Acute Exercise and Energy Balance Regulation: Effect of Intensity

2014-08-27 03:17:07 | BioPortfolio


Physical activity is mainly considered and use for its impact on energy expenditure in the treatment of obesity, and less is known concerning its indirect effects on energy intake. The aim of this work is to clarify the impact of an acute bout of exercise, depending on its intensity (high versus low), on the following energy intake and nutrient utilization, in obese and non-obese boys and men.


20 adolescent boys (10 obese and 10 leans) and 20 men (10 obese and 10 lean) will complete a sub-maximal test on a ergo cycle to draw their linear relationship between VO2 and Fc. Then they will enter a metabolic chamber three times, for 24 hours each. A first session will be considered as sedentary, and volunteers will remain inactive. During the second and third session, they will have to complete a cycling test generating an energy expenditure of 400 Kcal, once at low intensity (40%VO2max) and once at high intensity (70% VO2max). Those three sessions will be realized in a randomized order with an interval of at least 7 days and urinary collection over the 24hours will be done during all the sessions. At the beginning of the protocol, blood samples will be taken, body composition assessed by DXA and adiposity location evaluated by MNR.

Metabolic Impact of Fructose Restriction in Obese Children

The sugar fructose has been implicated not just as a cause of obesity, but as a cause of the metabolic diseases that go along with obesity, termed "metabolic syndrome". Obese children with...

Evaluation of Pulse Fibre Supplementation on Obesity and the Metabolic Syndrome

The recent dramatic increase in obesity has been linked to a reduction of dietary fibre intake. We hypothesized that supplementing the diet of overweight and obesity adults with pulse fibr...

Metabolic syndrome is directly related to obesity. This study investigated the use of a plant based formulation to improve on the condition of people with metabolic syndrome.

"Metabolically Healthy" Obesity and Hyperuricemia Increase Risk for Hypertension and Diabetes: 5-year Japanese Cohort Study.

Whether obesity without metabolic syndrome (i.e., "metabolically healthy" obesity) confers similar or less metabolic risk remains controversial.

The Role of Sex and Sex Hormones in Regulating Obesity-Induced Inflammation.

Metabolic and non-metabolic complications due to obesity are becoming more prevalent, yet our understanding of the mechanisms driving these is not. This is due to individual risk factor variability ma...

Depressive symptoms in obesity: Relative contribution of low-grade inflammation and metabolic health.

Recent reports suggest that the risk of depressive symptoms in obesity is potentiated in subjects presenting a metabolically unhealthy phenotype. Inflammation is often considered a defining criteria o...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Fatty tissue inside the ABDOMINAL CAVITY, including visceral fat and retroperitoneal fat. It is the most metabolically active fat in the body and easily accessible for LIPOLYSIS. Increased visceral fat is associated with metabolic complications of OBESITY.

A procedure consisting of the SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS of the proximal part of the JEJUNUM to the distal portion of the ILEUM, so as to bypass the nutrient-absorptive segment of the SMALL INTESTINE. Due to the severe malnutrition and life-threatening metabolic complications, this method is no longer used to treat MORBID OBESITY.

The condition of weighing two, three, or more times the ideal weight, so called because it is associated with many serious and life-threatening disorders. In the BODY MASS INDEX, morbid obesity is defined as having a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2.

A sub-PHENOTYPE of obese individuals who have a risk for CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES between that of healthy individuals with normal weight and unhealthy individuals with obesity.
