Abstract

The thermic effect of food (TEF) is the increment in energy expenditure above resting metabolic rate associated with the cost of absorption, metabolism, and storage of food. Previous studies have shown that TEF is enhanced by aerobic exercise. The purpose of this study was to determine if a similar effect occurs with anaerobic exercise (weight lifting). VO2 was measured after ingestion of a 660 kcal meal with and without prior completion of a weight-training regimen. TEF was 42% higher after the exercise trial (t = 2.539, p < .017), compared with the control trial. These results indicate that prior anaerobic exercise also leads to an enhanced TEF.
