Rigorous workouts `curb appetites`
New York: High intensity exercise may suppress your appetite shortly afterward, a new study has revealed.
The researchers found that after doing a vigorous workout, overweight men ate about 200 fewer calories than after rest, the New York Daily News reported.
Some studies have shown that high intensity exercise is linked to appetite suppression and changes in hormones that regulate hunger and fullness, but the new research found different effects on those hormones among the various exercise regimens.
In the study, which was conducted by University of Western Australia, 17 overweight men participated in four 30-minute exercise sessions: one in which they only rested and three involving stationary cycling at either moderate, high or very high intensity.
It was found that men ate fewer calories after the high and very high intensity workouts compared to the times when they rested.
The participants also ate less after the very high intensity workout than after the moderate exercise.
The men also reported eating fewer calories on the day following the highest intensity workout than they did on the days following the other exercise sessions.
The study was published in the International Journal of Obesity.
