Understanding daily exercise effects on energy balance is important. This study examined the effects of 7 days of imposed exercise (EX) and no exercise (N-EX) on free-living energy intake (EI) and physical activity energy expenditure (PAEE) in 9 men. Free-living EI was higher in EX compared with N-EX. Total and vigorous PAEE were higher, with PAEE in sedentary activities lower, during EX compared with N-EX. Daily running (for 7 days) induced EI compensation of ∼60% exercise-induced EE.
Daily running for 7 days induced incomplete EI compensation accounting for ∼60% of the exercise-induced EE.
