Your Gender Determines If Exercise Will Help Control Your Body Weight

Gone are does days where it is thought that the answer to body weight control is exercise. Why, because it has been noticed that even under rigorous exercise, one can still keep adding weight. Wait... Before you blame it on the person's food intake habit, consider this research.

A new research conducted at the University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus proves that Male and Female response to exercise is not the same.

The research was done by Rebecca Foright on rats. In the study, she fed both male and female rats with high fat diet and then trained half of them to run on a treadmill for 10 weeks. After the completion of the 10th week, the difference in response of the exercise by the two gender of rats was surprisingly remarkable. Why.
The male rats that was made to exercise ate less food and thus gained less weight than those male rats that did not exercise, while the female rats that exercise did not reduce their food consumption, but when they were weighed, they weigh the same weight with those other female that just ate the high fat diet without doing exercise.

When the research team repeated the study in males, but this time with low fat diet, they discover that the impact of the exercise on their body weight was evident even sooner than in the high fat diet fed male rats.

There is one more research that shows that males response to exercise as a means of controlling body weight is higher that female's and you can read it up >>> HERE <<<
