Figure 4

Panel 'A', 'B' and 'C' are AUC glucose, insulin and leptin composite scores for HGI and LGI range scaled data of Response Groups 1, 2 and 3. AUC was done using the trapezoid rule for 0-2.5 h, 2.5-4.5 h and 4.5-8 h, and is represented by three bars in sequence for each group. Error bars are ± SEM. A log transformed AUC was used in a 3 × 3 ANOVA with Tukey's post hoc test for RG group (RG1, RG2 or RG3), diet (HGI or LGI) and time (early, mid or late), which revealed a significant main effect of group in leptin, glucose and insulin (p < 0.01). In both glucose and leptin, however, there was a significant interaction between response group and time (p < 0.05), while insulin had no significant 2-way or 3-way interaction. '*', '**', '***' and '†', '††', '†††' indicate significant differences (p ≤ 0.05).
