The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of step box exercise with 12-week nutrition education providing feedback on serum levels of adipocytokines in obese middle-aged women with metabolic syndrome. Participants (%body fat>30, above 3 metabolic syndrome markers) were randomly allocated to step exercise and diet control group (EX+D, n=13) and step exercise and nutrition education providing feedback group (EX+NF, n=13). As weight control program, step exercise (65-75% HRmax) was performed 5 times for 12 weeks. EX+NF was force to save diet notes personally in CAN-pro, and to calculate food intake and daily nutrient intakes. Measuring materials were body composition, metabolic syndrome markers, insulin resistance, serum ghrelin, adiponectin, resistin, leptin and free fat acid (FFA). From the results, positive changes were made in weight, body mass index (BMI), %body fat and waist circumstance, serum resistin levels of metabolic syndrome markers following 12-week weight control program. Diet control and exercise using nutrition education providing feedback that provides well-balanced energies and calories had more positive effects than diet to minimize the problems in decreasing weight. In conclusion, weight control program using nutrition education providing feedback effects positively on control of obesity by causing decrease of appetite, increase of energy consumption and increase of use of fat that cause weight decrease and fat break down.
