  Purpose

This study will examine the effects of a dietary fiber on insulin sensitivity in overweight and obese women. The fiber will be added to snack foods and women will consume the foods for four weeks. In one four-week period, 15 g of fiber will be added, and 30 g will added in another period. In a third period, no fiber will be added to the snack foods. Insulin senstivity will be measured at the end of each treatment period.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Insulin sensitivity [ Time Frame: 5-hr test, performed 3 times within a 20-week period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A frequently sampled intravenous blood glucose tolerance test will be performed.


Secondary Outcome Measures:

    A muscle biospy will be taken to assess mitochondrial function

  • Meal tolerance test [ Time Frame: 3 times, within a 20-week period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A high-fat meal will be given and blood will be drawn over a three-hr period
