Growth Hormone Increases with Exercise

Growth Hormone is a vital hormone for those who want to lose weight.  Growth hormone enhances fat loss and helps control how your body uses protein, fat and carbohydrates when you are resting and during exercise.  So what does this mean to you? For optimal fat loss, exercise at a higher intensity, especially if you are older and obese.  Literature from the University of Virginia, found that it is with high intensity exercise that  growth hormone is released.  Growth hormone release is decreased four to seven times as people age and is lower in obese people than it is in lean people.   Also, if you eat before your workout make sure it is a meal that not high in fat.  Fatty meals consumed shortly before exercise reduce growth hormone release and decreases the benefits of exercise on fat burning and weight loss.
