Scientists at the University of Michegan have found that it only takes one, yes 1 exercise session to kick start your metabolism. Giving hope to millions of overweight and obese individuals this makes every session seem worthwhile.

At times, when you are over weight all the exercise and lifestyle dietary changes can seem to be useless, it can be so difficult to keep your motivation up and your pain levels down when beginning and continuing on your weight loss and health journey. Yet, this news gives all of us hope.

Most weight related issues are now known to be caused by metabolic disorders such as insulin and leptin resistance, and the lifestyle changes needed to prevent many of the diseases associated with these health challenges can be a bit daunting. They are simple changes, but not always easy as one of the challenges of this kind of metabolic syndrome is depression.

However, if even one session of exercise can re-start our metabolism and increase our fat burning rate, we can keep our motivation up one session at a time.  “According to Andrea Cornford, a member of the research team, “Exercise decreases everyone’s insulin resistance and therefore reduces the chances of developing diseases such as type 2 diabetes. This study shows that even a single bout of exercise helps obese individuals increase their body’s fat-burning rate and improve their metabolic health.”

A team of researchers has examined the effect of exercise on fat accumulation in a new study involving five obese women. In one session the women overate and did not exercise; in a follow-on session they overate and did exercise. The researchers found that:

  • the body’s fat-burning oxidation rate was reduced after one day of overeating;
  • conversely, just one session of exercise increased the rate of fat-burning oxidation; and
  • exercise increased the amount of fat that would eventually be stored in the muscle.Science Daily
