Im still waiting to get the full text of this study but thought id throw up the abstract. The message from this study seems to be that, if you stop exercising, you activate a lipogenic gene profile in adipocytes that seeks to fatten you up.
This lipogenic gene profile seems to go above and beyond what you would of had if you had just been sedentary and never exercised instead. So in this context it looks like, its better to not start an exercise regime at all, rather than start it then stop it later.
If you start an exercise regime, better keep it up forever!
Compared with T, the isolated adipose cells (D rats) showed a 48% increase in both basal and maximally insulin-stimulated lipogenesis
This is as I suspected previously, I.E. that the adipocyte phenotype can control its size independent of numbers calories going in the organisms mouth. ( when I say adipocyte phenotype I simply the mean particular gene expression of an individual adipocyte, and the different ratio's of receptors on its surface etc.)
