PURPOSE Obesity is associated with increased platelet reactivity. Greater platelet reactivity presages adverse events in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). We investigated whether exercise training and weight loss reduce platelet reactivity in overweight subjects with CAD. METHODS Study subjects (N = 46) were enrolled in a prospective randomized study of exercise training and behavioral weight loss, which contrasted the amount of exercise performed (750 vs. >3000 kcal/week… CONTINUE READING
