Active Comparator: Prolonged Sitting
Participants sat on a chair during the trial.
Behavioral: Prolonged Sitting
After consuming 1st meal, participants sat on a chair for 180 min. After 180 min, the 2nd meal was provided. After finishing the 2nd meal, participants sat on a chair for another 120 min.
Experimental: Breaking Sitting
Participants walked regularly during the trial.
Behavioral: Breaking Sitting
After consuming 1st meal, participants walked 2 min on a treadmill every 20 minutes for the following 180 min. For the remainder of the time participants sat on the chair. After 180 min, the 2nd meal was provided. After finishing the 2nd meal, participants continued 2 min of walking every 20 min for the following 120 min.
Primary Outcome Measures :
- Incremental area under curve (iAUC) for insulin [ Time Frame: 330 minutes ]
Secondary Outcome Measures :
- Changes in gene expression in the adipose tissue [ Time Frame: Before the 1st meal and 120 min after the 2nd meal (330 minutes). ]
- Changes in insulin, glucose, TAG and NEFA in blood [ Time Frame: 330 minutes ]
- Changes in serum Interleukin-6 (IL-6), leptin and adiponectin [ Time Frame: 330 minutes ]
- Changes in Interleukin-6 (IL-6), leptin and adiponectin protein secretion from adipose tissue explants [ Time Frame: Before the 1st meal and 120 min after the 2nd meal (330 minutes). ]
