The relationship between moderate exercise training (five 45 min sessions/week, brisk walking at 62+2% V02max for 15 weeks) and changes in nutrient intake was investigated in a group of 36 sedentary, mildly obese women, conducted using a two (exercise, EX and nonexercise, NEX groups) x three (baseline, six-, 15-week testing sessions) factorial design, with data analyzed using repeated measures ANOVA. The pattern of change over time between groups for kilocalorie intake tended to be different between groups [F(2,68)=2.50,p=0.089] with the EX group experiencing a significant decrease versus baseline by 15 weeks. Significant group x time interactions were found for carbohydrate, diet fiber, thiamin, niacin, vitamin B-6, and folacin, with intake tending to decrease in the EX group in contrast to an Change in intake of each The study was upward pattern for the NEX group, of these nutrients was significantly correlated with change in bread/cereal consumption. The pattern of change in bread/ cereal intake over time was significantly different between groups [Pillais Trace=0.266,F(2,33)=5.99,p=0.006] with significant decreases in intake seen in the EX group at six and 15 weeks versus baseline values. These data suggest that mildly obese do not tend to eat more or improve the quality of their nutrient intake with moderate exercise training.
