The effect of aerobic exercise and fish oil supplements on plasma lipid parameters was investigated in the hamster. The hamsters were fed a basal hypercholesterolemio purified diet (0.1% cholesterol, 15% fat) to elicit an elevated lipid response. Fifty-six hypercholesterolemic hamsters were divided into four groups: control, swimming (trained up to one hour every other day), daily fish oil supplementation (.35g/kg/day omega—3), and a swimming/fish oil co~bination. . The effect of these treatments on plasma TC, TG and pooled samples of plasma HDL-C, HDL2—C, LDL-C and VLDL—C was studied over 12 weeks. All hamsters had a significant increase in body weight. Feed intakes increased at 6 weeks and then declined over the second 6 weeks, but remained above the beginning levels.
