Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Post menopausal women willing to eat controlled diet at United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center for 14 weeks

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
Subjects were assigned to either the High or Low Calcium diets. The subjects then consumed the high and low protein diets in random order, i.e. half of the subjects consumed high protein, then low protein while the other half consumed low protein, then the high protein diet. Drop-outs were replaced.

Reporting Groups
  Description
High Calcium Diet Women consumed diets containing 1500 milligrams of calcium daily
Low Calcium Diet Women consumed diets containing 600 milligrams of calcium daily
