ABSTRACT
This article reports that scientists at Tufts University conducted a follow-up study to examine how food patterns affected changes in waist size and body mass index. The ratio of waist-to-hip size, and waist size alone, can be indicators of abdominal fat, which has been associated with cardiovascular disease, premature death, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and hypertension. Because foods are not consumed in isolation, research on food patterns may be useful in helping people who are trying to control their weight. The study compared adherence to certain food patterns with changes in waist circumference among 459 healthy adult men and women for an average of two years. The participants in the study kept seven-day food records that were used to determine food patterns.
