The experimental animals used were 34 healthy mice (Mus musculus). Data analysis with normal distribution was tested by One Way Anova, otherwise Kruskal Wallis was tested. Meanwhile, categorical data were tested Univariate. The results showed that in the third treatment (P3) mice experienced differences in the treatment given milk kefir with the addition of sorghum flour and high fat diet feed for 8 weeks or 56 days there was a difference in weight loss as measured by weight gain (p<0.05), then there wasn’t difference in appetite (p>0.05), while there was a difference in abdominal fat compared to the control group.
