LWDH: Liuwei Dihuang; OR: obesity-resistant normal control group; OP: obesity-prone positive control group; T1A: 500 mg/kg/d LWDH group; T1B: 1500 mg/kg/d LWDH group; T1C: 3500 mg/kg/d LWDH group.
*Mean values within a row were significantly different from OP (pair-wise comparisons using the least squares means test; ).
The change in weekly food intake in obese rats treated with total daily dosages of 500, 1500, or 3500 mg/kg BW LWDH is given.
