Abstract or Summary
  • The case study, Implications of Energy Density on Weight Loss, examined the relationship between the consumption of energy dense foods such as whole fruits, whole vegetables and fiber with weight loss. The case study examined four participants from the LITEN Up study, which focused on the effects of a diet and physical activity intervention on the reduction of risk factors for metabolic syndrome in sedentary, premenopausal (21-48y), overweight (BMI 26-32kg/m2), abdominally obese (waist circumference [WC>80cm; 31.50in]), apparently healthy women. Two of the four participants were selected based on their responsiveness (≥1lb/wk weight loss) to the intervention and were referred to as responders (R1, R2), while the remaining two participants were selected for their un-responsiveness (≤0.5lb/wk weight loss) to the intervention and were referred to as non-responders (NR1, NR2). The case study concluded that weight loss occurred with an increase in intake of whole fruits, whole vegetables and fiber. It also demonstrated that decreasing the consumption of energy dense beverages is important for weight loss.
