Four mice were given a food pellet every 150 sec for 3 hr. All animals developed polydipsia. When the scheduled feeding was discontinued, water intake decreased. Polydipsia redeveloped following the reintroduction of the schedule immediately or after nine days of ad lib feeding. High negative correlations existed between water intake and body weight in all animals.
