Figure 3. Behavioral satiety sequence (BSS) of the different groups of mice. Time in seconds spent in the BSS of Standard Diet group (A), Standard Diet + Cactus Flour (B), High Fat Diet (C) and High Fat Diet + Cactus Flour (D). The vertical line shows the point of satiety where the feeding and resting line crosses. Food consumption is shown in grams (E) and in kcal (F) of the SD, SD-CF, HFD and HFD-CF groups of mice. One-way ANOVA followed by Bonferroni’s post hoc test was used. Data showed in means ± SEM, n=6, P≤0.05 vs *SD or +HFD
