Objective To compare the effects of aerobic training (AT) with aerobic plus resistance training (AT + RT) in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) obese adolescents. Design Long-term interdisciplinary weight-loss therapy (1 year of clinical, nutritional, psychological, and exerciserelated intervention). Participants Fifty-eight postpubertal obese adolescents were randomized to AT or AT + RT according to NAFLD diagnosis. Adipokine and neuropeptide concentrations were measured by enzyme-linked
