  1. TBW: total body weight; BMI: body mass index; LWW: liver wet weight; HI: Hepatic index; VF: visceral fat; VF (%): percentage of visceral fat. Error bars represent standard deviations. *p < 0.05, p < 0.01 and p < 0.001 vs. the CS group. ap < 0.05, bp < 0.01 and cp < 0.001 vs. the CH group. (CS group, n = 6; GS group, n = 6; CH group, n = 10; GH group, n = 10).
