Energy balance studies suggest that the overall efficiency of energy utilization does not increase during pregnancy in rodents, other than as a consequence of "hyperphagia". Diet-induced thermogenesis is not stimulated in response to the increased energy intake of the pregnant animal, the extra intake being retained at the maximum efficiency. Biochemical… (More)
