From: Sexual dimorphism in the lasting effects of moderate caloric restriction during gestation on energy homeostasis in rats is related with fetal programming of insulin and leptin resistance

Figure 4

Dietary preferences measured by the two-bottle preference test of male and female offspring of controls and caloric restricted dams during gestation (CR) at the age of 3 months. Bars represent the mean ± S.E.M of the amount of carbohydrate (CHO) rich food, fat rich food (Fat) and total (Cho + Fat) food ingested in the choice test of 8 animals per group. The two diets had identical caloric density (2.31 kcal/g). Statistics: #, different from their respective control (Student's t test); *, Fat vs CHO diet (Paired t test).
