This was an experimental study with crossover design conducted in 34 subjects. We showed that Zumba training was associated with the reduction of body fat (P = .023) but not body weight (P = .783). This training was also associated with increased fat intake (P = .004) and sleep duration (P = .043). After compiling the effect of dietary intake, physical activity, and sleep, we found that fat intake during Zumba training was an important determinant of weight changes. © 2019 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
