The Combined Portfolio Diet and Exercise Study

The purpose of this study is to determine whether a dietary portfolio of cholesterol-lowering foods (viscous fibres, soy protein, plant sterols and nuts) further enhanced by increased levels of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) and low glycemic index foods; together with a structured exercise program reduce the progression of carotid and coronary atheromatous lesions, Low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C), and blood pressure, while reducing the number of individuals requiring statins.

Behavioral - Portfolio diet and structured exercise

Diet: Foods will contribute 9 g/1000 kcal viscous fibre as β-glucan (oats, barley and oat bran breads) and psyllium (cereal), 1 g plant sterol/1000 kcal diet (in sterol margarine), 22.5 g soy protein/1000 kcal (soy burgers and other soy meat analogues, soy milks, yogurts and cheese) and 22.5 g nuts/1000 kcal and increased MUFA (as olive and canola oils, avocados, nuts etc.). The glycemic index will be reduced from 83 to 70 GI units (bread scale). Exercise: A program encouraging 150 minutes of e ...read more on ClinicalTrials.org

Behavioral - DASH-like diet and structured exercise

Diet: Participants will be encouraged to follow a diet of whole grain foods (brown rice, whole wheat breads, muffins and breakfast cereals), reduce meat consumption, choose low fat dairy foods and a control margarine. Exercise: A physical activity/exercise program encouraging 150 minutes of exercise, based on the exercise program developed at the Quebec Heart and Lung Institute. A short submaximal treadmill test will be used to assess cardiorespiratory fitness. A kinesiologist will work with par ...read more on ClinicalTrials.org
