Semistarvation over a ten-day period resulted in a weight loss of 30% in male Wistar rats, which had continuous access to a running wheel. The animals increased their activity up to 20 km per day. Controls fed ad lib increased activity only slightly (up to 2.3 km on day ten). Groups of semistarved and ad lib-fed sedentary rats were studied as controls. The circadian pattern of corticosterone (B), triiodothyronine (T3), luteinizing hormone (LH) and testosterone (T) was studied. Corticosterone… CONTINUE READING
