  1. The data are expressed as the mean ± SD
  2. No significant differences in any variable were observed between the two groups at baseline, as determined using unpaired Student’s t-test
  3. aThe intervention had no significant effects on daily nutrient intake, as determined by repeated-measures ANOVA
