We aimed to determine whether British Asians of Indian or Pakistani descent differed in their baseline characteristics and in response to a twelve-week, very-low-calorie diet (VLCD). We then assessed whether or not a VLCD had a different effect on As... Read More about Weight loss and ethnicity: a cohort study of the effects induced by a very low calorie diet..

Evidence from the literature supports the safe use of very-low-energy diets (VLED) for up to 3 months in supervised conditions for patients who fail to meet a target weight loss using a standard low-fat, reduced-energy approach. There is, however, a... Read More about Very-low-energy diets and morbidity: a systematic review of longer-term evidence..

Effect of load positioning on the kinematics and kinetics of weighted vertical jumps. (2012)
