A 45-Minute Vigorous Exercise Bout Increases Metabolic Rate for 14 Hours – Research Review

Knab AM et. al. A 45-Minute Vigorous Exercise Bout Increases Metabolic Rate for 14 Hours.  Med Sci Sports Exerc. 2011 Feb 8. [Epub ahead of print]

INTRODUCTION: The magnitude and duration of the elevation in resting energy expenditure following vigorous exercise have not been measured in a metabolic chamber. This study investigated the effects of inserting a 45-min vigorous cycling bout into the daily schedule versus a controlled resting day on 24-h energy expenditure in a metabolic chamber.… Read More

Normal Weight Men and Women Overestimate Energy Expenditure – Research Review

Willbond SM et. al. Normal weight men and women overestimate exercise energy expenditure.  J Sports Med Phys Fitness. (2010) 50(4):377-84.

AIM: The limited potential of exercise to induce weight loss could be partly due to the overestimation of the energy cost of exercise. The objectives of this study were twofold: 1) to investigate whether men and women are able to accurately estimate exercise energy expenditure (EE); and 2) to determine whether they have the ability to accurately compensate for the EE of exercise during a buffet-type meal.… Read More

Low Fat Loss Response After Medium-Term Supervised Exercise in Obese is Associated with Exercise-Induced Increase in Food Reward – Research Review

Finlayson G et. ao. Low fat loss response after medium-term supervised exercise in obese is associated with exercise-induced increase in food reward.  J Obes. (2011);2011. pii: 615624. Epub 2010 Sep 20.

Objective. To examine exercise-induced changes in the reward value of food during medium-term supervised exercise in obese individuals. Subjects/Methods. The study was a 12-week supervised exercise intervention prescribed to expend 500 kcal/day, 5 d/week.… Read More

Role of Nonexercise Activity Thermogenesis in Resistance to Fat Gain in Humans – Research Review

Levine JA et. al. Role of nonexercise activity thermogenesis in resistance to fat gain in humans.  Science. (1999) Jan 8;283(5399):212-4.

Humans show considerable interindividual variation in susceptibility to weight gain in response to overeating. The physiological basis of this variation was investigated by measuring changes in energy storage and expenditure in 16 nonobese volunteers who were fed 1000 kilocalories per day in excess of weight-maintenance requirements for 8 weeks.… Read More

Obesity and Physical Inactivity: The Relevance of Reconsidering the Notion of Sedentariness

So, having already made one change to the structure of the research review and looking at more than paper at a time, I’ve decided that that approach is confusing, it also makes the titles and permalinks screwy which, as any good Internet marketer knows, is bad for SEO.  So moving forwards, I’m going to go back to only looking at a single study at a time (but still in less detail) but do them more often.… Read More
