A Washington University research study seeks overweight participants.


The purpose of this study is to compare cardiometabolic health between metabolically-normal and metabolically abnormal obese participants.
This study will last up to 1 year. Participants will visit the research center about 8 times before randomization.  The outpatient visits range from less than 1 hour to approximately 6 hours in length. There may be up to two 48-hour inpatient stays. Participants may be randomly assigned to either a Mediterranean, low-carbohydrate, or low-fat plant based diet.
There will be medical screening, blood draws, muscle and fat biopsies, sleep monitoring, ECG, DXA and MRI/MRS scans, and a weight loss intervention.  Compensation is provided for time and effort. Risks and benefits will be discussed as part of the informed consent process (IRB ID #: 201908237).
