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 and body composition of 4 mice strains (BALB/c, C3H, DBA2, FVB) exposed to 10 weeks feeding on one of 6 different diets. Ten mice were exposed to each diet. The diets had variable protein from 5 to 30% and fat content fixed at 60%. 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. Equivalent data for C57BL/6 mice can be found in Figure 2. Means for each diet derived from these individual values are presented in Figure 3 of Hu et al (2018) Cell metabolism.
