Calorie Fulfillment Important For Bone Health When Exercising

by Prachee published on -

Exercise and strict control on the calorie intake is often recommended if you are looking to build a better body with weight loss. However, that might not be the best for your bones. Research suggests that calorie restriction and exercise together could make your bones weaker.

The animal study conducted on mice was conducted by a team of researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and is due to be published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research. It aimed to answer if in cases of calorie restrictions, exercise might be harmful to bone health, while also trying to understand the response of the marrow adipose tissue to these conditions.

Findings of the study clearly suggest that exercising can hurt your bones if your body is experiencing calorie deficiency. Interestingly, in these two situations, marrow adipose tissue was also found to be decreasing.

While it might seem like a good idea to restrict your diet and add strenuous physical activity to your routine, it might end up weakening you from within. Exercise needs to be supplemented with appropriate nutrition. Protection Status
