Abstract

Aims: It seems that there is a causal link between dietary fat and body weight. Overweight obesity is the biggest nutrition-related problem in developed countries and the rapid summation of obesity is taking place in their populations. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of different diets on the obesity of Syrian hamsters.

Materials & Methods: This experimental study conducted on 48 N-Mary male Syrian hamsters with an average weight of 25-30g. Mice were randomly divided into 6 groups (each 8); control, corn oil, olive oil, cow ghee, sheep ghee and, cholesterol. All the samples were weighted before and after the 2 months period of treatment. Data was analyzed by SPSS 16 software using paired T and Kruskal-Wallis tests.

Findings: The mean weights of all groups were significantly increased after the treatment in compared to before. Only significant overweight compared to control group was seen in CG group (p<0.007). The amounts of water consumption were significantly lower in OO (63.3±6.5ml; p<0.043) and CO (61.5±6.8ml; p<0.027) groups compare to control 95.6±10.3ml).
