High-Intensity Training Lowers Post-Exercise Appetite

High-Intensity Training Lowers Post-Exercise Appetite

If you’re exercising to drop some weight, blasting through a high-intensity training should considerably lower your post-exercise appetite.

A study from Queensland University of Technology in Australia compared the effects of moderate and high-intensity training on overweight men and found significant appetite differences after one month of 30 to 45-minute training sessions.

High-intensity workout should significantly lower your post-exercise appetite.

Both hunger and a desire to eat decreased after the high-intensity workout (alternating 30-second blitzes on an exercise bike at 90%VO2 max, with 30-second rests in between), but increased after a moderate session (5-minute biking at 45% of VO2 max, with 30-second rests in between).

As a result, when the two groups were offered a limitless buffet, the fat intake of the high-intensity participants lowered by 16%, but went up by 38% among the moderate-intensity trainers.
