The purpose

Background Life style related disease is an increasing problem all over the world. The Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) is a condition characterized by abdominal obesity, high blood lipids, high blood pressure and slightly elevated blood sugar. Subjects with MetS have high risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Dietary fibers have been shown to have positive effects on the components of MetS. The investigators have special interest in the combination of two types of fiber (Resistant (RS) starch and Arabinoxylans (AX)) . Hypotheses Increase of RS and AX in the dietary composition has a positive effects on components of MetS i.e. decreases blood lipids, improves blood sugar, blood pressure and markers of inflammation. The subjects undergo two dietary interventions of 4 weeks duration each: A "Healthy Carbohydrate Diet" with a high content of RS and AX is compared to a "Western Style Diet" with a low content of RS and AX.
