Abstract : Two major series of investigations will be undertaken to explore the metabolic responses of women, who meet military standards of body-weight and percent body-fat to the nutritional stressors of food restriction. A comparison of their responses will be made with those occurring in men, who also meet the standards established by the military. The first series (Series I) will be devoted to the temporal (Progressive) changes in lipid, carbohydrate and protein metabolism that occur during a short-term (3 day) fasting period. A proposed sixteen women and eight men will participate in this study. p5
