Fatty acids (FAs) as fuel for energy utilization during exercise originate from different sources: FAs transported in the circulation either bound to albumin or as triacylglycerol (TG) carried by very low density lipoproteins and FAs from lipolysis of muscle TG stores. Despite a high rate of energy expenditure during high intensity exercise the total FA oxidation is suppressed to below that observed during moderate intensity exercise. Although this has been known for many years, the mechanisms… CONTINUE READING
