Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Control With Dietitian Meetings
Arm includes dietary manipulation in the free-living setting to include potatoes/potato products frequently in the diet (5-7 days / week). Control diet will be prescribed for weight maintenance.
Behavioral: Control
Dietary manipulation in the free-living setting to include potatoes/potato products frequently in the diet (5-7 days / week). The control diet will be prescribed for weight maintenance.
Other Name: No energy reduction
Experimental: Low-Glycemic Index
Diets will be energy-restricted (~ 500 kcal deficit /d) for weight loss, will include consumption of 5-7 potatoes/week, and will focus on Low Glycemic Index foods.
Behavioral: Low -GI
Diets will be energy-restricted (~ 500 kcal deficit /d) for weight loss, will include consumption of 5-7 potatoes/week, and will focus on Low Glycemic Index foods.
Other Name: Low glycemic index reduced energy
Experimental: High Glycemic Index
Diets will be energy-restricted (~ 500 kcal deficit /d) for weight loss, will include consumption of 5-7 potatoes/week, and will focus on High Glycemic Index foods.
Behavioral: High - GI
Diets will be energy-restricted (~ 500 kcal deficit /d) for weight loss, will include consumption of 5-7 potatoes/week, and will focus on Low Glycemic Index foods.
Other Name: High glycemic index reduced energy

Detailed Description:

The study will examine the effect of including potatoes as part of a calorie restricted diet designed to induce weight loss and improve glycemic control in overweight subjects.

This is a randomized, treatment-controlled, 3-arm, parallel study. The 3 arms of the study will include dietary manipulation in the free-living setting to include potatoes/potato products frequently in the diet (5-7 days / week). Two diets will be energy-restricted (~ 500 kcal deficit /d) for weight loss and the control diet will be prescribed for weight maintenance. The two energy-restricted diets will include further manipulation, such that, one dietary plan will be a high glycemic index (GI) diet and the other a low glycemic index diet.
