Abstract : Reports that the severity of the post-exercise ketosis induced by walking is decreased by a warm environment and a negative water balance, acting independently, were investigated. Eight young men walked ten miles on a treadmill and rested thereafter for six hours without eating. The basal and recovery temperatures were keptAT 25 C. In three different walks the temperatures were kept at 8, 25, and 8 C respectively. Ketosis was generally greater after the 'cool walks' than after the 'warm walk.' After moderate prolonged exercise there is a general catabolic reaction that persists for hours, as judged by the proportion of energy derived from protein, carbohydrate and fat; by the ketone bodies, nonesterified fatty acids, glucose and lactate in the plasma; and by the ketone bodies, titratable acidity and total nitrogen in the urine.
