Topics in Clinical Nutrition: April/June 2017 - Volume 32 - Issue 2 - p 152-160 doi: 10.1097/TIN.0000000000000100 Buy Metrics Abstract The aim of this study was to develop a new exercise regime with a mixture of aerobic and strength training combined with a low-calorie diet (1200 kcal/d) and to evaluate its health benefit in overweight/obese individuals. In 8 weeks of study, participants were divided into 2 groups: a low-calorie diet alone and a low-calorie diet with exercise regimen. The low-calorie diet combined with aerobic and strength training had a superior effect on weight loss and improved body composition (but not on glucose and lipid profile compared with low-calorie diet alone). © 2017 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
