Table 2 Energy intake and body weight gain

From: Long-term high-fat-diet feeding induces skeletal muscle mitochondrial biogenesis in rats in a sex-dependent and muscle-type specific manner

  Control HFD ANOVA
Energy intake (Kcal/Kg day)    
Male 169 ± 7 269 ± 11a S, D
Female 294 ± 18b 332 ± 40  
Body weight gain (%)    
Male 64.1 ± 2.2 107 ± 7a S*D
Female 40.0 ± 2.0b 112 ± 11a  
  1. Body weight gain is calculated relative to body weight at the beginning of the treatment. Values are expressed as the mean ± S.E.M of eight animals per group. ANOVA (p < 0.05): S sex effect, D HFD effect, S*D sex and HFD interactive effect and NS non significant effect. Student's t-test (p < 0.05):a HFD vs control, b female vs male.
