  1. •Weight gain was calculated as follows: final weight − initial weight
  2. Adipose tissue values were calculated as follows: (retroperitoneal + subcutaneous tissue)/initial weight. *P < 0.05 vs N. &P < 0.05 vs NM. #P < 0.05 vs H. $P < 0.05 vs NE. P < 0.05 vs NEM. N = 9, NM = 8, H = 8, HM = 9, NE = 8, NEM = 8, HE = 8, HEM = 8
