The  womens health initiative trial started in 1992 and cost 600 million dollars.  They trialed 49,000 women on  low fat dieting or to continue as normal. They were followed for 8 years.  The group on the low fat diet reduced fat consumption by 25%.

At the end of 8 years there was virtually no difference in weight for both groups. There was no reduction in heart attack ,stroke or cancer risk.

The Predimed  Study

7,000 Spaniards were allocated to either a low fat or Mediterranean diet  starting in 1992.

The  results?   For  Mediterranean dieting there was a 30% reduction in heart attack or stroke risk as compared with the low fat diet.  There was a 50% reduction in diabetic risk.  Also there was a 70% reduction in breast cancer risk.  There were no benefits seen in the low fat  group.  There is also a reduction in dementia risk.

It is believed that Olive oil has certain properties possibly from Oleic acid that confers the benefits. Experts world wide now agree that  Mediterranean dieting has significant benefits.

Our bodies use two main types of fuel. Fat and carbohydrates – and most of us wish we could tell them to burn a bit more of our fat reserves!

Well, some new research suggests that there is a way, just by timing when we eat with when we exercise.  It might be possible to change our eating habits around exercise to increase the amount of fatty tissue our bodies are burning throughout the day.
