Background: The present study conducted to evaluate the effect of moderate- intensity aerobic exercise on metabolic syndrome risk factors and acylated ghrelin in middle- age women.

Methods: In a quasi-experimental design, twenty four middle-age women that voluntarily participated in this research assigned into two control (n=12) and aerobic training (n=12) groups. Training group was participated in an aerobic exercise program that including walking and jogging with 60-70% HRR intensity for 8 weeks (three times per week). Status appetite of subjects and venous blood samples were collected before and after training program. Data were analyzed by paired t-test and repeated-measures ANCOVA tests.

Results: The results indicated that all indicators of the metabolic risk factors, MetS Z scores, the amount of carbohydrate, protein, fat and total calorie diet with hunger and satiety (p=0/001) and acylated ghrelin plasma concentrations (p=0/002) significantly changed in the training group, but , these parameters remained unchanged in the control group (P>0.05).

Conclusion: Hence, according to the results of this study it can be said that moderate-intensity aerobic exercise can improve appetite and metabolic syndrome risk factors in middle-aged women. However further research is necessary to understand the molecular mechanisms involved.
