Helping finding insulin study!

Hello, anyone here experienced in the Low carb scientific literature is greatly welcome! I am looking for a famous rat study that demonstrated insulin being the main fat storage mechanism behind weight gain and obesity. In the study they turned off the rats ability to produce insulin inside the body and over fed the rats. The study found that without insulin the rats couldn't gain weight no matter how much they were over fed.


If anyone knows the study it would be very helpful. I'm currently in a class debate attempting to champion the benefits of a low carb approach vs traditional calories in/calories but for the life of me I can't recall the name of this study that proves this basic science principle of low carb weight loss.

- Thanks
