Exercise can make it easier to eat healthy
Washington: The tendency towards a healthy diet and the right amount of physical exercise are interlinked and often go hand in hand, a new study has suggested.
According to researchers from Harvard University, an increase in physical activity is linked to an improvement in diet quality.
“Understanding the interaction between exercise and a healthy diet could improve preventative and therapeutic measures against obesity by strengthening current approaches and treatments,” Miguel Alonso Alonso, a researcher at Harvard University, said.
The researchers also found that exercise also brings benefits such as an increase in sensitivity to physiological signs of fullness. This not only means that appetite can be controlled better but it also modifies hedonic responses to food stimuli.
“Physical exercise seems to encourage a healthy diet. In fact, when exercise is added to a weight-loss diet, treatment of obesity is more successful and the diet is adhered to in the long run,” Alonso Alonso said.
