Notes: #, number of groups in which data were available; With the exception of age, data limited to those in which change outcome results could be calculated; Mdn, median; BMI, body mass index; WHR, waist to hip ratio; VO2max, maximum oxygen consumption; mg, milligrams; TC, total cholesterol; HDL-C, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; TC:HDL-C, ratio of TC to HDL; LDL-C, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; TG, triglycerides; To convert TC, HDL-C and LDL-C from mg/dl to mmol, divide by 38.46; To convert TG from mg/dl to mmol, divide by 87.72; Insufficient data reported for protein, polyunsaturated fat, saturated fat, and trans-fat intake as well as non-HDL-C.
