  1. aAll values are means ± SEMs. Significant differences between groups are based on linear mixed models with baseline values as covariates and adjustments for age, sex, BMI, and change in body fat. Pairwise comparisons were made by using a post hoc t test on the linear mixed model with P values adjusted for multiplicity.
