Abstract
The goal of this study was to determine the changes in lipid utilization associated with cold exposure in humans, and whether plasma triglyceride (TG) and lipolysis play an important role in lipid metabolism during cold exposure. This was achieved by: calculating the rates of substrate oxidation from indirect calorimetry, by performing an intravenous fat tolerance test (IVFTT; an index of plasma TG utilization) and by measuring changes in plasma glycerol levels (an index of lipolysis). Since fat clearance is increased 24 h after exercise, a second cold exposure combined with an IVFTT were also performed 24 h after the first cold exposure, to evaluate the possibility of a delayed increase in fat tolerance.
