We investigated the utility of carcass water for predicting adiposity in a sample of 373 rats and mice from nine studies involving several models of obesity and experimental manipulations. A single regression equation was derived for estimating percentage carcass fat--%FAT predicted = -1.272 X %WATER + 95.96 (r = -.988). The function is linear across the range of %FAT observed (6.6% to 68.8%) and fits very well the data of each of the nine experiments. Comparisons between this function and the… CONTINUE READING
