In a nutshell: Abdominal obesity is known to contribute to the development of insulin resistance (IR) and cardiovascular disease. This study examined the effects of body weight reduction with and without exercise over abdominal fat tissue and IR. The authors found that 5% weight loss reduced abdominal far and IR in obese individuals but exercise did not add to the effect of weight loss on the outcome variables.
