Research: Does chromium picolinate improve weight loss?

The evidence does not support chromium supplements for weight loss.  

Chromium picolinate has long been touted as a miracle supplement for weight loss and blood sugar stabilization.  It has been suggested as a supplement for diabetic type 2 patients because this metabolic syndrome should improve with blood sugar stabilization and weight loss.  

 

Research: High-protein diet improves weight loss and metabolic syndrome

A high-protein diet may be the answer for weight loss and metabolic syndrome.

The high protein lifestyle has been recommended for weight loss for years.  Some argue that fat and protein from meat is the cause of obesity.  Many are beginning to suggest that we should avoid protein and in particular meat because it makes us unhealthy.  I would argue that the answer is a more balanced meal.  Multiple studies have shown that protein-enriched diets can lead to greater weight loss and improvements in the markers of metabolic syndrome than standard protein diets.

 


Research: More weight loss equals even lower risk of metabolic syndrome

Research: More weight loss equals an even lower risk of metabolic syndrome – Higher amounts of weight loss appears to lead to an even lower risk of metabolic syndrome.  Although 5-10% weight loss should be the goal, we should continue to suggest more weight loss in certain groups that could use large amounts of weight loss.  I would recommend that you use this as motivation if you are at a high risk for metabolic syndrome.
