    Center for Human Nutrition, University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, Denver, 80262, USA
    Obes Res 13:2102-12. 2005
    ..Higher calcium and dairy intakes may be associated with lower body weights, but a mechanism in humans has yet to be elucidated. We compared the effects of a dairy-based high-calcium diet and a low-calcium diet on macronutrient oxidation...

    Edward L Melanson
    Center for Human Nutrition, University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, Denver, Colorado 80262, USA
    J Strength Cond Res 19:61-6. 2005
    ..Thus, in women, the increase in EE due to resistance exercise is largely seen during and immediately after the exercise. The increased energy demand is met by increased carbohydrate oxidation, with no increase in 24-hour fat oxidation...

    Edward Louis Melanson
    Division of Endocrinology, University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, Denver 80262, USA
    Am J Cardiol 94:1217-20. 2004

  1. Fat Metabolism During Exercise in Obesity
    EDWARD MELANSON; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..I believe the results from these studies will lead directly to additional studies to further explain why exercise may be important in the prevention and treatment of obesity. ..
  2. Energy Expenditure & Activity During & After Exercise-Induced Weight Loss
    EDWARD MELANSON; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..If our hypotheses are correct, then data from the proposed study could be used to improve the effectiveness of exercise-based weight loss and weight loss maintenance programs. ..
