Abstract
The study was aimed at studying the influence of exercise training on the endocrine control of energy balance in various conditions which are known to affect energy expenditure. These situations were: (1) following a standard meal; (2) during cold exposure; and (3) after ingestion of caffeine. For that purpose three different studies were undertaken in which eight male sedentary subjects were compared to eight male highly trained subjects. Similar procedures were used in these experiments. The resting metabolic rate was determined in the fasting state and after the beginning of the procedure O2 consumed and CO2 produced were measured at intervals for a period of 90 minutes. At the same time blood sample were taken for the determination of insulin, glucose, adrenaline and noradrenaline. A summary of these studies is given and attached is included a full length report of the three experiments with appropriate references.
