Abstract

Exercise training increases the thermogenic capacity of white adipose tissue (WAT), an effect known as "browning" of the WAT. Here, we discuss how this affects whole-body energy homeostasis. We put forth the hypothesis that browning of the subcutaneous WAT allows the organism to adjust its metabolic rate according to energy availability while coping with increased heat production through exercise.
