The effects of physical activity

  • Scientific studies reveal that a few people will lose a great deal of body fat when they start exercising. Others will gain, and most will drop a few pounds.
  • Studies show that most types of exercise increase appetite in most people, tempting us to replace calories and preventing potential fat loss.
  • Other evidence suggests that physical fitness may affect people's everyday responses to food. Some past studies show active people of normal weight displayed less interest in high-fat, calorie-dense foods. They may still enjoy the same food, but will not actively seek it out.
