Muscle maintenance is vital to ensure healthy ageing.
In research with mice, researchers found that aerobic exercise changed how the animals consumed oxygen, metabolised sugar, and how tired they were when they weren't exercising. The mice were leaner and had fewer signs of inflammation.
The research team isolated muscle tissue and focused on satellite cells - stem cells that live in skeletal muscle and regenerate muscle throughout adulthood.
These cells are activated continuously, but over time become fatigued and stop renewing. Endurance exercise increases proteins involved in quieting and activating these satellite cells, which enable self-renewal or differentiation.
The calories we burn every day include not only movement but all the energy needed to run the thousands of functions that keep us alive.
Exercise is like a wonder drug for many health outcomes: reducing blood pressure, reduces the risk of diabetes of heart diseases and slows developing cognitive impairment from Alzheimer's and dementia.
But as for losing weight, it helps more in weight maintenance than in losing the actual weight.
Exercise alone has a modest contribution to weight loss. But when you alter one component, cutting the number of calories you eat in a day to lose weight, doing more exercise than usual, this sets off a cascade of changes in the body that affect how many calories you use up and, in turn, your bodyweight.
Taking up exercise could change your desire for specific foods.
One study found that novice exercisers start to have a diminished appetite for fattening foods. However...
