Nutritional risk factors linked with obesity: excess exposure in males?


Fatter subjects tend to eat less than leaner subjects. In males, it is associated with a lower proportion of glucides and a higher proportion of lipids in the energy intake. This is not observed in females.

Ernährungs-Risikofaktoren bei Fettleibigkeit: sind Männer exponierter?


Fette Personen neigen dazu, mässiger zu essen als magere. Diese Tendenz äussert sich bei den Männern durch einen verminderten Kohlenhydrate- und einen erhöhten Fettanteil der energiespendenden Nahrungskomponents. Sie ist bei den Frauen nicht feststellbar.
