Between-treatment phenotypes during and following the feeding intervention. WD and WD + AF similarly increased Caloric intake compared to CTL rats (A). WD rats experienced an increase in body mass pre- to post- intervention (B), although omental fat pad masses, perirenal fat pad masses and liver fat deposition assessed during necropsies were not different between treatments (C/D). Abbreviations and symbols: CTL = control low-fat/low-sugar 14% diet, WD = Western diet, WD + AF = Western diet + anti-inflammatory supplement; different superscript letters represents differences between groups (p < 0.05); In A, different superscript letters represents differences between groups (b > a, p < 0.05); In B, **represents a significant pre- to post-change in body mass within groups (p < 0.01); In C, different superscript letters represents differences between groups (for omental fat mass b > a, p < 0.05; for perirenal fat mass d > c); In D, different superscript letters represents differences between groups (b > a, p < 0.05).
