The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of dietary protein on blood lipids and gut hormones after a fat-rich meal.

Hypothesis: Certain dietary proteins reduce the amount of fat circulating in the blood stream following a fat rich meal. The effect is dependant of both the quality and the quantity of protein ingested.
