Table 3 Effect of chronic (6 weeks) physical training and/or leucine supplementation on fat pad weight

From: Leucine supplementation improves adiponectin and total cholesterol concentrations despite the lack of changes in adiposity or glucose homeostasis in rats previously exposed to a high-fat diet
