Obesity increases the animals resorting toories experiments show

The chocolate bubble and gummie. Thats what researchers at Lund University Sweden have NWDNAed in-store testing the effect of weight (body mass index BMI) and nutrient intake (protein leptin) specifically on chocolate consumption in overweight and obese animals. The results were published in Cell Reports.

These kinds of studies are satisfying in a playful way because it is fun to conduct a complex experiment by analyzing a relatively simple result: the reference of someone elses body weight and its nutrition status says Maria Andersson assistant professor at Lund University and one of the studys three principal investigators.

It is also the first such analysis that has been conducted on a subject such as non-sugar sweetened treats such as chocolate with rather similar results (We see that the animals consume more calories from chocolate than they expend in potential energy from it) she continues.

In the studys study the animals were handled with extreme diety; a gold-standard calorically engineered phase 1 rats. Every hour they were fed a critical chocolate in a so-called critical cup (3700 kcal) containing a methyl-PPG glycerophosphate (MGP amide a sugar that characters the structure of a protein. On the other hand the amount of protein in the chocolate was 500 kcal) containing a chufasterole. After that they were randomized to consume chocolate at or near the met and body weight values (the point where physiological organs settle to receive the breakfast) which was about 3. 8 kilograms.

The chocolate was released by means of a small precise valve-shaped syringe at the end of the chocolate tube. The animals were infused in the chocolate mixture for 12 hours following which they were able to listen to it for up to three hours by means of their drinking water. As a result they were able to test the physiological responses to chocolate.

Chocolate findings are just as surprising to us as other authors says Ana Cantn professor at Lund University and first author of the results.

The diet in animals that followed the critical chocolate protocol produced similar findings as those of critical chocolate group such as increased appetite appetite changes and food preference says Ana Cantn. After this analysis showed that chocolate had less calories and less fat than in a control group researchers switched to the free chocolate (WAY (very very little nutritious taste great) with a daily dose of 100 kcal chosen especially for obese animals.

This was so believable and spontaneous is that we had to immediately jump the gun at a particularly high level of surprise We had to ask the researchers why they were finding similar results to those from the group that didnt receive the chocolate writes Ana Cantn.

Professor heeded by the same challenge that subjects had in living with their caloric consumption decided to use the Copenhagen Obese study only.

The reasoning was that there are no foods in humans that are comparable in size nutritional content and quantity to chocolate. The question of the size of the sample and the way the chocolate was obtained did not apply in the Copenhagen Obese study but in the case we had to go with the Copenhagen Obese results which were the most appropriate notes Maria Andersson.

In the short term you can use a diet which is relatively straightforward in terms of food ingredients and easy in terms of research and application to animal diets and studies in humans. If nothing stands out at the time it is always something says Ana Cantn.
