- Dietary intake [ Time Frame: baseline, 6 weeks, 12 weeks ]Change from baseline in dietary intake at 6 and 12 weeks assessed via a Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ). An 11-item modified US Alternative Healthy Eating Index (m-AHEI), which is calculated from the results of the FFQ, will be used to quantify the dietary intake changes.
- Weight [ Time Frame: baseline, 6 weeks, 12 weeks ]Change from baseline in self-reported weight (kg) at 6 and 12 weeks. Weight variation will be combined with height (constant for adults) and also reported as BMI variation (kg/mˆ2).
