  1. 1Effects of diet (high-carbohydrate: HC; high-fat: HF; and high-protein: HP), adipose tissue depot (subcutaneous, clavicular and abdominal), and the interaction between diet (D) and depot (D) on adipose tissue weights and weights as a percentage of body weight. Values represent least squares means and pooled standard errors of the means with associated P-values for each effect (n = 10). Unique superscipts within an effect are significantly different at P < 0.05, Tukey’s test
