Forty obese men were divided randomly into four groups of ten people, includes: training (n=10), diet (n=10), training along with diet (n=10), and controls (n=10). Blood samples, height, weight and thickness of subcutaneous fat measured, before, after 4 weeks and at the end of 8 weeks. For the data analyze, the repeated measures ANOVA test was used. The significance level in all tests was (p<0.05. This research showed that, 8 weeks of regular exercise and intervention in diet separately and combinational, caused impressive decreasing in amount of weight and body fat percentage of subjects in comparison with control group. Also 8 weeks of exercise and intervention in diet separately and combinational could decrease the risk of cardiovascular factors in obese men. Overall, the research findings are significant that the aerobic trainings with intervention in diet (combinational) caused the greatest decrease in amount of weight and body fat percentage of subjects and the risk of cardiovascular factors, improved very much, in comparison with using separately.
