The primary purpose of this research study is to understand the effects of increasing protein (EAA) in the diet, with or without high intensity exercise (HIIT) for 8 weeks in overweight/obese individuals on body composition, muscle characteristics, and aspects of metabolism (i.e. how much and type of fuel you burn). A second purpose is to explore how these effects might differ between men and women.
Thank you for your interest, but this study is not currently enrolling.
