The effect of health-promoting education in nutrition and the resultant changes in eating habits, with a particular reference to the substitution of sucrose with starch and a reduced lipid consumption, on the blood levels of insulin, cortisol, glucose, triacylglycerols, and total lipids in mature obese women was analysed.
The levels of all the components analysed were found to decrease statistically significantly (P = 0.01) after two months on a modified diet.
The levels, except those of insulin, did not change after the subsequent two months of the diet ; at the end of the fourth month, the insulin level was statistically significantly (P ¾ 0.05) lower than that recorded after two months.
In addition, while maintaining the energetic value of the adjusted diet at a level similar to that of the uncorrected one, a slow but consistent reductions of the subjects'body weight (BMI) and waist to hip ratio (WHR) were recorded.
