The aim of the study was to determine the combined effect of low-energy diet and recreational, “fat burning” exercise, on the concentration of thiobarbituric acid-reacting lipid peroxidation products (TBARS) in blood plasma of male and female subjects. Male and female subjects (n=11 and 18, respectively), aged 41.09.2 and 43.78.8 years, respectively, of BMI equal to 33.65.0 and 32.34.8, respectively, volunteered to participate in the study lasting two months. During that time, they were on a low-energy diet (600–1200 kcal) and exercised 3 times a week at an individually adjusted intensity. This resulted in a significant decrease of lipid peroxidation products (TBARS) in plasma despite an intensified lipolysis. The antioxidant protection was strengthened due to bioflavonoids and vitamins contained in the diet. Well balanced (with regard to intensity, form and duration) exercises, together with individually adjusted diet, brought about normalised body mass and composition, without negative effects on lipid metabolism.
