 Intense Aerobics Lowers Appetite
The struggle with appetite is a key point in the battle of the bulge. One tool to stay on track is aerobic exercise. A new study shows that a 1 hour period of intense aerobics1 significantly lowers ghrelin, your stomach's hunger signal.

There are many strategies you can employ to help keep appetite in check, including a higher protein diet, following the Five Rules of The Leptin Diet, getting adequate sleep, and a variety of nutrients that help modulate appetite signals – but don't forget about exercise! It not only improves your fitness it helps keep you in a better eating pattern.
