Weight Loss Tips Without Exercise

Fuel Ingested During Exercise Studies show that glucose either taken by mouth or infused into the bloodstream during exercise does not reduce the rate of muscle glycogen utilization (B. Ahlborg et al, 1967b; Bergstrom & Hultman, 1967b; Coyle et al, 1986a; Noakes et al, 1988b). Rather, this glucose is burned by the muscles in place […] Read more

A drug that has a similar effect to caffeine is heparin. The main action of heparin, a substance first isolated from snake venom, is to prevent blood clotting. However, like caffeine, heparin also stimulates the release of free fatty acids from adipose tissue (see Exercises 3.2), causing blood free-fatty-acid levels to rise rapidly, reaching peak […] Read more

Factors Controlling the Size of Carbohydrate Stores Although Exercises 3.2 might suggest that the body can only store a fixed amount of carbohydrate, this amount can in fact be quite different between individuals and may vary greatly in the same person at different times. Let us consider the factors that explain this observation. One factor […] Read more

BODY FUEL STORES In medical science it is traditional to consider that the average or normal person is a 70-kg (154-lb) healthy male. The following discussion will use this average subject as a reference point. Exercises 3.2 lists the weights of the different organs of the body in a 70-kg (154-lb) man. The largest organ […] Read more

Fats For fat to be used as an energy source, the fatty acid components of the triglyceride molecule must first be freed from the glycerol molecule. This is achieved by hormone-sensitive lipase, an enzyme that exists in the adipose cell membrane and that hydrolyzes triglyceride to free fatty acids and glycerol (see Exercises 3.2). Hormone […] Read more

Blood glucose levels represent a balance between the rate of glucose production by the liver and the rate of glucose utilization by muscle and other tissues. When the rate of blood glucose utilization exceeds the rate of production by the liver, blood glucose levels fall, causing impaired function, particularly of the brain, which depends on […] Read more

Carbohydrates The absorbed glucose, fructose, and galactose ultimately travel to the liver, where the fructose and galactose are converted to glucose. The studies of Katz and McGarry (1984) suggest that most of the ingested glucose must first be metabolized to lactate by either skeletal muscle or possibly by the liver itself (D.W. Foster, 1984). The […] Read more

Practical Application of Research on V02Max, Running Economy, and Peak Treadmill Running Velocity Few athletes in the world have ready access to laboratories capable of measuring V02max, running economy, or peak treadmill running velocity. Thus, the information that we have covered in some detail in the previous pages may be very interesting but may at […] Read more

OTHER PREDICTORS OF RUNNING PERFORMANCE A fascination with the belief that the V02max is the alpha and omega of exercise physiology has blinded us to the possibility that other factors may be equal or better predictors of running performance (Noakes, 1988b). My colleagues and I were first alerted to this possibility by finding that peak […] Read more

IMPLICATIONS OF RESEARCH ON RUNNING ECONOMY Most of the early physiological research into the effects of running training focused almost exclusively on the effects of training on the athlete‚Äôs V02max. Yet we now know that the V02max of a healthy individual is relatively sExercises and changes relatively little, even with very intensive training (J. Daniels, […] Read more
