Different Exercises Affect Diet Differently

Researchers followed 11 males as they jogged on a treadmill for 1 hr or 90 minutes lifting weights. They found that the treadmill workout altered the production of two different hormones that control appetite while weightlifting only affected one. This suggests that aerobic exercise is a better appetite suppressant than muscle building. Also, runners were less hungry than weightlifters.
