Effects of a high fat diet compared with a high carbohydrate diet on sympathetic activity and body fat accumulation were studied in rats. Rats were fed an isoenergetic diet based on fat or carbohydrate for 8 weeks. Body weight gain, abdominal adipose tissue weight and carcass fat content were greater (P<0.05) in the high-fat diet group than in the high-carbohydrate diet group.
