Overfeeding Study

This study explored changes in individual volunteers’ gene expression, hormone concentrations and other factors after consuming 70% more calories than the volunteer's average daily caloric intake for a period of seven days. Fat and muscle samples were taken before and after the week of overfeeding, and were used to measure the changes. This study was funded by Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
