This experiment was to assess the impact of dietary macro-nutrient composition on body weight of the mouse. In total we used 30 different diets and 5 different strains of mice. This file contains the individual data of the body adiposity and individual fat depots of male C57BL/6 mice. The adiposity is derived from an echoMRI measurement during the last 10 days of feeding on one of 12 different diets for 84 days. Depot sizes are from dissection at the end of the experiment. Twenty mice were exposed to each diet. The diets had variable protein from 5 to 30% and had two levels of fat content (diets 1 to 6 had 60% fat and diets 7 to 12 had 20% fat), variable fat from 8.3 to 80% and had two levels of protein content (diets 13 to 18 had 10% protein and diets 19 to 24 had 25% protein). Full details of the dietary compositions can be found in the paper 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 S2 of Hu et al (2018) Cell metabolism.
