Food consumption and BMI in mice fed high or low fat diet containing varying levels of vitamin D 3 . Twenty-four week old male mice were randomly sorted into low, standard (STD) or high vitamin D3 supplementation groups and followed for 24 weeks. Body mass index a for each mouse was determined weekly using mouse length measurements from week 24 b. Mouse length endpoint measurements reflect the distance from nose to the base of the tail. Food consumption was measured weekly and group means were averaged c. Different letters denote significant differences (****p < 0.0001)
