BACKGROUND Vagal stimulation combined with an oral fat load enhances postprandial lipemia in animals and humans. OBJECTIVE We assessed whether the observed postprandial increase in plasma lipids could be explained by changes in exogenous (chylomicron) or endogenous (VLDL) lipid metabolism and whether the timing of vagal stimulation in relation to fat intake was important. DESIGN Vagal stimulation was achieved by using the modified sham feeding (MSF) technique, in which food is tasted and… CONTINUE READING
