Figure 2

Correlations between food intake and body weight and composition. Relationships with cumulative food intake for (a) body weight gain, (b) total fat mass gain and (c) total lean mass gain for rats given diets containing different dietary fibres for 4 weeks. Diets contained 5% w/w cellulose (CONT, open circles) or 10% w/w fibre as cellulose (CELL, very light grey squares), oat beta-glucan (GLUC, light grey circles), fructo-oligosaccharide (FOS, dark grey triangles) or apple pectin (PECT, solid squares). **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001; r, Pearson product–moment correlation coefficient.
