New study has found that after exercising, the women were not opened the appetite that after being at rest. Here we have more details on this finding, which may be another reason for you to start your fitness routine and not give up.
Whenever Fabiola arrives gym opens the refrigerator and takes a portion of what is richer than to eat while relaxing in front of TV. Is the justification? You have spent a lot of energy and calories with exercise and need to replenish forces.
For her, and all Fabiola surely do the same, here’s a new study showing that this statement is not just an excuse to eat something they crave. Well, apparently, the exercise did not open the appetite of a group of women after exercise. Even ate less than when they were at rest.
This is a small study that was published online in the October issue of the magazine Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, whereby only 45 minutes of brisk walking would be sufficient to reduce brain response to food that day regardless of the weight of the person.
To get this information, scientists at Brigham Young University, in the United States, measured brain activity of 18 healthy weight women and 17 obese women, as they watched pictures of meals (and then images of flowers, to serve as “control” or comparison).
Then the researchers took brain measures twice. The first, an hour after women to brisk walk on a treadmill for 45 minutes. The second, a week later, one morning when women did not exercise.
At both time points, participants wrote down what they ate and physical activity they did. The surprise was that women not only showed much less interest in food after exercise, but also ate more that day to “make up” for the calories burned.
While still a need for more data to determine how long the reduction in motivation for food after a workout, especially if people participate in exercise regimes long term, these findings provide new information about how the Exercise may affect how people respond to nutritional signals.
Now you know. If exercise was the excuse to overeat, start looking for another. Because keeping a routine of physical activity not only helps combat excess weight and stay in shape but could also help reduce the amount of food you eat.
And not only that, it also helps you maintain good health: it is good for the heart, diabetes, cholesterol, and even to reduce stress and improve mood. Still looking for more excuses or you are thinking of implementing a new eating routine and exercise?
