Effect Increase
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 28
Sex Female
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Obese
Notes for this study:
A randomized, double-blinded and placebo-controlled trial with 28 obese women who received 3.2 g/d of CLA or placebo while performing an 8-week protocol of aerobic exercise. While all participants showed increases in oxygen uptake and decreases in body fat, there was no statistical difference in the CLA group compared to placebo. Thus, 8 weeks CLA supplementation when combined with aerobic exercise did not increase fat loss in obese women.
