HIGH-INTENSITY EXERCISE INCREASES FAT INTAKE more than low intensity exercise according to a recent study.
Thirty-two men and women, both young and old, engaged in either high or low intensity exercise for varying times so that both groups burned the same number of calories.
The following day the group engaged in the high intensity exercise consumed significantly more fat than those engaged in low intensity exercise (47% vs 40%, respectively).
The authors suggested that this may help explain the increasing prevalence of obesity.
That is, that society has changed its pattern of physical activity from one of low intensity exercise from activities such as work and walking to one of high intensity leisure time exercise which may increase fat intake.
