Struggling to meet your fitness-related New Year’s Resolution?  Confused on which diets are actually worth attempting to maintain with cafeteria food? Data from researchers at the University of Toulouse suggests that dietary habits centered around new guidelines could aid in the study of how adipose cells, or fat cells, respond to weight control. This study consisted of 135 obese women who were put on a strict dietary regimen.  Lipidome, or total number of fat cells, and gene expression in each woman was monitored throughout eight weeks. Data comparison between pre caloric and post caloric intervention revealed various genetic tendencies for fat storage between experimental groups.

The results from this trial may pave the way for new approaches to dieting that target fat cell growth, and consequently expose fad diets.
