Controlled Lacto-ovo vegetarian diet

Subjects will be randomized and assigned into an intervention to consume the controlled lacto-ovo vegetarian (LOV) diet for 3 weeks. All foods will be provided to subjects during the intervention. Each subject's energy requirement will be estimated using sex-specific equations published by the Institute of Medicine for weight maintenance during the intervention.

Controlled Unprocessed red meat diet

The unprocessed red meat diet will be the same as the LOV diet except that one 3-ounce portion of unprocessed red meat per day, 7 days per week (21 oz/wk) will be included. The unprocessed red meat will include beef tenderloin and pork loin. All foods will be provided to subjects during the intervention.

Controlled processed red meat diet

The processed red meat diet will be the same as the LOV diet except that one 3-ounce portion of processed red meat per day, 7 days per week (21 oz/wk) will be included. The processed red meat will include a variety of beef and pork luncheon meats with different methods of preservation. All foods will be provided to subjects during the intervention.
