Nutrition and Physical Activity for Obesity

2014-08-27 03:13:58 | BioPortfolio

Summary

At the present time, scientific consensus exists on obesity multifactorial etiopatogenia. As well, professionals and researchers agree that the treatment must approach several scopes, such as dietetic, physical activity, pharmacologic and surgical. These two last ones should not be the first election and must be reserved for those cases of morbid obesities or in case the previous ones have failed. The combination of diet and exercise is still not sufficiently studied, in special, the addition of strength training, as we propose in this project, for which established intervention protocols do not exist, and that could suppose an additional benefit in the reduction of risk factors.

Therefore, the objectives that we aim in this project are enumerated below:

- To discover which are the most effective training protocols and to determine what type of exercise combined with nutrition is more appropriate for obesity intervention programs.

- To establish the relationship between markers related with cardiovascular risk (adopokines and lipid profile) and the different intervention protocols proposed.

- To describe the influence of nine genetic polymorphisms (selected by their relationship with the energy expense and the physical yield) on the effect of different training protocols.

- To determine how important is body composition (fat mass and muscle mass mainly) in total daily energy expenditure.

- To establish rules of nutritional and exercise intervention that can be applied in public and private training centers. If the proposed objectives are fulfilled, this would contribute to an improvement in patients health in long term, along with an enormous saving in public health. Therefore, the purpose of this project is to propose new lines of intervention in overweight and obese adults that, until now, little have been investigated. This way, resistance training is proposed in combination with cardiovascular training and endocrinologic treatment. It fits to emphasize that, as far as we know, it is the first project of these characteristics, that puts in touch the public and private sector (hospitals, universities and fitness area), to establish standardized relations protocols to allow a close pursuit of obese patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.

Activities related to WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY. Treatment methods include DIET; EXERCISE; BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION; medications; and BARIATRIC SURGERY.

A condition of having excess fat in the abdomen. Abdominal obesity is typically defined as waist circumferences of 40 inches or more in men and 35 inches or more in women. Abdominal obesity raises the risk of developing disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension and METABOLIC SYNDROME X.

Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.
