Dwyer, Dominic M. ORCID: and Boakes, R. A. 1997. Activity-based anorexia in rats as failure to adapt to a feeding schedule. Behavioral Neuroscience 111 (1) , pp. 195-205. 10.1037/0735-7044.111.1.195

Progressive weight loss resulting from restriction to a daily 1.5-hr feeding period and access to a running wheel, the Activity-Based Anorexia (ABA) effect, was obtained in 3 experiments. However, bodyweight recovered when adaptation to the feeding schedule preceded access to the wheel (Experiment 1), when feeding was at the start of the dark period (Experiments 2 and 3), and when wheel access was denied in the 4 hr before food (Experiment 4). It was concluded that ABA results from interference with adaptation to a new feeding schedule due to the development of anticipatory behavior.
