There were 2 cohorts: 1) controls on standard diet; and 2) mice fed a high fat diet (42% calories from fat).

Summary of procedures that were conducted
• body weight Body weight and growth curve from age 1wk to 22wks (pre-wean, post-wean, adult). High-fat diet (17wks) vs. control.
• fat pad weights High-fat diet (17wks) vs. control.
• glucose tolerance High-fat diet (17wks) vs. control. 0 to 120 min after 10% glucose i.p. 4h fast.
• lipid profile Cholesterol, triglycerides, free fatty acids. High-fat diet (17wks) vs. control. 4h fast, serum.
• organ weights Heart, liver, kidney, spleen weights after high-fat diet (17wks) vs. control.
• hormone quantification Insulin, leptin.
