Serotonin-Plus Fitness Blog: Skipping Exercise to Prevent Hunger
There is a popular belief among the weight loss community that exercise will cause excessive hunger, making it harder to stick to a diet plan. The opposite is actually true. Researchers have found that aerobic exercise can actually suppress appetite. In addition, exercise also causes a boost in metabolism, helping you to burn more calories throughout the day. Both components of exercise and proper nutrition are essential for weight loss success, so don’t skip out on exercising. Be sure to drink plenty of water after working out to prevent dehydration and false hunger. Many people feel hungry when they are actually dehydrated. Also, eating a small snack high in protein after working out will help hold you over until mealtime.
