  • Effect of Intermittent Fasting On Body Weight, BMI, Waist Circumference
           and Percentage of Fat Mass in Adults with Overweight or Obesity

    • Abstract: Introduction: Fasting is a state of negative energy balance and, as such, different fasting regimens have been used to achieve weight loss as well as other health benefits. To evaluate the effects of intermittent fasting on body weight, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference and percentage of fat mass in people with overweight or obesity. Methods: an experimental study that included 22 adults of both sexes between 18 and 60 years of age who were overweight or obese. A gradual intermittent fasting intervention was performed starting with 10 hours of fasting the first week and ending with 16 hours of fasting in the last week (4 weeks). Variables such as body weight, BMI, waist circumference and percentage of fat mass were evaluated before and after the intervention in two groups, one with dietary recommendations and the other without recommendations (ad libitum). Results: 63.6% were female, the average age was 38.8 years, 68.1% had a university education level, 50% were single, and 36.3% were dedicated to their profession as a job occupation. At the end of the intervention, in both groups, body weight, BMI and waist circumference were significantly reduced, except for % fat mass.  On the contrary, when the results between groups were compared, no statistically significant differences were found for all the parameters (p>0.05) in all cases. Conclusion: Overall in the two groups, body weight, BMI and waist circumference decreased significantly after four weeks of intermittent fasting.
  • The Impact of Highly-Intensive Interval Physical Fitness Course Using
           Royal Jelly Supplementation on Lipid Profile in Fat and Obese Middle-Aged

    • Abstract: Introduction: Royal jelly contains large amounts of phenolic compounds from the flavonoid family, which can improve the lipid profile with exercise. This study seeks to study the impact of highly intensive interval training (HIIT) using royal jelly consumption on triglyceride (TG), total cholesterol (TC), high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) in overweight and obese middle-aged men. Methods: In this study, 60 middle-aged men were randomly put into 4 groups as foolow: 1) control + Placbo, 2) training, 3) royal jelly supplementation, and 4) training + royal jelly supplementation. Subjects in the experimental groups of training and training + royal jelly supplementation groups performed the training protocol. The HIIT protocol was implemented for 8 weeks with high intensity of 85-95% of the maximum heart rate, and active rest periods included 60-70% of the maximum heart rate. Participants in the royal jelly supplementation groups received 1000 mg capsule once per day. SPSS software version 22, one-way ANOVA and Tukey’s post hoc test were all used to perform intergroup data analysis and dependent sample t-test was used to perform intra-group data analysis. The significance level was considered at P≤0.05. Results: HIIT training, consumption of royal jelly and training + royal jelly supplementation showed a reduction in serum levels of LDL, TC, TG and an increase in HDL in overweight and obese middle-aged men (p ≥ 0.05). Conclusion: HIIT combined with royal jelly supplementation can improve lipid profile in obese or overweight people who are prone to cardiovascular disease and various types of diabetes.
  • Evaluation of the Intention of Nutritional Behavior in Women with
           Prediabetes Based On the Theory of Planned Behavior

    • Abstract: Introduction: Diabetes is one of the most common non-communicable diseases that can be prevented and controlled by following a healthy lifestyle. This study aimed to apply the theory of planned behavior in determining the predictors of nutritional behavior in women with prediabetes referred to the comprehensive health service centers of Mashhad University of Medical Sciences. Methods: This descriptive-analytical study was conducted in 2020. A total of 196 pre-diabetic women referred to Mashhad Comprehensive Health Service Center (Iran) were selected by multi-stage random sampling. To collect the data, a researcher-made questionnaire including demographic information based on the theoretical structures of planned behavior [attitude, mental norms, behavioral control, and intention to follow a healthy diet] was used. Data were analyzed in SPSS-25 software at a significance level of 0.05. Results: The mean of total scores obtained in Attitude constructs 4.1 ± 0.50, mental norms 3.67 ± 1.06, behavioral control 4.13 ± 0.55 and behavioral intention 4.00 ± 0.39 and healthy eating behavior 3.00 ± 0.65 was reported. The construct of the mental norm (β = 0.254) was a strong predictor in the structure of intention and intention (β = 0.419) and perceived behavioral control (β = 0.240) was a strong predictor of nutritional behavior (p <0.001). Planned behavior theory was able to predict 40.5% of eating behavior in women with prediabetes. Conclusion: It seems that by applying the planned theory in the design of educational programs, it is possible to improve the observance of a healthy diet in women with prediabetes.
  • Modelling of Staphylococcus Aureus under the Effect of Carum copticum
           Essential Oil, pH, Temperature, and Inoculum Level

