“Characterization of Bile Acid Pathway in Obesity”
It is unknown whether the bile acid pathway is altered in obesity. This study is designed to compare obesity and health to determine if the bile acid pathway differs depending on health state.
The normal diet will consist of the participants' normal eating habits, and will be tracked by a food log. The participants will be on their normal diet during week 1 and week 3.
High Fat Diet
The high fat diet will consist of 2700 kcal, 100g total fat (33%), 300mg cholesterol, 350g carbohydrates (52%), and 100g protein (15%). The participants will be on this diet during week 2.
Low Fat Diet
The low fat diet will consist of 1200 kcal, 26g fat (20%), 78mg cholesterol, 150g carbohydrates (50%), and 100g protein (30%). The participants will be on this diet during week 4.
