  1. Mice were fed a LFC or HFC diet for 12 weeks (baseline) then either maintained on the LFC (LFC control) or switched from HFC to LFP, LFC, HFP, or HFC diets. Weekly measurements of daily food intake were collected each week post-switch for 4 weeks. Results are expressed as means ± s.e.m.; n = 5–13. Points without a common superscript are different (P < 0.05)
