Does working out help curb your appetite? This research says yes.
A recent study by Brigham Young University found that women had a decreased desire for food post-workout. The study used an EEG to measure the activity in the portion of the brain associated with “food reward” and after only 45 minutes of activity, the subjects were less likely to feel hungry.
Although there have been conflicting results, another 2012 study conducted by California Polytechnic State University scientists supported the BYU findings. The research, which also measured brain waves, showed that after an hour of exercise, women “Showed significantly reduced drive to eat.”
