Weight loss and cardiovascular fitness during a 1-week diet and exercise program.


Fifty-two adults ranging in age from 18 to 70 years completed a

1-week diet program involving both aerobic and anaerobic exercise anaerobic exercise,
n physical activity, which instigates a metabolism that does not depend on oxygen. Examples include isotonics, in which the muscles contract against an object of resistance with movement (e.g. . The

subjects were divided into 2 groups, providing for a single-blinded,

randomized control study design.

The control group did not participate in the diet and exercise

program and had measurements repeated at a 1-week interval to assess

reliability of repeated measures in the study. The experimental group,

after baseline measurements, engaged in a combined 1-week 1200 calorie

per day diet and exercise program. For the exercise program, on each of

6 days, the subjects in the experimental group exercised following an

aerobic exercise aerobic exercise,
n sustained repetitive physical activity, such as walking, dancing, cycling, and swimming, that elevates the heart rate and increases oxygen consumption resulting in improved functioning of cardio-vascular and respiratory systems.
