The object of the study was to determine the relative effects of hyperphagia and diet composition on energy balance and thermogenic activity in rats fed highly palatable cafeteria diets. Three types of diet were used: a pelleted stock diet, a cafeteria diet composed of a variety of human food items, and semisynthetic diets with nutrient compositions similar to the stock and cafeteria diets. Feeding rats a high-fat semisynthetic diet (similar to the cafeteria diet) at a energy intake equivalent… CONTINUE READING
