The purpose of this study is to see if a high-protein meal leads to a better postprandial (after a meal) blood lipid profile compared to a high-monounsaturated meal.

Study summary:

The effect of a high-protein diet compared to a high-monounsaturated fat diet on fasting lipids is controversial (1,2), In addition, these studies did not examine the effect of a high-protein compared to a high-monounsaturated meal on postprandial lipid concentrations. Postprandial lipid responses are important to examine since they are associated with heart disease (3,4). In addition, most individuals in Western countries are in a postprandial state for majority of the day. The present study will compare the effect of a high-protein meal versus a high-monounsaturated fat meal on postprandial lipid responses.


Inclusion Criteria: - Men and women ages 18-65 years. Exclusion Criteria: - Use of medications or supplements that affect lipid levels, body weight, or blood glucose, - following a weight loss diet, - being a vegan, - smoking, - heavy alcohol use, - pregnancy, - lactation, - severe depression, - eating disorders, - presence of liver, kidney, gastrointestinal, adrenal, or untreated thyroid disease, - diabetes, - lactose intolerance, - documented mal-absorption, or - bowel surgery that affects absorption.
