PGC-1α activation: a therapeutic target for type 2 diabetes?

Eat Weight Disord 2018 Nov 29. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

Science College of Jiangxi Agricultural University, Nanchang, 330045, Jiangxi, China.

Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ coactivator-1α (PGC-1α) has gained popularity as a very attractive target for diabetic therapies due to its role in lipid and glucose metabolism. Pharmacological activation of PGC-1α is thought to elicit health benefits. However, this notion has been questioned by increasing evidence, which suggests that insulin resistant is exacerbated when PGC-1α expression is far beyond normal physiological limits and is prevented under the condition of PGC-1α deficiency.

Is obesity associated with impaired reaction time in youth?

Eat Weight Disord 2018 Nov 16. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Department of Psychology, University of Mohaghegh Ardabili, Ardabil, Iran.

Background And Purpose: Recent research demonstrates a significant relationship between weight status and impaired reaction time in young, adult, and elderly individuals. However, most such studies were performed on small samples, used only body mass index as the body obesity index, used simple reaction time, and oftentimes did not consider some potential confounders such as age, socioeconomic status, or physical activity in their studies. The present study explored the relationship between various reaction time tasks and various obesity indices in a sample of youth. Read More

Spirituality and eating disorder risk factors in African American women.

Eat Weight Disord 2018 Nov 14. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Oklahoma City VA, 921 NE 13th Street, Oklahoma City, OK, 73104, USA.

Purpose: The increased prevalence of body dissatisfaction and eating disordered behaviors (EDBs) among African American women warrants further examination of critical factors that may contribute to this recent trend. This study sought to investigate whether ethnic identification, spirituality, and internalization of the thin ideal would be associated with decreased body dissatisfaction and EDBs.

Method: A convenience sample of 55 African American college women was recruited from a college campus. Read More

Self-to-others and self-to-self relationships: paths to understanding the valence of body image and eating attitudes in emerging adult women.

Eat Weight Disord 2018 Nov 14. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

CINEICC, Centre for Research in Neuropsychology and Cognitive Behavioural Intervention, Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences, University of Coimbra, Rua do Colégio Novo, Apartado 6153, 3001-802, Coimbra, Portugal.

Purpose: Interpersonal and intrapersonal factors contributing to body appreciation in emerging adult women remain poorly explored. Thus, the present study aimed to test the impact of early memories of warmth and safeness with peers, self-compassion, and social safeness, in body appreciation and in disordered eating attitudes and behaviours.

Methods: A total of 387 women aged between 18 and 25 completed a set of self-report questionnaires. Read More

Confirmatory factor analysis of the parental feeding style questionnaire with a preschool sample.

Eat Weight Disord 2018 Nov 13. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Department of Psychology, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, NE, USA.

Purpose: Despite being widely used, there has not yet been a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) on the English version of the Parental Feeding Style Questionnaire (PFSQ). Preschool is a critical time to assess parental feeding styles, and the PFSQ is one of the few measures that can be used with young children. As such, the current study conducted the first CFA on the PFSQ in an English-speaking sample in the United States to establish preliminary evidence of its factor structure. Read More

Definition and diagnostic criteria for orthorexia nervosa: a narrative review of the literature.

Eat Weight Disord 2018 Nov 9. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Food Science and Human Nutrition Research Unit, Medical Pathophysiology, Food Science and Endocrinology Section, Experimental Medicine Department, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

Aim: In some cases, detrimental consequences on health are generated by self-imposed dietary rules intended to promote health. The pursuit of an "extreme dietary purity" due to an exaggerated focus on food may lead to a disordered eating behavior called "orthorexia nervosa" (ON). ON raises a growing interest, but at present there is no universally shared definition of ON, the diagnostic criteria are under debate, and the psychometric instruments used in the literature revealed some flaws.

To contemplate or not to contemplate evaluating a preliminary intervention proposal in an outpatient setting: the contemplation therapy group.

Eat Weight Disord 2018 Nov 9. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Cardiff Metropolitan University, Cardiff, UK.

