  Purpose
This trial is conducted in Europe. The aim of this clinical trial is to investigate the effect of liraglutide on gastric emptying, energy expenditure and appetite, and to evaluate liraglutide pharmacokinetics in non-diabetic obese volunteers. The trial is designed as a two-period, six-sequenced, crossover trial where the trial participant will enter two treatment periods with a wash-out period of 6-8 weeks.
