"If you exercise vigorously multiple times each day, your metabolism remains elevated for a few hours without returning to the pre-exercise level," explains the study's lead author, Thomas Altena, Ed.D., an assistant professor at Missouri State University.

Based on the results of the research, the intermittent approach would probably be best for most Americans at lowering fat in the bloodstream," claimed Thomas Altena, an assistant professor at the Southwest Missouri State University.
Thomas also noted that exercising before eating is crucial for fat reduction as muscle contraction during the exercise process stimulates a fat-clearing enzyme in the muscle.
Researchers also discovered enzyme activity peaking about 12 hours after a particular exercise session. They concluded that those who eat hefty breakfasts could benefit more from exercise in the evening, while those who eat large dinners could benefit more from exercise in the morning.
Thomas, however, said that the effect of exercise on fat clearing does not last for more than 24 hours.
Intermittent exercise reduces fat that harms heart - September 7, 2004, 7 Sept 2004 [cached]
Thomas, who co-authored the study with Thomas Altena, an assistant professor of health and physical education at Southwest Missouri State University, cautioned against over-interpreting the results: Triglyceride level "is just one of hundreds of markers" of heart disease.People who have the time and dedication for continuous workouts should continue to do them, he advised."This (study) tells us that intermittent exercise is also okay.It takes away one more excuse for not exercising."
Prior research has shown that the peak clearance of fat from the arteries occurs 12 hours after exercise and that the effect from one workout lasts for about 24 hours.
"So if you eat at 7 p.m. and work out at 9 p.m., you are not clearing fat from that meal," Thomas said.

Thomas Altena, an exercise physiologist at the University of Missouri-Columbia, had to say: " the physiological responses associated with elliptical exercises were nearly identical to treadmill exercises". He went on to conclude that "both exercise machines are effective for increasing the amount of calories burned and for producing cardio respiratory health and training benefits..."
