The estrogen hormones have been shown to be highly glycogenic as well as lipolytic in nature. It is unknown whether the metabolic actions of estrogens impact upon energy metabolism during exercise. The composition of prior diet, however, does affect exercise energy metabolism. This study examined the influence of menstrual cycle phase (mid-follicular [FP; low estrogen] vs. mid-luteal [LP; high estrogen]) and diet composition on the rate of substrate oxidation for carbohydrate (CHO) and lipid at… CONTINUE READING
