This experiment was done to analyze the impact of dietary macronutrients on tissue weights and plasma hormone and metabolite levels. In total we used 18 different diets and tested these on one mouse strain (C57BL/6). This file contains the individual data of tissue weights and plasma hormones and metabolites in male C57BL/6 mice exposed to one of 6 different diets. The tissue weights are from dissection at the end of the experiment. Dietary treatments consisted of three different levels of dietary fat (20, 40 and 55% by energy) combined with one level of protein (30% by energy) with either casein (CAS) or whey protein isolate (WPI). Full details of the dietary compositions can be found in the 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 3A-D (tissue weights) and Figure 3E-J (hormones, metabolites).
