The goal of this study was to investigate how dietary fat intake modulates the effect of long term exercise training on body weight, intrahepatic and intramyocellular lipids (IHL & IMCL), and effect on insulin sensitivity in an animal model of long-term exercise. Long term exercise was found to result in significant elevations in IMCL and IHL under low fat background diet, and significant reductions in IMCL and IHL under a high fat background diet, compared to sedentary diet-matched controls. Dietary fat content did not modulate the effect of exercise on insulin sensitivity.
