Editor's E-Note
Brighten the Holidays With Tasty Whole Grain Desserts

Who says healthful foods can’t taste delicious?

This holiday season you can tell clients two pieces of information about whole grains and alternative whole grains such as amaranth, barley, oats, and quinoa: They can help lower cholesterol and, therefore, the risk of cardiovascular disease, and there’s a host of delicious holiday dessert recipes they can make for themselves and their families.

In this month’s E-News Exclusive, Today’s Dietitian discusses the lipid-lowering effect of whole grain foods and the research behind it, and provides recipes for pumpkin pie, cookies, and more.

I wish everyone a happy holiday season with friends and family. Remember to visit the Today’s Dietitian website at www.TodaysDietitian.com to read the digital edition of the December issue for more seasonal articles and holiday recipes. We welcome your feedback at TDeditor@gvpub.com. And follow Today’s Dietitian on Facebook and Twitter too!

Here’s a discussion about the lipid-lowering effect of whole grain foods, the research supporting it, and holiday dessert recipes for health-conscious clients.

Field Notes
Dairy, Protein Improves Bone Health in Obese Women Dieters

A recent study accepted for publication in The Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism found that the consumption of dairy foods and a higher protein intake resulted in improvements in markers of bone formation and reductions in markers of bone degradation in overweight and obese young women over 16 weeks of diet- and exercise-induced weight loss.

Previous studies have shown that higher body weight is associated with greater bone mass and that weight loss through dieting can adversely affect bone health. While the individual effects of dairy, calcium, protein, and exercise on bone during weight loss have been studied in premenopausal women, no previous trial has combined all these strategies together into one study to support bone health.
