<p>(A) A representative image of male mice after high-fat (60% of calories) feeding. Mice (n = 6) were fed with a high-fat diet for 12–30 weeks and their body weights were monitored every week (B). Means and SEM are shown. All data points indicate <i>p</i><0.001. (C) Representative photos of tissues (scale, 1 mm). (D) Tissue weights are shown. *, **, and *** indicate <i>p</i><0.05, <0.01, and <0.001, respectively. (E) Levels of blood glucose, insulin, and leptin measured after 4-h fasting. (F) Glucose tolerance test (1.5 g/kg) performed after 4-h fasting. (G) Cholesterol and triglyceride content in feces (n = 3 cages). (H) Oxygen consumption (VO<sub>2</sub>, voluntarily O<sub>2</sub> consumption) of each group (n = 6) was monitored. Respiration quotient (RQ) during the day and night. (I) Cholesterol (Chol) and triglycerides (TG) in the liver and serum were measured (n = 6). (J) Serum Chol and TG were separated using FPLC.</p
