Quote:  Fabian Eichelmann, from the German Institute of Human Nutrition Potsdam-Rebrücke, and colleagues conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of intervention trials to examine the effect of plant-based diets on obesity-related inflammatory biomarker profiles. Twenty-nine of 2,583 publications, with 2,689 participants, met the inclusion criteria.
The researchers found that consumption of plant-based diets correlated with a decrease in the mean concentrations of C-reactive protein (effect size, −0.55 mg/L), interleukin-6 (effect size, −0.25 ng/L), and soluble intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (effect size, −25.07 ng/mL). For tumor necrosis factor-α, resistin, adiponectin, and leptin there were no substantial effects.
"Plant-based diets are associated with an improvement in obesity-related inflammatory profiles and could provide means for therapy and prevention of chronic disease risk," the authors write.

I think that a reason why I find that raw brocolli crowns taste so good with 100%-peanut natural peanut butter is because my diet is low in fat.

I worried in the past that I might be selecting foods with too little amount of fat. Seemed such a perverse consideration in this day and age, that I was a little startled it ever occurred to me. Nowadays, what with omega-3 supplements, walnuts, and even an egg thrown in occasionally, I'm surely not dancing along that close to the edge of the waterfalls in Rabbit Country anymore.

Indeed, I try to keep my fat intake pretty low, seeing how I tend toward high blood sugar and tend to eat more than I feel comfortable with, even though I am pretty skinny.  I seem to have a desire to eat a varied amount of fruits and vegetables, and the calories can add up even for those lighter things.  I even find that I have to eat less raw flaxseed meal than I want to.  I very often feel high enough in calorie intake that I can't spare adding a half teaspoon of olive oil to the vegetables that I cook (I always add it after cooking anyway, on rare occasions that I do these days).
