  1. amean differences are significant; b‘Greenhouse-Geisser’ correction procedure was used; cPillai-Spur, Wilks-Lambda, Hotelling-Spur and ‘biggest characteristical root of Roy’. ANOVA, analysis of variance; SAST, somatic adipose soft tissue; SLT, somatic lean tissue; TAT, total adipose tissue; TLT, total lean tissue; TSV, total somatic volume; TVV, total visceral volume; VAT, visceral adipose tissue; VLT, visceral lean tissue.
  2. Bold numbers mark the prefered P-value of the prevered ANOVA regarding sphericity assumption proven by Mauchly-Test.
