Single Bouts of Exercise Do Not Increase Appetite

Some weight-control experts caution dieters that physical activity has limited effects on weight control because it increases appetite and food intake. Catia Martins from Norway, and colleagues, found that neither intense nor continuous exercise influence appetite, food intake or hormones controlling appetite. The researchers studied overweight and obese people who performed single bouts of moderate- to vigorous-intensity exercise performed three hours before lunch. All forms of exercise reduced insulin, but none had any effect on lunchtime feeding behaviors. In the short run, vigorous- or moderate-intensity exercise does not increase appetite.
