Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in muscle protein synthesis from baseline to 16 weeks [ Time Frame: Measured at week 0 (baseline) and week 16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The investigators will determine the rate of incorporation of stable isotope amino acid tracers in skeletal muscle protein on average resting muscle protein synthesis rate (% new muscle protein per hour) and will be performed at baseline and 16 weeks after caloric restriction or control diet.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in insulin sensitivity from 0 (baseline) and 16 weeks [ Time Frame: Measured at week 0 (baseline) and week 16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The investigators will determine insulin sensitivity at week 0 (baseline) and 16 weeks into caloric restriction or control diet. The measurement is made by hyperinsulimic euglycemic clamp and reported as μmol per kilogram of fat free mass of infused glucose needed to maintain glycemia.


Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: December 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Calorie restriction
Participants will work with the CRU dietetics staff to plan a diet that will result in their losing 1-2 pounds per week over 16 weeks.
Behavioral: Calorie Restriction
Participants will work with the CRU dietetics staff to plan a diet that will result in their losing 1-2 pounds per week over 16 weeks. They will wear an accelerometer to track there activity during these weeks.
Active Comparator: Control
Participants will continue their normal living for entire time of the study, totaling 16 weeks.
Behavioral: Control (normal living)
Participants will continue their normal living for entire time of the study. They will be asked to wear an accelerometer for the next 16 weeks and check in weekly at the CRU to exchange accelerometers.
