Appetite Control For Active & Inactive People

Compared to inactive people, active individuals appear to have an advantage for controlling caloric intake after a meal. A study published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism looks into the mechanisms behind this trend.

On separate occasions, researchers analyzed hunger hormones in healthy, normal weight subjects after a 570 calorie breakfast and a 205 calorie breakfast. Nine subjects were regularly active and 7 were inactive. They found that being active helps moderate the post-meal response of insulin and certain hunger hormones.
