Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Young regular diet
During the time of the study this group will adhere to a standardized regular diet.
Behavioral: Adhere to a specific standardized diet for 4 days
24 h before the start of the intervention all subjects will adhere to a standardized diet for 4 days. Young subjects are randomly allocated to either a low protein diet, regular protein diet or high protein diet group. All elderly subjects will adhere to a regular protein diet comparable to the regular protein diet of the young subjects.
Experimental: Young low protein diet
During the time of the study this group will adhere to a standardized low protein diet.
Behavioral: Adhere to a specific standardized diet for 4 days
24 h before the start of the intervention all subjects will adhere to a standardized diet for 4 days. Young subjects are randomly allocated to either a low protein diet, regular protein diet or high protein diet group. All elderly subjects will adhere to a regular protein diet comparable to the regular protein diet of the young subjects.
Experimental: Young high protein
During the time of the study this group will adhere to a standardized high protein diet.
Behavioral: Adhere to a specific standardized diet for 4 days
24 h before the start of the intervention all subjects will adhere to a standardized diet for 4 days. Young subjects are randomly allocated to either a low protein diet, regular protein diet or high protein diet group. All elderly subjects will adhere to a regular protein diet comparable to the regular protein diet of the young subjects.
Experimental: Elderly
During the time of the study this group will adhere to a standardized high protein diet
Behavioral: Adhere to a specific standardized diet for 4 days
24 h before the start of the intervention all subjects will adhere to a standardized diet for 4 days. Young subjects are randomly allocated to either a low protein diet, regular protein diet or high protein diet group. All elderly subjects will adhere to a regular protein diet comparable to the regular protein diet of the young subjects.
