Abstract

The theory that current supply of readily used energy is the primary control in feeding is embodied in a computer model of energy flows from the gut and to or from storage as fat. Values for all parameters are derived from physiological data. Meal patterns and cumulative food intakes are realistically predicted for normal and VMH-lesioned rats.
