Table 1 Body mass and composition

From: Greater insulin sensitivity in calorie restricted rats occurs with unaltered circulating levels of several important myokines and cytokines

  AL CR

Fat Mass (g) 65.2 ± 4.4 19.0 ± 1.9*
Lean Mass (g) 293.0 ± 10.3 205.5 ± 4.6*
Free Fluid (g) 31.9 ± 1.2 20.9 ± 0.5*
Fat Mass (%) 15.4 ± 0.5 7.1 ± 0.6*

  1. *Indicates a statistically significant difference (P ≤ 0.05) between the AL and CR groups as determined by unpaired Student’s t-test. Values are mean ± SEM for n=8-12 per treatment group. Body composition (fat, lean and free fluid masses) determined by nuclear magnetic resonance are expressed as both absolute (g, grams) and relative (%) values.
