Neuropeptide Y (NPY) induces a robust feeding response when it is injected in the hypothalamus. It stimulates both carbohydrate and fat intakes. Diets rich in either macronutrient are known to induce obesity and to modify feeding behavior. The aim of the present study was to determine the effects of long-term ingestion of these diets on hypothalamic NPY in relation with food intake and body weight gain and composition. For this purpose, three groups of weanling Long-Evans rats were fed either a… CONTINUE READING
