Nowadays, obesity has become a problem in the developing country and left the government with huge treatment costs. Due to this, researchers have started large scale studies to find the best exercise protocols for fat loss. Two popular terms in the studies that investigate the effects of exercise training on fat loss are Maximal Fat Oxidation (MFO) and fatmax (exercise intensity which the maximum fat oxidation is occurred). In this study MFO, fatmaxand studies which assess the effect of exercise on fat oxidation are reviewed. Although a lot of research has been done to determine fatmax, the data are inconsistent. However, most researchers believe that the highest amount of lipid oxidation occurs at low to moderate intensities ranging from 35 to 65% of vo2max.
