  1. Data are presented as means ± SD (n = 29). Data were analyzed using a Student's t test. P values refer to the difference between baseline and week 12. Subjects consumed a CRD supplemented by standard multivitamin consumed every-other day for 12 weeks. MUFA = monounsaturated fatty acids; PUFA = polyunsaturated fatty acids. Analysis was performed on 5-day weighed food records for baseline and 7 day weighed food records for week 12.
