PURPOSE Determine whether voluntary wheel running triggers compensatory changes in nonexercise activity in lean and high-fat diet fed mice. METHODS C57Bl/6 mice received a control (C) or a high-fat diet (H) and half of them had free access to a running wheel 5days/week (CE and HE, respectively) for 10weeks. Energy intake, nonexercise activity (global activity, distance covered and average speed of displacement in the home cage) and energy expenditure (EE) were evaluated at weeks 5 and 10… CONTINUE READING
