Higher Intensity Exercise Better Before Fatty Meal

Beware of old sayings. Everything in moderation? Bad advice.

A short burst of intensive exercise before eating a high fat meal is better for blood vessel function in young people than the currently recommended moderate-intensity exercise, according to a new study from the University of Exeter.

So the local burger joint should have exercise machines which let you pay to do a really intense leg and arm work-out before you order your half pounder with cheese.

It showed that approximately 25 minutes of moderate-intensity cycling prevented the fall in blood vessel function after the high fat meal. However, performing just eight minutes of high-intensity cycling not only prevented this fall, but improved blood vessel function to a level that was superior to moderate-intensity exercise.

We really need better integration of exercise and eating. I'm serious about the intense exercise machines right next to the ordering counter at burger joints. I'd go out for burgers more often if they had them.

Not knowing the carb intake of a "high-fat meal" renders this meaningless.

Maybe we should all take to the woods and chase down our meals with a spear.
