Journal: Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism

 Publication Date: 06/2007

 Summary: A high-protein diet was superior to a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet either alone or when combined with an aerobic/resistance-training program in promoting weight loss and nitrogen balance, while similarly improving body composition and risk factors for the Metabolic Syndrome in overweight and obese Canadian women.

Strength and Muscle Quality in a Well‐Functioning Cohort of Older Adults: The Health, Aging and Body Composition Study

URL: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1046/j.1532-5415.2003.51105.x

Journal: Journal of the American Geriatrics Society

Publication Date: 02/2003

Summary: In this older cohort, lower strength with older age was predominantly due to a lower muscle mass. Age and body fat also had significant inverse associations with strength and muscle quality. Both preservation of lean mass and prevention of gain in fat may be important in maintaining strength and muscle quality in old age.
