Repeated pregnancy without lactation: effects on maternal glycemic control, pregnancy outcome, carcass composition, and fat distribution in rats.
TLDR
The pregnancy outcome, intravenous glucose tolerance ability (IVGTT), and carcass composition were further examined in Osborne-Mendel rats and it was found that rats in PNL group had fasting hyperglycemia and insulin insensitivity during the third pregnancy, elevated spontaneous abortion rate, and elevated subcutaneous fat content.

Estimation of body composition changes during weight cycling by bioelectrical impedance analysis in rats.
TLDR
High-fat ad libitum feeding induced rapid body weight and fat gains as well as an elevated feeding efficiency and an internal fat-to-subcutaneous fat ratio, regardless of whether the rats cycled. Expand
Lipid lowering effect of omega-3 fatty acids in genetically obese zucker rats
TLDR
The effects of n-3 FA feeding on lipid metabolism and glycemic control in a strain of genetically obese, hyperlipidemic rats showed different effects on blood lipid and glucose levels in lean and obese subjects. Expand
Repeated pregnancy without lactation: effects on carcass composition and adipose tissue cellularity in rats.
TLDR
Repeated pregnancy followed by no lactation resulted in greater carcass fat content and fat cell number in the subcutaneous pad than observed in lactating rats, although these increases failed to reach significance when compared with virgin controls. Expand
Long-term exercise training and retirement in genetically obese rats: effects on food intake, feeding efficiency and carcass composition.
TLDR
Exercise, even long-term to cover the entire fat cell proliferation period, still only exerted temporary beneficial effects in OB rats, and after retirement, the beneficial effects all disappeared rapidly. Expand
Effects of infantile overnutrition and adulthood high fat feeding on adult body weight regulation in rats
TLDR
In adulthood, rats fed a high fat (HF) diet gained more weight and had more body fat than their chow (CH) fed counterparts, and obesity produced by HF feeding did not impair glucose tolerance. Expand
Metabolic consequences of weight cycling induced by high fat and protein feedings in female Sprague-Dawley rats
TLDR
It was observed that WC did not reduce final body weight or total fat content, but it reduced fat free mass compared to noncycled rats, and it was concluded that WC exerted more influence on body composition than on metabolic parameters in Sprague-Dawley rats. Expand
