  1. Values are mean ± SD.
  2. 1P values are for the differences between the two groups, METABO versus placebo at week 4 and week 8, respectively.
  3. *Significant result via ANCOVA (i.e. week 8 time points are significantly different from each other after using the week 0 time point as the covariate).
  4. FFF, fast food fats; Fats: total fats; Carbs: carbohydrates.
