Exercise Assists In Preventing Fat Storage

A new study has found that regular exercise appears to protect the body from depositing fat when a person increases their short-term fat consumption. In the study, researchers took a group of ten sedentary women and had them exercise at three different levels while altering their diet consisting of 30 percent calories from fat to 50 percent calories from fat. They found the more the women exercised, the faster they were able to burn the fat calories. In other words, for those who exercise, occasional indulgences in high fatty meals appear to be well tolerated. For those not exercising, even occasional fatty indulgences can result in an almost immediate storage to fat.
