Notes: the uterine and fat depots weights were expressed in g/100 g BW ( = 4–6). Thebody weight gain was expressed in g ( = 6–9). Food consumption was expressed in g/day ( = 6–9). The adiposity index was calculated from the sum of the retroperitoneal, uterine, mesenteric, and inguinal fat weights, which was related to g/100 g BW (). The results were expressed as the means ± SEM. The letters indicate the statistical significance as revealed by ANOVA (a control versus OVX, OVX + CE, and OVX + ButF; b control versus OVX, OVX + CE, and OVX + ButF; c OVX versus control, OVX + CE, and OVX + ButF; d OVX versus control, OVX + CE, and OVX + ButF; e OVX versus control, OVX + CE, and OVX + ButF; f OVX + ButF versus control; g OVX versus control and OVX + CE).
