Rhesus monkeys inhibited their feeding in response to intragastric nutrient preloads, so as to maintain a constant caloric intake. There is a definite dose-response relationship to calories which does not depend on the volume, caloric concentration, or nature of the nutrient. This accurate control is accomplished even though some of the preload remains in the stomach throughout thefeeding period.
