The purpose of this study is to compare exercise performance and substrate utilization in fasted and non-fasted, healthy college students during submaximal exercise on the leg ergometer. It was hypothesized that consuming a meal prior to submaximal exercise will yield a higher RER value compared to fasting at least three hours prior to the start of exercise.
