Update on Exercise and Weight Control

Description

In general, it is agreed that regular exercise is associated with a better prevention of weight gain and improved weight maintenance following weight loss. The topic of exercise and weight control has been extensively covered. Recently, there is an emerging focus on individual variability and a need to explain why some people experience lower than expected weight loss or fail to maintain lost weight. An area which also requires further investigation is the effects of exercise on energy storage and energy balance—that is, body composition. There is accumulating evidence emphasizing the beneficial effects of exercise on the reduction of ectopic body fat stores—an outcome that may be easily overlooked with traditional markers of weight loss success. Compensation of the exercise-induced energy deficit is another issue that requires more work. Potentially, there are a range of behavioral responses which could undermine the effectiveness of exercise as a successful method of weight control. For example, understanding how structured exercise impacts on nonexercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT) and eating behavior are central to improving the understanding why, in some people, exercise interventions fail to induce the expected weight loss.

We invite authors to present original research articles and review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts in defining and promoting the role of exercise in weight control. We are particularly interested in manuscripts that report the results of exercise-induced weight loss with emphasis on the effects of exercise on ectopic fat mobilization, NEAT, and appetite regulation and how they contribute to improving more effective exercise-induced weight loss strategies.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Exercise-induced weight loss with different exercise modalities (e.g., resistance training, circuit training)
  • Effects of exercise on the mobilization ectopic fat
  • Acute but more importantly chronic effects of exercise on appetite regulation, food intake, nutrient, and taste preferences
  • Acute and chronic effects of exercise on nonexercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT)

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jobes/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
