Oxygen uptake during the protocol from the time of ingestion. (a). Respiratory exchange ratio (RER) during the protocol from the time of ingestion (b). Oxygen uptake at rest only; measured at -30 min and 30 min (c). Inset c represents the change in resting VO2. RER at rest only measured at -30 min and 30 min (d). Inset d represents the change in resting RER. * Significantly different (P < 0.05) from the same value at rest or than the other condition (inset). ↓ Ingestion of capsinoids/placebo at 0 min. Values are means ± SD (n = 12).
