Effect of aerobic exercise and corn peptide on fat metabolism of overweighed and obese female college students

Objective: This research is aimed to explore the effect of aerobic exercise and corn peptide on fat metabolism of overweighed and obese female college students.

Methods: 30 female college students were selected and randomly divided into two groups. Both groups received aerobic exercise. On this basis, the corn peptide group was given corn peptide while the control group was given the same quantity of protein powder. After the experiment, the change of BMI, lipase, and plasma free fatty acid of both groups were compared.

Results: The BMI, body mass, and body fat rate of the corn peptide group were lower than the control group. The difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). The plasma free fat acid level and lipase activity of the corn peptide group were significantly higher than the control group. The difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). After experiment, the TC, TG, LDL, and HDL of the corn peptide group were improved. The difference was statistically significant (P<0.05).

Conclusion: Corn peptide combined with aerobic exercise (for 8 weeks) can effectively improve the body fat rate and BMI among overweighed and obese female college students.
