    R M McDevitt
    Medical Research Council Dunn Clinical Nutrition Centre, Cambridge, United Kingdom
    Am J Clin Nutr 72:369-77. 2000
    ..Previous short-term studies (< or =6 h) showed differences in energy expenditure (EE) and macronutrient oxidation in response to overfeeding with different types of dietary carbohydrate. This finding could have implications for obesity...

    R M McDevitt
    Department of Biochemistry and Nutrition, National Centre for Poultry Studies, SAC Auchincruive, Ayr, Scotland
    Br Poult Sci 41:473-80. 2000
    ..6. Our data refute the hypothesis that betaine can substitute for methionine in broilers fed diets that are marginally deficient in methionine plus cystine. However, betaine may improve carcase composition, especially breast meat yield...

    R M McDevitt
    Department of Biochemistry and Nutrition, Scottish Agricultural College, Ayr, United Kingdom
    Am J Clin Nutr 74:737-46. 2001
    ..The results of previous studies suggest that de novo lipogenesis may play an important role in the etiology of obesity, particularly during overconsumption of different carbohydrates...

    S D Poppitt
    MRC Dunn Clinical Nutrition Centre, Addenbrooke s Hospital, Cambridge, United Kingdom
    Am J Clin Nutr 68:1012-21. 1998
    ..Studies in lean men show poor regulation of energy (EB) and fat balance (FB) during manipulation of dietary ratios of fat to carbohydrate. High-fat (HF), high-energy diets cause hyperphagia and a positive EB and FB...
