Fasting for 72 h increases intramyocellular lipid content in nondiabetic, physically fit men.

The purpose of this study was to determine changes in intramyocellular lipid (IMCL) content in the vastus lateralis of nondiabetic, physically fit males over 72 h of fasting. Six men, mean age 35 yr (range 23-55 yr), body mass index 23.7 kg/m2 (21.2-27.4 kg/m2), undertook a water-only fast for 84 h. Vastus lateralis IMCL content was determined using proton… CONTINUE READING
