Wistar rats were given a lipogenic diet with and without the addition of (-)hydroxycitrate for 15 days. Daily food intake and weekly body weight gain were recorded during the feeding period. The rats were then killed and blood, liver and epididymal fat were collected. Inclusion of (-)hydroxycitrate in the diet resulted in a significant reduction in food intake, body weight, epididymal fat and serum triglyceride and a decrease in the feed efficiency ratio. The decrease in food intake, body weight gain and feed efficiency ratio brought about by (-)hydroxycitrate was dependent on the amount in the diet.
