What is the research all about?

Dr David Stensel and his team at the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine East Midlands (NCSEM-EM) researched on female’s behavioural, hormonal and psychological responses to calorie management via exercise and dieting for a period of 9 hours.

Where a calorie shortage was attained by dieting, it was seem that levels of ghrelin which is the hunger hormone increased among the participants. Not only this, lower levels of peptide YY which is the hunger repressing hormone was also encountered.

Also, they consumed approximately a third more at a food gathering in comparison with another function when the same calorie shortage was created through exercise. Here, it was seen that the participants consumed an average of 944 calories adhering to diet control as opposed to 660 calories with exercise.

The contradictions

The results challenge previous researches that propose exercise tends to make people women particularly women to consume more food.

This new study also revealed that the response of the hormones peptide YY as well as ghrelin to exercise is similar for both male and female population.

Dr Stensel opined that the findings offer an important contribution exercise and diet discussion. The study has shown that exercise helps in curing your hunger and actually doesn’t encourage you to eat more food.

Dr Stensel further explained that the subsequent step is to observe whether this advantage carries on past the first day of exercise.

The results track a couple of studies that are designed to recognize whether appetite responses differ among males and females or not.

In the initial study, calorie consumptio was limited via exercise or diet. Then, the appetite responses were calculated over a course of 9 hours. The same participants took part in both segments of the research.

The second research directly contrasted food intake responses, appetite perception and appetite perception to exercise among males and females.
