Effect of Daily Steps on Fat Metabolism

Study Description

Effect of Daily Steps on Fat Metabolism

Reduced ambulatory activity has been shown to effect the response to a high fat tolerance test (HFTT) after acute exercise. This study will evaluate the effect of varying levels of daily ambulation on response to a HFTT after an acute aerobic exercise bout.

Behavioral - Very Low Steps

Subjects will have a 2-day control period during which step count and diet will be controlled for and recreated for the other trials. Following this 2-day period, they will undergo the Very Low Stepping trial with the acute bout of exercise on day 2. Day 3 will consist of the lipid tolerance test to determine the ability of the body to clear triglycerides.
