1. Preisendanz, Sara. Effect of resistant starch intake on satiety, bowel habits, and total calorie, macronutrient and fiber intake.

Degree: 2015, Texas Woman's University

The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of resistant starch (RS) intake on satiety, bowel habits and intake of energy, macronutrient and fiber. Twenty physically inactive, otherwise healthy participants, aged 18-50 years, with BMI between 27-35 kg/m2, were randomly assigned to one of two groups. While participants in the treatment group (n=13) consumed muffins supplemented with 10 grams RS, control participants (n=7) consumed muffins with no additional RS for a period of six weeks. Satiety was measured at baseline and end of treatment using a visual analog scale; and participants recorded a three-day food journal and bowel habit log at baseline, midpoint and final time point. RS intake did not significantly change perceived satiety, bowel habits, or energy or macronutrient intake. However, participants in the treatment group recorded significantly greater fiber intake at the end of the study when compared to baseline (p=0.002) as well as compared to the control group (p<0.001). The result suggests that added RS increases fiber intake without increasing total energy intake, which will be beneficial for increasing daily intake to the recommended range.

2. Wai-Chung Fung, Jacqueline. The interrelationships among nutritional practices, exercise behaviors, and psychological status.

Degree: MS, Nutrition and Food Sciences, 1996, Texas Woman's University

The purpose of this research study was to investigate the interrelationships among nutritional practices, exercise behaviors, and psychological status. A questionnaire which included a wide range of questions concerning dietary and nutritional practices, exercise regime, and psychological status was developed by the researcher. The questionnaire was administered to a convenience sample of employees on the Denton campus of Texas Woman's University (n=939). A total of 347 completed and usable questionnaires were returned for a 37% usable rate. Results of this study suggest that this sample had better health practices in the area of nutrition than in the areas of exercise or psychological status. In addition, findings also indicate that there is a strong link among nutritional practices, exercise behaviors, and psychological status. Advisors/Committee Members: Alford, Betty (Committee Chair), Rager, Robin (committee member), Imrhan, Vicky (committee member).

3. De Sanchez, Elizabeth Solis. Relationship of leptin concentrations with insulin, glucose, lipoproteins, cholesterol, triglycerides, and body mass index in obese children in Monterrey, Mexico.

Degree: 2004, Texas Woman's University

Obesity in children is one of the most prevalent chronic diseases. There is a growing awareness of the long term complications. Leptin is a hormone secreted by the fat cell. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between leptin concentrations and insulin, glucose, high density lipoproteins (HDL-C), low density lipoproteins (LDL-C), total cholesterol, triglycerides, and body mass index (BMI) in Mexican obese children from Monterrey, Nuevo León, México. One hundred children from 6 to 12 years were studied. This included 24 children with obesity who participated in a summer camp for weight reduction and in a multidisciplinary treatment for 6 months, 41 obese children without intervention, and 35 non obese children and no intervention. Anthropornetric and biochemical determinations were at baseline and after 6 months. To measure obesity, body mass index was determined using the parameters of the United States of America growth charts (CDC, USA, 2000). Serum leptin, glucose, insulin, HDL-C, LDL-C, total cholesterol, and triglycerides were all measured. The serum leptin levels were significantly higher in obese children than in non obese children [baseline 15.85 ng/mL vs. 5.43 ng/mL (z = −5.201, p < .001); 6 months 17.54 ng/mL vs. 7.10 ng/mL (z = −5.215, p < .001)]. Plasma leptin levels decreased in obese children with intervention (−4.44 ng/mL less leptin, p < .05). Baseline leptin concentration was significantly correlated with insulin for all three groups; obese with intervention (r = .670), obese no intervention (r = .748), and non obese (r = .670). Baseline BMI was significantly correlated with baseline leptin for the obese children who received the intervention (r = .569) and those who did not (r = .453). This study shows the concentration levels of leptin in Mexican obese and non obese children, as well the importance of leptin relationships with insulin and body mass index. Further research is necessary to establish the role of leptin with clinical and biochemical parameters in Mexican obese children.
