We examined the long-term effect of hydroxycitrate (HCA) on food intake, meal patterns, body weight regain and energy conversion ratio as well as on different blood and liver variables in rats after substantial body weight loss. Rats were fed a 1% (g/100 g) fat diet (81% carbohydrate, 10% protein, 1% fat) or a 12% (g/100 g) fat diet (76% carbohydrate, 9% protein, 12% fat) in two separate experiments. Supplementing both diets with 3% HCA after 10 d of restrictive feeding reduced body weight… CONTINUE READING
