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 food intake, energy intake and protein/fat intake, body weight and body composition of a subset of male C57BL/6 mice used for hypothalamus RNAseq, averaged over the last 10 days on one of 24 different diets. Twelve of twenty mice were chosen from 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 Supplemental Figure 6 of Hu et al (2018) Cell metabolism.
