Table 1 Food intake, respiratory quotient and energy expenditure in both experimental groups (C and HFS)

From: Obesity induced by a pair-fed high fat sucrose diet: methylation and expression pattern of genes related to energy homeostasis

  Control HFS T test
Weight gain 158.50 ± 7.22 209.25 ± 12.05 **
Food intake at the end of the treatment (Kcal/d 75.1 ± 1.8 72.5 ± 2.9 NS
Respiratory quotient 0.73 ± 0.0 0.72 ± 0.0 NS
Energy expenditure (Kcal/d/bw ¾) 116.6 ± 2.8 125.7 ± 3.7 NS
  1. NS: not statistically significant; d: day; bw: body weight. Data are given as mean ± SEM. Control vs. HFS: * p < 0.05.
