  1. #Logarithmic transformation for normality and comparison.
  2. Body weight, epididymal fat mass, and the masses of gastrocnemius, quadriceps femoris, EDL and soleus muscles were measured at the end of the 19-week experiment. The muscle masses are average of both limbs. * = vs. LFsed (P < 0.05), ** = vs. LFsed (P < 0.01), *** = vs. LFsed (P < 0.001), §§§ = vs. HFsed (P<0.001), ¤¤¤ = vs. LFexe (P < 0.001). Results are means (±SD).
