A study presented at the American Diabetes Association meeting revealed that obese teen girls who followed either an aerobic-exercise or resistance-training program for three months attained significant reductions in body weight and total fat levels compared with the sedentary control group. Researchers also found that aerobic exercise was associated with a 19% decrease in visceral fats, a 43% drop in lipid fats and a 23% improvement in insulin sensitivity compared with the control group.
