Special Issue "Exercise or Physical Activity and Energy Balance or Metabolism in Health and Disease"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 December 2021.
Exercise or physical activity require a tremedous demand for metabolic energy. First, this high energy demand may challenge the energy balance. While this may be beneficial in cases of overweight and obesity, for example, this may be more detrimental in the case of long-duration exercises (e.g., ultra endurance events or military missions). To circumvent/avoid possible deleterious effects, various nutritional strategies before, during or even after exercise can be implemeted. Second, different sources of energy are mobilized during exercise and the involvement of these different energy sources varies/changes according to exercise duration and intensity as well as the nutritional/energetic/metabolic status of the subject/patient. This metabolic flexibity is important to fuel the exercising muscles and consequently for athletic performance. If physical training modifes/improves the metabolic flexility, this latter may be impeded by various factors including energy stores and disease. Papers dealing with energy balance or metabolism, metabolic flexibility, nutritional strategies before, during of after exercise or physical acitvity in health and disease are welcome.
