Food Research: High fat/low carb diet could combat schizophrenia ♦ Almonds may help augment nutrients in diet ♦Coffee may improve athletic endurance performance

High fat/low carb diet could combat schizophrenia A diet favored by body-builders may be effective in treating schizophrenia, suggest researchers. The ketogenic diet may work by providing alternative energy sources in the form of so-called ketone bodies (products of fat breakdown) and by helping to circumvent abnormally functioning cellular energy pathways in the brains of schizophrenics
Fish oil helps transform fat cells from storage to burning Fish oil transforms fat-storage cells into fat-burning cells, which may reduce weight gain in middle age. Fish oil activates receptors in the digestive tract, fires the sympathetic nervous system, and induces storage cells to metabolize fat.
Coffee may improve athletic endurance performance The caffeine in a morning cup of coffee could help improve athletic endurance.
Almonds may help augment nutrients in diet Eating a moderate amount of almonds each day may enrich the diets of adults and their young children.When parents and children were eating almonds, their Healthy Eating Index increased for total protein foods, seafood and plant proteins and fatty acids, while they ate fewer empty calories
