Are you a healthy normal weight or slightly overweight male (BMI* between 18.5 and 27 kg/m2)? Do you have a sedentary job and lifestyle and do not exercise regularly? Are you aged between 18 and 50 years? Then this may be a relevant study for you. This is a unique opportunity to carry out tests which are normally only used for research purposes.
By participating in this study you will help us on our way to understand the difference between active and inactive people and how they respond to a meal, and if there is a difference in appetite regulation between the two groups. We are interested in examining the daily variation in insulin response and appetite regulation after the same test meal and how mood and physical activity level can affect it.
You have to be available on three occasions. There will be weighing, measuring, exercise testing (VO2max) and measures of body composition (BODPOD). Two occasions will consist of milkshake and blood samples (approximately 3 hours both times). It will be possible to bring your laptop, books, etc.
If you want more information about this study, please contact master student Linn Bøhler (in English or Norwegian, firstname.lastname@example.org).
The study will run at the Faculty of Medicine, NTNU and is without commercial interests.
*BMI is calculated as: weight (kg) / (height (m) x height (m)).
