The study consists of two two-week periods separated by at least two weeks. We will provide all of the meals for the participants. The participants will come in to the lab ~2 times per week to pick up the food and milk beverages. On day 0, day 7 and day 14 we collect blood, breath sample, urine, and stool samples from the participants.
