Is Insulin Sensitivity Driven by Baseline Intestinal Microbiota Composition?
The intestinal microbiota has been implicated in insulin resistance, in theory at least. The point of this study was to find if the theory was true or not.
Our point of view? Even though the authors conclude that their results confirm the theory, their comparisons were based on within-group conparisons instead of between-group.
Good job, reviewers!
US Congress admits it: USDA recommendations junk…
…while in Belgium the “new” dietary guidelines are the same as the old ones
Oh, so you thought that the PURE study was going to make a difference? And open up the door for millions of lawsuits against dietary associations and MDs? Yeah, sorry but not going to happen. Accept this as the future recommendation for decades to come in spite of now being recognized as the pillar behind all-cause mortality.
Eating whole eggs promotes greater post-exercise muscle protein synthesis than the same protein as egg whites? Nope

Our point of view? Maybe, maybe not. While it is a possibility, the study only used 18 grams of each to make the comparison, an amount much lower than the optimal amount to cause MPS and of course whole eggs have more calories than egg whites so they are bound to cause more anabolism.
