Use of very low-calorie diet (VLCD) regimen with various types of exercise and behavior modification has become a new approach in weight loss treatment over the past 10 years and involves hundreds of thousands of Americans who are severely obese (BMI >30 kg/m 2 ) and sedentary. To date the studies examining various combinations of exercise and VLCD regimens on the repartitioning of body composition and adaptations in resting metabolic rate (RMR) remain plagued with discrepancies. A priority exists to discover effective exercise programs during a VLCD therapy to achieve desirable repartitioning of body composition and preservation of resting metabolic rate (RMR). [TRUNCATED]
