolic disease by metabolic mechanisms that are not mediated solely by positive energy balance and fat gain. There is also evidence that certain dietary patterns or components can increase �energy in� and/or �energy storage as fat� via mechanisms that are not explained solely by their specific contribution of calories to the �energy in� side of the energy balance equation. The strength of the links is indicated by the green lines as follows. Solid green line: supported by evidence from animal studies and clinical observational and dietary intervention studies. Dashed line: evidence from prospective cohort studies and/or clinical dietary intervention studies suggests heightened risk during critical developmental periods and in persons with compromised glucose tolerance or insulin sensitivity. Dotted line: supported mainly by evidence from observational and/or animal studies only. Dotted line w/X: evidence from 100% of the clinical dietary intervention studies do not support the evidence from the observational and animal studies.

  • May xx, 2018 - Metabolic Syndrome

    Metabolic Syndrome
    Source: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/obr.12699

    Established paradigm by which positive energy balance promotes the development of the metabolic syndrome. Positive energy balance leads to fat accumulation and larger and more insulin‐resistant adipocytes (a). The insulin resistance increases lipolytic activity and circulating free fatty acids (FFA) (b). While lipolytic activity is higher in visceral adipose tissue than subcutaneous adipose, upper body subcutaneous adipose is a major contributor to the increased levels of FFA 328, 329. High levels of FFA can mediate muscle (c) 330 and liver (d) 331 insulin resistance. Hepatic uptake of FFA leads to increased liver lipid (e), which is associated with liver insulin resistance (f) 332 and promotes very‐low‐density lipoprotein (VLDL) production/secretion (g) and dyslipidaemia (h) 328, 333. Increased exposure to circulating triglyceride promotes intramyocellular lipid accumulation (i) 334, which is associated with insulin resistance (j) and type 2 diabetes 332. Inflammatory factors released by insulin‐resistant visceral adipose tissue (k) may also promote hepatic insulin resistance (l) and lipid accumulation (m) 119.

  • May xx, 2018 - Fructose

    Fructose and Obesity
    Source: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/obr.12699

    Potential mechanisms by which consumption of fructose promotes the development of metabolic syndrome The initial phosphorylation of dietary fructose in the liver is largely catalysed by fructokinase C (a), which is not regulated by hepatic energy status 122, 123. This results in unregulated fructose uptake and metabolism by the liver. The excess substrate leads to increased de novo lipogenesis (DNL) (b) 117, 127. DNL increases the intra‐hepatic lipid supply directly 127-129, via synthesis of fatty acids (c), and indirectly by inhibiting fatty acid oxidation (d) 120, 127. Increased intra‐hepatic lipid content promotes very‐low‐density lipoprotein (VLDL) production and secretion (e) 130. This leads to increased levels of circulating triglyceride (TG) and low‐density lipoprotein particles (dyslipidaemia) (f) 131, risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) (g). Increased levels of hepatic lipid may also promote hepatic insulin resistance 132 by increasing levels of diacylglycerol, which may activate novel protein kinase C and lead to serine phosphorylation (serine P) of the insulin receptor and insulin receptor substrate 1 and impaired insulin action (h) 335. Because of selective insulin resistance, DNL is even more strongly activated in the insulin resistant liver (i) 336, which has the potential to generate a vicious cycle (circular arrows) that would be perpetuated by sustained fructose consumption. This cycle would be expected to further exacerbate VLDL production and secretion via increased intra‐hepatic lipid supply 130. Hepatic insulin resistance also promotes VLDL production/secretion (j) by increasing apolipoprotein B availability 337, 338 and apolipoprotein CIII synthesis 339 and by up‐regulating microsomal TG transfer protein expression (MTP) 336. This exacerbates and sustains exposure to circulating TG, leading to intramyocellular lipid accumulation (k) 334, impaired insulin signalling and whole‐body insulin resistance (l) 332. The fructokinase‐catalysed phosphorylation of fructose to fructose‐1‐phosphate, which results in conversion of adenosine triphosphate to adenosine monophosphate and a depletion of inorganic phosphate, leads to uric acid production via the purine degradation pathway (m) 121, 123-125. High levels of uric acid are associated and may contribute to increased risk for development of fatty liver (n) and CVD (o) 340-342. Fructose exposure in the intestine (p) 134, 135 and liver (q) 136 and fructose‐induced increases of visceral adipose (r) may promote inflammatory responses 117, 343 that further promote liver lipid accumulation (s) and/or impair hepatic insulin signalling (t) 119.

    National Women's Week
    Graphic source:https://www.womenshealth.gov/resources/images/nwhw/nwhw_logo.png

    "National Women's Health Week is an observance led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health. The goal is to empower women to make their health a priority. National Women's Health Week also serves as a time to help women understand what it means to be well.

    What does it mean to be a well woman?
    It's a state of mind. It's being as healthy as you can be. And, most importantly, it's about taking steps to improve your physical and mental health:

    • Visit a health care professional to receive regular checkups and preventive screenings.
    • Get active.
    • Eat healthy.
    • Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.
    • Avoid unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, texting while driving, and not wearing a seatbelt or bicycle helmet."
