Post Nutrition info,also re: high-fat

The following sections marked: .... are excerpts from the listed conference report. Some good info to, perhaps, help make wise diet choices.

Conference Report
Current Issues Concerning Optimum Nutrition and Health Outcomes
The UK Nutrition Society: Summer Meeting and Nutrition Society Diamond Jubilee Celebrations
July 10-12, 2001
University of Sheffield, Sheffield

Susan A. New, PhD

....Two important plenary papers were presented on the health implications of low-fat diets. Dr AA Astrup[15] (The Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University, Frederiksberg, Denmark) discussed important experimental, observational, and interventional human studies that have shown convincingly that a diet low in carbohydrate but high in fat is energy dense, thus increasing the risk of weight gain and obesity. The obesity-promoting effect of a high-fat diet is enhanced in susceptible subjects, particularly in individuals who lead a sedentary life and who have a genetic predisposition to obesity. Diets low in fat but high in both protein and carbohydrate have been shown to prevent weight gain in subjects of normal weight as well as causing weight loss in overweight subjects, often about 3-4 kg.

....The clinical relevance of the papers presented and discussed at the Diamond Jubilee Meeting of the UK Nutrition Society are as follows:

The importance of early nutrition to pregnancy outcome is vital. Optimum maternal nutrition throughout the 3 trimester stages of pregnancy and for the period of lactation is likely to result in positive health outcomes for both the mother and child. Breastfeeding not only has numerous health benefits to the infant and indeed the mother, but is cost-effective.

Low-fat diets do not result in micronutrient deficiency and are associated with both weight loss and improved general health as long as the fat content in the diet is not replaced with high simple sugary foods and alcohol.

High fruit and vegetable consumption is associated with numerous health benefits, including positive effects on immune function and cardiovascular risk factors. There is as well a growing body of evidence suggesting an important role for these nutrients in optimizing bone health.

Specific population groups are at risk for undernutrition both in general terms as well as with regard to specific nutrients, including the elderly (particularly those living in nursing homes) and vegetarians/vegans.
