AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Does weight gain negate the beneficial effects of eating healthy foods?

Adult weight gain and obesity increase risks of chronic diseases. The effects of a positive energy balance could outweigh any beneficial effects of foods associated with reduced health risks such as vegetables, whole grains and omega-3 fatty acids. In subsets of adults who are either gaining weight or maintaining weight over time, does the impact of diet quality on health risks differ? Diet could be quantified by various diet indices such as the Healthy Eating Score or an Inflammatory Index.
