The main objective of this study is to investigate in detail how a high-(prebiotic)fibre diet and a high-PUFA diet affect the gut microbiota composition in a metabolic challenged population, and if the diet-induced modulation of the gut microbiota mediates changes in metabolic risk markers.
Intake of both experimental diets over 4 weeks are expected to induce beneficial changes in the gut microbiota composition and to affect markers for insulin sensitivity, lipid metabolism and inflammation. The investigators hypothesize that the effect of both interventions on the metabolic risk markers will be partly mediated by the diet-induced changes in the gut microbiota composition.

- Change in gut microbiota composition [ Time Frame: Week 0, 4, 8, 12 ]Gut microbiota composition will be analyzed by use of fecal samples.
- Change in markers for insulin sensitivity [ Time Frame: Week 0, 4, 8, 12 ]Will be measured by use of fasting blood samples
- Change in markers for lipid metabolism [ Time Frame: Week 0, 4, 8, 12 ]Will be measured by use of fasting blood samples
- Change in markers for inflammation [ Time Frame: Week 0, 4, 8, 12 ]Will be measured by use of fasting blood samples
- Change in energy expenditure [ Time Frame: Week 0, 4, 8, 12 ]Resting energy expenditure will be measured by indirect calorimetry in a ventilated hood system
