    Abstract

    The age-related decline in muscle function is aggravated by a high-fat diet (HFD) induced increase in fat mass. The hypothesis is that a HFD leads to a faster accumulation of intramyocellular lipids (IMCL) and an earlier onset of muscle dysfunction in old than in young-adult individuals. The IMCL accumulation is attenuated in young-adult organisms by an elevated oxidative capacity. Methionine restriction enhances mitochondrial biogenesis and is promising to combat obesity across the ages.
