Figure 1: Effect of YBF on mice body weight and adipose tissue mass. (A) Body weight as measured every two weeks; (B) percentage of body weight gain after ten weeks of treatment; (C) the eWAT mass; and (D) the iBAT mass presented against total body weight. Data are presented as mean ± SEM. The different lowercase letters above the bars indicate statistical differences (P < 0.05); **P < 0.01 indicates a significant difference between initial body weight (before treatments) and respective body weight in the same group based on paired samples t-test. YBF, Yam bean fiber; ND, normal diet; HFD, high-fat diet; eWAT, epididymal white adipose tissue; iBAT, interscapular brown adipose tissue.
