Abstract

Time-restricted feeding (TRF) involves splitting the day into two windows, a feeding window and a fasting window. TRF positively affects mitochondria and metabolic health. Aerobic exercise is shwon to have the same effect. However, the combination of the two in healthy subjects is not as extensively studied. The purpose of this study was to examine how changing the window of feeding in relation to exercise changes performance and mitochondrial biogenesis. Healthy, young mice were divided into 3 groups: an ad libitum control group (CON), a 16-hour fast with an 8-hour feed immediately post exercise (IM), and a 16-hour fast with an 8-hour feed starting 5 hours after exercise (DG). No differences in mitochondrial biogenesis and performance were found between groups. Our results sugegst that timing of ones fast in relation to exercise doesn't seem to significantly affect muscle adaptation from aerobic exercise.
