The effect of exercise and diet on insulin sensitivity, weight loss and lipid profile in overweight women.

Formal

We want to investigate the effect of low-carb/high-fat diet combined with exercise on insulin sensitivity, lipid profile, weight loss and cardiovascular fitness.

Description

The project is an 8-week exercise and/or diet intervention, where the participants have either restriction in calorie intake or a combination of exercise and a calorie restriction. During the intervention all participants will have regular meetings with dietitians to secure a complete and healthy diet. Exercise groups will train 3x a week with a qualified instructor.
