Does Exercise Increase Appetite?
According to a review in the Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, involving more than 30 studies on eating and exercise, exercise does not increase appetite.
This finding is contrary to the popular belief that exercise causes one to eat more and thus has little effect on weight loss.
Researchers found no sign that exercise has any overall effect on what a person eats over the course of a day or on what an overweight person eats over many days.
The article did state, however, that exercise does seem to boost appetite in the long run among people who are already lean.
