Experimental: Psychosocial stress
Participants will complete the Trier Social Stress Test (TSST) immediately following consumption of their assigned meal type (low or high GI).
Behavioral: Psychosocial stress
The TSST is a 15 minute standardized lab-based challenge task that involves speech preparation, speech delivery while being evaluated by strangers and video taped, and complex mental arithmetic with critiques if errors are made.
Active Comparator: Control non-stress
Participants will complete a non-stress relaxed task immediately following consumption of their assigned meal type (low or high GI).
Behavioral: Control non-stress
Participants will have a relaxed 15 minute conversation with a familiar research team member.
- Postprandial glycemic response [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]Intra-individual glycemic response (area-under-the-curve of glucose) to the standardized meal following exposure to either the psychosocial stress (TSST) or non-stress (control) task
- Postprandial lipid response [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]Intra-individual lipid response (area-under-the-curve of triglycerides and free fatty acids) to the standardized meal following exposure to either the psychosocial stress (TSST) or non-stress (control) task
- Postprandial inflammatory response [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]Intra-individual lipid response (area-under-the-curve of inflammatory cytokines) to the standardized meal following exposure to either the psychosocial stress (TSST) or non-stress (control) task
- Postprandial metabolic response to stress by meal type [ Time Frame: 3 hours ]Inter-individual difference in the glycemic/lipid/inflammatory AUC in response to the TSST between participants consuming the low GI compared to the high GI meal type
