This study used 1H MRS to investigate the effects of a two week hyper-energetic 25% excess overfeeding diet of either high carbohydrate or high fat content on liver fat in 20 healthy overweight volunteers. Significant increases were found in whole group and in the high carbohydrate group, with smaller non-significant increases observed in the high fat group. Other blood measures and body fat were investigated also.
