  1. Values are means ± standard deviations. DEXA body composition and BIA determined body water were determined on 36 participants (12 per group). Body composition variables were analyzed by MANOVA with repeated measures. Greenhouse-Geisser time and group x time (G x T) interaction p-levels are reported with univariate group p-levels.
