Men and women aged 18 years and older who are overweight with a BMI between 27-34 kg/m2, non-smoking, have regular bowel movements (≥3 times a week) and do not follow a vegetarian/vegan diet are needed for a study being held at Tufts University in downtown Boston. The study will involve about 8 visits to the center over the course of approximately 6 weeks.
We want to look at the interaction between food and genetic makeup on changes in biomarkers that are relevant to gut health, inflammation, fat metabolism and the development of chronic diseases such as obesity and heart disease. For the study, you'll be asked to consume a diet composed of mostly meats, eggs and dairy products for the meat-based diet, and a diet containing only fruits, vegetables for the plant-based diet phase for about 7 days for each diet phase. You'll also be asked to provide blood and stool samples 6 times during the study. You will receive $540 for completing the entire study. Please call show contact info or email show contact info and request study #2945!
