anabolic hormones that promote positive protein, fat, and carbohydrate growth, restriction of nutrient supply is likely to produce growth deficits of all tissues, not just fat (i.e., growth retardation involves limitation of muscle growth as well as fat and glycogen). Indeed, chronic experimental selective energy (glucose) restriction in the fetal sheep leads to increased protein breakdown as well as to lower rates of fetal growth and lipid content. In contrast, as shown by the growth curves in Figure 6 from human infants born prematurely at different times
