The amount of sugar, fat, and calories and the physical properties of these diets have been manipulated in many ways, but consistent is the finding that animals given access to food high in sugar and fat—even when healthy food is freely available—consume calorie-dense, nutrient-poor food in abundance, gain a great deal of weight, and exhibit .
