The effect of moderate food restriction on pregnancy-associated changes in weight gain, body composition, and circulating insulin-like growth factors (IGF) I and II and IGF-binding proteins (IGFBP)-1 through -4 and their relationship was determined in the guinea pig. Pregnancy did not stimulate weight gain but reduced fat deposition in ad libitum-fed animals and increased weight gain and fat deposition in food-restricted animals relative to their respective virginal group. Pregnancy increased… CONTINUE READING
