Mean body mass in female guinea pigs maintained on a control, high-PUFA, or high-SFA diet during gestation and after parturition. Circles represent the body mass for each group and day (mean ± s.e.m.); lines for gestation (day 0 to 65) represent the mean fitted values of a linear mixed effect model (corrected for repeated measurements) on the body mass change, including the second-order polynomial term for day and the total litter mass as covariate. Sample sizes: control n = 10, PUFA n = 8, SFA n = 10. ** P ≤ 0.01 comparing SFA and the remaining groups. Group:day effect during gestation: P ≤ 0.05
