How different amounts of walking influence fat burning and metabolic responses to a high-fat meal Original paper

In this randomized controlled trial, walking 5,000 steps or more during a single day increased fat oxidation compared to walking only 2,000 steps, and walking 10,000 steps during a single day improved the metabolic response to a high-fat pizza meal.

This Study Summary was published on November 27, 2023.

Quick Summary

In this randomized controlled trial, walking 5,000 steps or more during a single day increased fat oxidation compared to walking only 2,000 steps, and walking 10,000 steps during a single day improved the metabolic response to a high-fat pizza meal.

What was studied?

The effect of daily step count on postprandial (postmeal) metabolism in response to a high-fat meal.
