Table 4: Multiple regression model assessing the association between plasma TAC and body weight changes after 3 years of nutritional intervention with a Mediterranean diet rich in VOO (n=65)

From: A 3 years follow-up of a Mediterranean diet rich in virgin olive oil is associated with high plasma antioxidant capacity and reduced body weight gain
