Cardio & Appetite: Does Cardio Make You Fat?
By Fredrik Tonstad Vårvik
Does endurance-training (cardio) increase or decrease your appetite? What about resistance training?
Some might say that exercise increases appetite, while others say the opposite. The plain truth is that since exercise burns calories, you should think appetite increases to make up for those burned calories. For those who want to lose weight, that might come as a shock. What sounds logical is not always true. The media have done a great job of convincing the public that exercise increases your appetite and that you end up eating more and getting fat.
