Abstract: 

Introduction: Exercise is associated with an increase in cortisol-the most important hormone in fat metabolism. Cortisol levels vary during a day. This study was conducted in view of the lack of any documents on cortisol levels in endurance athletics in Iran.

Methods: In a cross-sectional study, 25 male endurance runners age 18-25 years and, 25 non-athlete men were selected. The cortisole and TG levels were analyzed using ELISA in the morning and evening. T-test was used for statistical analysis and P<0.05 was considered as significant.

Results: The cortisol level in athletes was 25±1.1 mg/dl in the morning and 12±1.5 mg/dl in the evening. The morning and evening cortisol levels in the control group were 11± 2.7mg/dl and 3± 1.4mg/dl, respectively. To levels in Athletes-in the Morning and evening were 80± 6mg/dl and 162± 12mg/dl, respectively. The-morning and afternoon to levels in the control group were 150± 25mg/dl and 200± 34mg/dl, respectively. All of the differences were statistically significant.

Conclusions: Fat burning is higher in endurance athletes including endurance runners because of higher levels of cortisol in the mornings than evenings.
