  Purpose

The investigators aimed to evaluate the health benefits of physical training per se, weight loss per se and exercise-induced weight loss in young, overweight men. The investigators hypothesized that physical training would have independent effects on various health parameters (insulin sensitivity, fasting glucose and insulin, total and abdominal fat mass, waist circumference, blood pressure and key muscle proteins), and that a concomitant weight loss from physical activity would increase the effect.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in insulin sensitivity [ Time Frame: week 0 and 13 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Before and after the 12 week interventions a 1-step, 120 min, hyperinsulinaemic, euglycemic clamp was performed. After an initial 2mL bolus of insulin infusate, insulin was infused at 40 microU/min/kg.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Changes in body composition [ Time Frame: DEXA: week 0, 2, 6, 10, and 13; MRI: Week 0 and 13 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Before, during and after the 12-week interventions changes in: Body mass, Lean body mass, Fat mass, Abdominal fat mass, and Viceral and subcutaneous fat were assesed by DEXA and MRI scans.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Physical training, unchanged diet
Daily endurance training equivalent to 600 kcal/day and unchanged habitual diet
Behavioral: 12 weeks of lifestyle change
Participants were randomly assigned to a 12-week intervention in one of four groups: Training (T), energy-reduced Diet (D), Training and increased- Diet (T-iD) or Control (C). The interventions consisted of: T: increased physical activity through daily endurance training equivalent to 600 kcal/day, unchanged diet; D: sedentary lifestyle, reduced diet by 600 kcal/day primarily through reducing serving sizes and substituting energy dense with less energy dense nutrients; T-iD: increased physical activity through daily endurance training equivalent to 600 kcal/day, increased diet by 600 kcal/day primarily through increasing serving sizes and consuming energy dense nutrients; C: sedentary lifestyle and unchanged diet.
Active Comparator: Physical training, increased diet
Daily endurance training equivalent to 600 kcal/day, and increased diet by 600 kcal/day.

Active Comparator: Diet, unchanged physical activity
Energy-reduced diet by 600 kcal/day, and unchanged sedentary lifestyle

No Intervention: Control
Unchanged sedentary lifestyle and diet
Behavioral: 12 weeks of lifestyle change
Participants were randomly assigned to a 12-week intervention in one of four groups: Training (T), energy-reduced Diet (D), Training and increased- Diet (T-iD) or Control (C). The interventions consisted of: T: increased physical activity through daily endurance training equivalent to 600 kcal/day, unchanged diet; D: sedentary lifestyle, reduced diet by 600 kcal/day primarily through reducing serving sizes and substituting energy dense with less energy dense nutrients; T-iD: increased physical activity through daily endurance training equivalent to 600 kcal/day, increased diet by 600 kcal/day primarily through increasing serving sizes and consuming energy dense nutrients; C: sedentary lifestyle and unchanged diet.

Detailed Description:

At baseline, during the intervention and in the week following the intervention participants underwent a panel of tests:

  • Cardio respiratory fitness
  • blood pressure
  • anthropometric measures

At baseline and after the intervention a hyperinsulinemic, euglycemic clamp were performed to asses insulin sensitivity.

Tissue and blood samples were also collected for further analysis:

  • Total-protein analysis of selected proteins
  • Fasting plasma glucose, insulin and free fatty acids
