If you are just edging over your ideal weight and or your blood profile picture is pointing to some mild cardiovascular & metabolic issues then just a few small tweaks to your current dietary and lifestyle pattern may be all that’s needed!
According to researchers at Duke University in North Carolina, USA, cutting the equivalent of a bagel or a couple of biscuits from your daily diet may be enough to improve biomarkers for metabolic syndrome such as high blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
The trial, part of an ongoing project with the National Institutes of Health called CALERIE (Comprehensive Assessment of Long-term Effects of Reducing Intake of Energy) continues to build on the researchers’ hypothesis that it’s not just weight loss that leads to these improvements, but some more complex metabolic change triggered by eating fewer calories than what’s expended.
The results of this study shows that even a moderate modification to our daily food intake over an extended period can reduce the risk factors for diabetes and cardiovascular disease and reduces the lifetime risk of developing some of the most common, disabling, and expensive diseases.
If you are mildly overweight or just want to lose a few kilograms and would like to be just a little more active and improve your blood profile picture then just cutting out some daily nutritional indiscretions may be the answer.
While it’s true that we do live in an obesogenic environment with ready access to highly processed and highly palatable food, learning to make better but still delicious food choices is part of the answer.
