Melbourne: More body fat could be lost by completing a shorter workout than a longer one and challenging accepted wisdom on weight loss and training regimes, researchers have claimed. A study of healthy but sedentary men, aged between 20-40, has found that a test group who exercised for half an hour a day, lost more weight than a group that exercised for 60 minutes a day, News.com.au reported. In the study, which was accepted for publication, the researchers from the University of Copenhagen recruited 64 “moderately overweight” subjects who never normally engaged in any regular exercise.The subjects were randomly chosen to participate in either “high dose” or “low dose” 13-week aerobic exercise programs, mostly based around running or cycling.A further control group participated in no exercise at all.All were required to stick to, and monitor, their usual diets.The non-exercising group recorded no noticeable weight change, while both exercise groups lost weight.
