This experiment was done to analyze the impact of dietary macronutrients on body weight and energy intake. In total we used 18 different diets and tested these on males of one mouse strain (C57BL/6).
This file contains the individual data and data per cage of male C57BL/6 mice exposed to 12 weeks feeding on one of 18 different diets. Body weight (BW) and energy intake (EI) recorded on weekly basis for each mouse (for BW) and per cage (for EI); final body weight gain calculated at the end of the study. Eleven to twelve animals were exposed to each diet. Dietary treatments consisted of three different levels of dietary fat (20, 40 and 55% by energy) combined with three different levels of protein (10, 20 and 30% by energy) with either casein (CAS) or whey protein isolate (WPI). Full details of the dietary compositions can be found in the paper supplementary table 1. Complete meta-data are in the meta-data tab of the file. Means for each diet derived from these individual values are presented in Figure 1B-D.
