The effects of different weight loss treatments on subsequent weight regain, food efficiency, body composition, metabolic rate, and corticosterone concentrations were investigated in obese male B6D2F1 mice. Treatment groups were: restricted (RES, food restricted); exercised (EX, treadmill exercised); sham control (SHAM, treadmill exposure, not exercised); lab chow control (LC). Weight loss, regardless of treatment, resulted in increased rate of weight regain and food efficiency. There were… CONTINUE READING
