Table 4 Impact on locomotion of switching from HFC to LFC, LFP, HFP and HFC

From: Switching from a high-fat cellulose diet to a high-fat pectin diet reverses certain obesity-related morbidities

  1. Mice were fed HFC as the starting diet for 12 weeks then switched to LFP, LFC, HFP, or HFC. Mice fed LFC as the starting diet were maintained on LFC as control. Results are expressed as mean ± s.e.m.; n = 10–11. Points without a common superscript are different within each week post-switch (p < 0.05). # indicates significance versus LFC control within each week post switch (p < 0.05)