Purpose: The concept for the contemplation group intervention was derived from motivational interviewing (MI) to support people suffering from an eating disorder who are reluctant to engage with treatment. This evaluation focuses on the contemplation group run by the eating disorder services in the Cardiff and Vale area between 2012 and 2016 to investigate the outcomes for participants and implications for working with people suffering from an eating disorder who are ambivalent about change.

Method: Quantitative measures were used to assess eating disorder symptomatology, motivation to change and location within the stages of change model. Read More

Weight and age do not account for a worse executive functioning among BED-obese patients.

Eat Weight Disord 2018 Oct 31. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Department of Health Sciences, University Magna Graecia of Catanzaro, Viale Europa, 88100, Catanzaro, Italy.

Purpose: Research has demonstrated impaired executive functioning among Binge Eating Disorder (BED) patients that could be influenced by age and weight. We aim to compare decision-making, set-shifting and central coherence between BED-obese patients (BED-Ob), non-BED-obese patients (non-BED-Ob), and normal-weight healthy controls (NW-HC) without the influence of these variables.

Methods: Overall, 35 BED-Ob, 32 non-BED-Ob and 26 NW-HC participants completed the Iowa Gambling Task, the Trail Making Test and the Rey-Osterrieth Complex Figure Test. Read More

Majority of female bariatric patients retain an obese identity 18-30 months after surgery.

Eat Weight Disord 2018 Oct 31. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Department of Psychology, East Carolina University, Greenville, USA.

Purpose: When bariatric surgery is performed, a successful outcome is usually described as % total weight lost (EWL) or a change in BMI. These definitions fail to address the importance of post-operative psychosocial adjustment. Previous research has alluded to a 'mind-body lag' where the patient's experienced body feels larger than their physically smaller post-operative body, perhaps as a result of amygdalae conditioning.

Verbal emotional expressiveness in women with eating disorders: recalling autobiographical memories.

Eat Weight Disord 2018 Oct 31. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

School of Psychology, University of Minho, Braga, Portugal.

Purpose: This study aimed to study autobiographical memories in women with eating disorders regarding emotional verbal expression, according to age. Our hypotheses are threefold: due to the emotional avoidance that occurs in women with eating disorders, in the younger ages, it was hypothesized that younger participants with anorexia and bulimia nervosa will present a lower number of emotional expressions in the descriptions of their memories than women without eating disorders; that older participants with anorexia and bulimia nervosa will present a greater number of negative verbal expressions in the reports of their memories than women without eating disorders, given the development of negative bias that occurs with age in women with eating disorders; and that women with eating disorders will use more words in a description of their sad memories than women without eating disorders because of the existence of negative bias.

Methods: With a sample of 90 women and combining age and the presence or absence of eating disorders, we formed four groups. Read More

Predictors of the transition from metabolically healthy obesity to unhealthy obesity.

Eat Weight Disord 2018 Dec 29;23(6):739-744. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Dipartimento di Scienza Mediche e Riabilitative, Istituto Auxologico Italiano, IRCCS, Via Ariosto 13, 20145, Milan, Italy.

Purpose: Evidence that metabolically healthy obesity (MHO) is a stable benign condition is unclear. The aim of this study was to estimate the transition of MHO subjects to unhealthy obesity (occurrence of cardio-metabolic events and/or risk factors) and its predictors.

Methods: We conducted an explorative follow-up study in a subset of MHO patients > 40 years without any cardio-metabolic risk factors and with normal LDL cholesterol (LDLc) levels, identified among 1530 obese patients. Read More

Disordered eating behaviors in adolescents with celiac disease.

Eat Weight Disord 2018 Oct 27. Epub 2018 Oct 27.

Pediatric Endocrine and Diabetes Unit, Chaim Sheba Medical Center, Ramat-Gan, Israel.

Purpose: Celiac disease (CD) is a chronic immune-mediated systemic disease characterized by inflammation and villous atrophy of the small intestine. A strict, lifelong gluten-free diet (GFD) is the only treatment for CD. Disordered eating behaviors (DEBs) prevail in adolescence and young adulthood, and confer a risk of developing into full-blown eating disorders. Read More
