This study focuses on the impact of various diets on plasma triglyceride concentrations, body weight, heart weight:body weight, and fat weight. We will specifically highlight the high fat diet and how it impacts the plasma triglyceride levels. The findings indicate that prolonged high-fat diets increase fat weight, body weight, and heart weight:body weight, while there was no significant differences in plasma triglyceride concentrations as compared to the controls.
