Another Exercise Benefit
A friend shared a link to this article in the NY Times about exercise and caloric intake.
The study monitored the production of ghrelin, a hormone related to hunger and appetite. Ghrelin levels increase with exercise which logically should lead to increased appetite and consumption. What the study indicates, however, is that exercise also increased the level of other hormones which actually fooled the participants into thinking they were fuller and they didn’t eat as much! So much we don’t know about the amazing human body.
So, put down that donut and take a brisk walk instead – maybe you’ll feel fuller!
