How vegetables make the meal (11/30/2012)

How vegetables make the mealAdding vegetables to a meal can make you a better cook and a better person. A new Cornell University study published in Public Health Nutrition, found that adding vegetables to the dinner led to more positive evaluations of both the main entree and the cook. Given that vegetables are served with only 23 percent of meals, these results could provide added motivation for parents to serve vegetables with dinner. ...> Full Article

Limiting carbs to dinner reduces diabetes and cardiovascular risks (11/14/2012)

An experimental diet with carbohydrates eaten mostly at dinner could benefit people suffering from severe and morbid obesity, say Hebrew University of Jerusalem researchers. The diet influences secretion patterns of hormones responsible for hunger and satiety and hormones associated with metabolic syndrome. It can help dieters persist over the long run and reduce risk factors for diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The findings suggest a dietary alternative for people who have difficulty persisting in diets. ...> Full Article
