  Purpose
Inclusion of foods rich in fiber, such as flaxseed, is a nutritional strategy for treating obesity. The hypothesis of this study is to compare the effects of three types of flaxseed flour - whole brown flaxseed flour, brown defatted flaxseed flour and golden flaxseed flour in the sensations of appetite and satiety, lipid profile, pressure levels and associated costs in overweight and obese women.

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Effects of Flaxseed Flour - Whole Brown Flaxseed Flour, Brown Defatted Flaxseed Flour and Golden Flaxseed Flour in Appetite Sensations Satiety, Lipid Profile, Pressure Levels and Associated Costs Among Overweighed and Obese Women
