1. Results from Unrestricted Intake Experiments • N= 20 Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats • Food deprivation 24 hours prior to each of the 4 trials conducted at one week intervals during the 1st hour of Lights On. • Provided Froot Loops one at a time until rat terminates meal (defined as not consuming for 10 minutes) • Measurements • Time to consume each Froot Loop (sec) (data not shown) • Meal duration in seconds • Number of Froot Loops consumed • Grams of Froot Loops consumed • Rate of Froot Loop consumption (sec/FL)
