Kick Your Cravings - FIT Human Performance

Kick Your Cravings


February 3, 2013

Did you know that a daily dose of cardio doesn’t just help blast off fat, it may  also help rein in your appetite. That’s right, research in Medicine & Science & Exercise found that women who viewed pictures of food right after a 45-minute morning cardio work-out were less hungry (based on brain-wave measurements) than when they viewed the photos on rest days. So contrary to what many believe, exercise doesn’t necessarily make us hungrier. “Our attention to food-related information changes immediately following exercise” says Michael Larson, PhD, a study author and assistant professor at  Brigham Young University. Why? Working out may cause fluctuations in hunger hormones, decreasing the appetite-stimulating ghrelin and increasing the feel-full hormone PYY. Simply put, if you want to curb calorie, lace up your sneakers and head on over to FIT for a session of cardio.

In good health,
