impact of exercise on fat & glycogen store

Schrauwen P et al showed that lean subjects are capable of rapidly adjusting fat oxidation to fat intake on a high-fat diet when glycogen stores are lowered by exhaustive exercise. However, it has been proposed that obese subjects have impaired fat oxidation. Schrauwen P et al studied the effect of low glycogen stores on fat oxidation after a switch from a reduced-fat diet to an high-fat diet in obese subjects. They found, obese subjects are capable of rapidly adjusting fat oxidation to fat intake when glycogen stores are lowered by exhaustive exercise.
