Early Markers of Adult Obesity: A Review
Journal Article 1/1/2012
​The purpose of this review was to evaluate factors in early childhood that are the most significant predictors of the development of obesity in adulthood.
Energy Balance and Its Components: Implications for Body Weight
Journal Article 1/1/2012
The Committee on Energy Balance and Active Lifestyle organized a consensus-style conference to assess the state of the science on understanding energy balance and the development of parameters to help individuals understand and achieve energy balance.
Do Dietary Supplements Improve Micronutrient Sufficiency
Journal Article 1/1/2012
​The objective of this paper was to examine if children use supplements to fill gaps in nutritionally inadequate diets or whether supplements contribute to already adequate or excessive micronutrient intakes from foods.
Introduction to the Workshop
Journal Article 1/1/2012
​While there is a growing body of research on Low-Calorie Sweeteners the information has not been pulled together cohesively to allow an evaluation of the existing science. This one and a half day workshop aimed to clarify the state of the science around the utility of low-calorie sweeteners (LCS) for weight management.
Mechanisms for Sweetness
Journal Article 1/1/2012
This article reviews these data,with a particular focus on the elucidation of the sweet taste receptor, its location and actions in taste transduction in the mouth, its nontaste functions in the gastrointestinal tract (e.g., in enteroendocrine cells), and the brain circuitry involved in the sensory processing of sweet taste.
Sweetness and Food Preference
Journal Article 1/1/2012
Throughout evolution, sweetness has had a role in human nutrition, helping to orient feeding behavior toward foods providing both energy and essential nutrients. However, their use has led to further concerns that dissociating sweetness from energy may disrupt the balance between taste response, appetite, and consumption patterns, especially during development.
Sweetness, Satiation, and Satiety
Journal Article 1/1/2012
Many studies have examined the various sensory, cognitive, postingestive, and postabsorptive factors that can potentially contribute to the inhibition of eating, with careful attention to study design, crucial for correct interpretation of the results. This review discusses the satiating power of foods and drinks containing nutritive and nonnutritive sweeteners.
The Use of Low-Calorie Sweeteners by Adults: Impact on Weight Management
Journal Article 1/1/2012
The aim of this review is to gain clarity on the role of LCS in weight management and their impact on diet quality. In addition, because the majority of studies aimed at identifying associations between low-calorie sweeteners (LCS) and these outcomes are based on observational data, the pitfalls in designing and evaluating data from observational studies are also discussed.
The Use of Low-Calorie Sweeteners by Children: Implications for Weight Management
Book 1/1/2012
The rise in pediatric obesity since the 1970s has been well established in the United States and is becoming a major concern worldwide. As a potential means to help slow the obesity epidemic, low-calorie sweeteners (LCS) have gained attention as dietary tools to assist in adherence to weight loss plans or prevention of excess weight gain.
Workshop Summary
Journal Article 1/1/2012
The hope was expressed that researchers could begin to learn why individuals choose to use low-calorie sweeteners (LCS) or products containing them, because few data are presently available on this topic.
