Energy substrate mobilization has been suggested as being a limiting factor for the rate of cold-induced thermogenesis (M), and consequently in delaying hypothermia. The evidence supporting this hypothesis in humans, however, is not convincing and the hypothesis has yet to be tested in a rigorous manner using a full heat balance analysis (partitional calorimetry). The goal of this study was therefore to re-investigate whether enhancing energy substrate mobilization by feeding cold-exposed… CONTINUE READING
