If you yearn to be among those who sail through the years without picking up a pound for each birthday, Harvard doctors have a game plan for you. And it goes far beyond the old "eat less, exercise more" mantra.
Reducing your intake of specific foods, sleeping 6 to 8 hours nightly, getting some exerciseand turning off the TV all predicted less weight gain with time, they found. They also found five foods strongly linked with weight gain and five others linked with less than average weight gain. The new research, he says, ''shows how multiple lifestyle factors, including diet, were related to long-term weight gain.
The researchers wanted to focus on what le to long-term weight gain and why the average adult gains about a pound a year. Every four years, they evaluated the links between changes in lifestyle habits and weight. On average, the study participants gained an average of 3.
That added up to nearly 17 pounds after 20 years. At the start of the three studies, the men and women's average ages were 37, 50, and When the researchers looked more closely, they found five foods associated with the greatest weight gain over the study period:.
They also found five foods linked with less gain and even weight loss :. Rather, he says, focusing on the quality of food -- not simply total calories, or fat grams, or grams of carbohydrates -- seems most important in avoiding weight gain.
They write: "A habitual energy imbalance of about 50 to kilocalories per day may be sufficient to cause the gradual weight gain seen in most persons. Yogurt was perhaps the biggest surprise on the list of foods linked with less weight gain, Mozaffarian says. The researchers aren't sure why.
They cite some other research finding that changes in gut bacteria from eating yogurt may help in weight control. Or those who eat yogurt may have other healthy habits. Changes in diet had the strongest link to weight gain. However, the researchers also found that those who slept 6 to 8 hours a night gained less than those who slept less than 6 or more than 8.
Weight gain was also linked with changes in the amount of television viewing and changes in physical activity. He sees that as both ''a danger and an opportunity. He is not suggesting people completely avoid foods linked with weight gain. Mozaffarian reports receiving honoraria from Unilever, Aramark, and other food-related companies for speaking on diet-related topics. The study provides some good support for factors other experts have assumed are linked with weight gain, says Connie Diekman, RD, director of university nutrition at Washington University in St.
She reviewed the study but was not involved in it. Diekman says that among the most interesting findings is that the lower the intake of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and yogurt, the more ificant the weight gain. That result jibes with the recommendation in the Dietary Guidelines to shift food intake to more plant foods.
Another important finding, she tells WebMD, is that "a shift in calorie intake of as little as 50 to calories a day may be all it takes to gain or lose weight. These small steps can then become the steps on the path you need to make more changes to achieve, and maintain, a healthier weight.
