|Metabolic Regulation Fasting Ketogenic Diet||Behavioral: Dietary manipulation ketogenic diet Behavioral: Dietary Manipulation - 12 day ketogenic diet Behavioral: 16 Hour Fast||Not Applicable|
There is scant data regarding the metabolic events that occur in humans during ketosis which may be brought about by fasting or ingestion of diets low in carbohydrate.
We aim to employ both fasting and dietary manipulation in order to bring about a ketotic state in healthy human adults. During the study blood levels of key metabolic regulators will be monitored 1) during a 16 hour fast followed by re-feeding and 2) during dietary induction of ketosis followed by re-feeding with a standard meal.

|Experimental: 3 day ketogenic diet||
Behavioral: Dietary manipulation ketogenic diet
Subjects will consume a ketogenic diet for 3 days.
|Experimental: 12 day ketogenic diet||
Behavioral: Dietary Manipulation - 12 day ketogenic diet
Subjects will consume a ketogenic diet for 12 days.

Behavioral: 16 Hour Fast
Subjects will fast for 16 hours.
- Changes in circulating plasma levels of key metabolic regulators [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
- A secondary outcome is change in energy expenditure with diet-induced ketosis. [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
