We postulated that dose-responsive satiety after oil premeals varies with the number of gut sensors stimulated by lipolytic products along intestine. These experiments in fasted rats on satiety after oil premeals were performed to 1) determine whether satiety was induced by lipolytic products but not triglycerides; 2) confirm that oil empties from the stomach at rates that vary with oil loads; 3) ascertain that increasing rates of oil entry into duodenum extend the length of gut contacted by… CONTINUE READING
