A randomized trial of a hypocaloric high-protein diet, with and without exercise, on weight loss, fitness, and markers of the Metabolic Syndrome in overweight and obese women

URL: https://www.nrcresearchpress.com/doi/abs/10.1139/H07-059#.XXYblpyxXys

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.

Meat and soy protein affect calcium homeostasis in healthy women

URL: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/16772455/

Journal: The Journal of Nutrition

 Publication Date: 07/2006

 Summary: These data indicate that when soy protein is substituted for meat protein, there is an acute decline in dietary calcium bioavailability.

Dietary protein intake and renal function

URL: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/16174292/

Journal: Nutrition & Metabolism

 Publication Date: 09/2005

 Summary: This paper reviews the available evidence that increased dietary protein intake is a health concern in terms of the potential to initiate or promote renal disease. While protein restriction may be appropriate for treatment of existing kidney disease, we find no significant evidence for a detrimental effect of high protein intakes on kidney function in healthy persons after centuries of a high protein Western diet.

Dietary protein, calcium metabolism, and skeletal homeostasis revisited

URL: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/12936953/

Journal: The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

Publication Date: 09/2003

 Summary: Dietary protein intakes at and below 0.8 g/kg were associated with a probable reduction in intestinal calcium absorption sufficient to cause secondary hyperparathyroidism. The long-term consequences of these low-protein diet–induced changes in mineral metabolism are not known, but the diet could be detrimental to skeletal health. Of concern are several recent epidemiologic studies that demonstrate reduced bone density and increased rates of bone loss in individuals habitually consuming low-protein diets. Studies are needed to determine whether low protein intakes directly affect rates of bone resorption, bone formation, or both.

Journal: Journal of Nutrition

 Publication Date: 04/2003

Summary: Calcium retention was measured in postmenopausal women on both a high meat and low meat diet. There was no significant difference in calcium retention beween diets

Characterization of meat consumption and risk of colorectal cancer in Cordoba, Argentina

URL: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/12507631/

Journal: Nutrition

 Publication Date: 01/2003

Summary: Comparison of food frequency questionairre between patients with colorectal cancer and hospitalized control patients in Brazil. Consumption of total meat, red meat, and other types of meat were not related to increased risk of CRC. However, an increased risk of CRC was found for those consuming relatively large amounts of cold cuts and sausages and bovine viscera
