Diet and Nutrition after the PURE study | European Heart Journal

Dietary modification on a global scale has the potential of reducing cardiovascular disease (CVD) by 50%. There is unequivocal evidence that consumption of industrialized trans unsaturated fats is associated with increased cardiovascular mortality. Despite contrary evidence from short-term meta-analyses, saturated fats are also partly condemned as a potential macronutrient enemy for cardiovascular health.1 There is a general consensus among the scientific community that lowering saturated fat is beneficial in reducing the risk of CVD.

The 2016 European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines recommend a total fat intake of ≤30% of which ≤10% should consist of saturated fats. The guidelines also suggest decreasing saturated fat intake by substitution with polyunsaturated fatty acids.2 In June 2017, the American Heart Association’s (AHA) presidential advisory on dietary fats summarized that replacing saturated fat with polyunsaturated vegetable oil reduced CVD by 30%.3

The following recommendations may not apply to all species and are meant only as a guideline. Certain species may have special requirements not included here.

RECIPE: Get as much information as possible regarding the type of bird(s) that you own, put it all together, mix well with a dash of common sense, and then feed!

Dry Foods

My suggestions for a dry food diet consist of a good clean seed mix labeled for the right size bird (no wild bird food), hulled oats (oat groats), pellets, spray millet, and large mixed nuts. Even the smaller birds such

Cockatiels receiving proper nutrition sparkle with life. They are
healthy, alert, active, have thick glossy feathers and generally have a long
lifespan. Cockatiels require protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and
water just like humans do. In the past, cockatiels were fed a
seed based diet because seeds are inexpensive, readily available and they are eaten by birds in the wild.

Diet Review: Mediterranean Diet | The Nutrition Source

Finding yourself confused by the seemingly endless promotion of weight-loss strategies and diet plans? In this series, we take a look at some popular diets—and review the research behind them.

What Is It?

Chances are you have heard of the Mediterranean diet. If you have a chronic condition like heart disease or high blood pressure, your doctor may even have prescribed it to you. It is often promoted to decrease the risk of heart disease, depression, and dementia.

The traditional diets of countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea differ slightly so there are different versions of the Mediterranean diet. However, in 1993 the Harvard School of Public Health, Oldways Preservation and Exchange Trust, and the European Office of the World Health Organization introduced the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid as a guide to help familiarize people with the most common foods of the region. More of an eating pattern than a strictly regimented

    Diet Review: Ketogenic Diet for Weight Loss | The Nutrition Source

    Finding yourself confused by the seemingly endless promotion of weight-loss strategies and diet plans? In this series, we take a look at some popular diets—and review the research behind them.

    What is it?

    The ketogenic or “keto” diet is a low-carbohydrate, fat-rich eating plan that has been used for centuries to treat specific medical conditions. In the 19th century, the ketogenic diet was commonly used to help control diabetes. In 1920 it was introduced as an effective treatment for epilepsy in children in whom medication was ineffective. The ketogenic diet has also been tested and used in closely monitored settings for cancer, diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, and Alzheimer’s disease.

    However, this diet is gaining considerable attention as a potential weight-loss strategy due to the low-carb diet craze, which started in the 1970s with the Atkins diet (a very low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet, which was a commercial success and

    Diet (nutrition) – Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In nutrition, diet is the sum of food that is eaten by a person or another organism.[1]Dietary habits are the usual decisions someone or a culture makes when choosing what foods to eat. With the word diet, it is often expressed the use of specific intake of nutrition for health or weight-management reasons (with the two often being related). Although humans are omnivores, each culture and each person holds some food preferences or some food taboos, due to personal tastes or ethical reasons. Individual dietary choices may be more or less healthful. A proper nutrition requires a proper ingestion and, also important, the absorption of vitamins, minerals, and food energy in the form of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Dietary habits and choices play a significant role in health and mortality, and can also define cultures and play a role in religion.