    • Abstract: Staphylococcus aureus is among the major causes of foodborne outbreaks globally. To limit its potential risks and predict its growth behaviors, it is crucial to define the growth boundaries of Staphylococcus aureus. So, this experiment was designed to estimate the growth behavior of Staphylococcus aureus in brain heart infusion (BHI) broth while affected by various concentrations of Carum copticum EO (0, 0.015, 0.030, 0.045%), pH (5, 6, 7), temperature (25, 35 ˚C), and inoculum levels (103, 105 CFU ml-1). The assay was performed with 48 treatment conditions in triplicate. Visible turbidity represents growth onset was checked daily during 30 days of trial. According to the accelerated failure time (AFT) approach, a parametric survival model was chosen to predict the impact of selected variables on Staphylococcus aureus growth. GC-MS assay had quantified sixteen (16) compounds constituting 98.88% of pure oil. Based on our findings, the major components of essential oil were identified as thymol (57.18%), ρ-cymene (22.55%), γ-terpinene (13.07%), and trans-anethole (1.7%). The MIC value of the EO was 0.625 μl ml-1. The median time to detection of bacterial growth was six days. All the predictor variables showed a significant effect on time to initiate the bacterial growth (p < 0.05). The ultimate model could precisely estimate the growth responses of Staphylococcus aureus.
  • The Effect of Ramadan Fasting and Melatonin Supplementation on Sleep
           Quality in Male Athletes

    • Abstract:  Introduction: Food habits and wake-sleep cycle influence circadian rhythms. Ramadan fasting (RF) changes food habits and wake-sleep cycle and causes a metabolic imbalance. Melatonin increases sleep quality and daily awareness. The purpose of this study examined the effect of four weeks Ramadan fasting and melatonin supplementation (MS) on sleep quality, melatonin levels and growth hormone (GH) to cortisol ratio in male athletes. Methods: Thirty active men (20-25 years) were randomly divided into supplement (n=15) and placebo (n=15) groups. Body fat percentage and hormones (melatonin, growth hormone, cortisol and growth hormone-cortisol ratio) were evaluated in three times: before the month, mid fasting and post fasting. Blood samples collected at three times; before sleep, wake up time for Sahur and morning wake up time. To evaluate the intervention effect of supplement and sleep conditions on the dependent variable Repeated Measure (factorial 3*3*2) and Bonferroni post hoc tests were used. Results: Melatonin (P=0.001), GH (P=0.001), GH-cortisol ratio (P=0.001) significantly increased in supplement group compare to placebo group. Also, Cortisol (P=0.003) and body fat percentage (P=0.001) decreased in the supplement group compare to placebo group. Sleep quality significantly improved in the supplement group (P=0.025). Conclusion: Supplementing melatonin with improved anabolic conditions and regulated wake-sleep cycle can help the Ramadan fasting condition and prevent the decreased performance during Ramadan fasting.
  • Does Ramadan Fasting Affect the Blood Coagulation System through A Session
           Soccer Match'

    • Abstract: Introduction: Fasting during Ramadan is associated with modifications in athletes' metabolic, physiological, and psychological responses that may affect physical performance. The current study aimed to assess the changes in some risk factors of thrombosis in trained men following one soccer session in non-fasting and fasting conditions. Method: The 11 amateur soccer players (age: 42 ± 16 years) and (body mass index:26.49 ± 2.86) played soccer matched (~100 min: 10 min warm-up, 90 min soccer match) on two occasions: 1 week before and on the fourth day of Ramadan. The blood samples were taken before and after the soccer game. Fibrinogen and D-dimer were analyzed by the Clauss clotting method and the turbid metric assay, respectively; plasminogen and alpha 2 anti-plasmin were analyzed by spectrophotometry, and Homocysteine was analyzed by the ELISA method. The Shapiro-Wilk, independent t-test, and dependent t-test were used to analyze the findings. (P ≤0.05). Result: The results demonstrated that one session soccer match increased homocysteine in both fasting (p = 0.006) and non-fasting (p = 0.042), Alpha 2-antiplasmin decreased in fasting (p = 0.031 and non-fasting (p = 0.001) and plasminogen decreased in non-fasting (p = 0.012). one session soccer match had not a Significant Impact on Fibrinogen and D-dimer in both condition and plasminogen in fasting(p≥0.05). Also, there was no significant difference between fasting and non-fasting conditions in Homocysteine, Alpha 2-antiplasmin, Fibrinogen, Plasminogen, and D-dimer in response to one session soccer match (p≥0.05).  Conclusions: Amazingly, one session soccer match throughout the fasting condition is parallel with the non-fasting state, and fasting did not produce adverse consequences in the coagulation system.
