Call for participants
This is a dietary intervention study examining the effect of short-term overfeeding with carbohydrate or fat on risk markers for metabolic disease. This research will help to increase understanding of impairments in insulin sensitivity and glycaemic control in healthy adults in response to overfeeding of different macronutrients during the early stages of weight gain; it will provide insights into the progression of metabolic diseases, including type 2 diabetes.
As outlined in the attached poster, we are looking to recruit apparently healthy men and women (18-40 years) for the 2-week dietary intervention. If deemed eligible, participants would be required to 2-week dietary intervention with 3 metabolic testing sessions.
