You will be asked to have the following “screening” exams, tests or procedures to find out if you can be in the study.
When the study starts, you will take part in the following dietary protocol, tests and procedures:
Standardized diet: You will eat only the study food provided during the entire 7-weeks of the study. You will not be allowed to eat non-study foods. You will receive a standardized diet consisting of a breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack that you will need to adhere to this diet plan. The amount of food provided is based on your calculated energy requirement. This is a standard calculation used for all subjects, so it is important to report to the study staff if you feel that you are being provided with too much or too little food. There will be specific meals provided to you the day before or day of a scheduled procedure that must be eaten in full. This is necessary in order for this study to produce scientifically accurate information. If giving up all of your favorite foods and drinks for 7 weeks is something that you are not willing to do, this study is not suitable for you.
Sugar-sweetened or naturally-sweetened beverages:You will be restricted to drinking only water, black coffee (if applicable) and the study beverages provided during the entire 7-weeks of the study. You will be restricted from drinking outside beverages, including alcohol (except water and black coffee).
