Study Finds That Vigorous Exercise Before Eating Reduces Appetite

September 13, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
New U.S. research finds that a vigorous exercise session that lasts 45 minutes in the morning actually reduces a person’s appetite. Researchers measured the neural activity of 35 women while they looked at photos of food – after a morning workout and with no workout. The women’s “attentional response” to the food images decreased after the workout session. "This study provides evidence that exercise not only affects energy output, but it also may affect how people respond to food cues," the researchers wrote.
