  • Increase exercise by limiting mealtimes

    Has anyone else heard of a study that found that limiting mealtimes may actually help to increase exercise motivation? The study found that limiting access to food increased level of the hormone, ghrelin, which may increase motivation to exercise. It seems like an interesting finding, the only issue is that it was only conducted on mice. Still, it's a fascinating read for anyone who is interested and who finds exercise is with what they struggle when it comes to losing weight. https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...1019154000.htm

    So do they mean eating less at mealtimes, like much smaller meals, helps to boost exercise? Wouldn't that just end up making you more hungry later so you're more likely to blow your calorie limit? This seems to be an odd study and I think I would take it more seriously if they say the same effect in humans.

      Yeah, that's what I was kind of wondering. I mean, even if it does make you feel more inclined to exercise, what happens after? Once you've eaten less and burned off calories, wouldn't you be starving and more prone to eating. Also, I do agree about human studies. I never really get excited about any study until it's done with humans. Still, I thought it was an interesting finding. Hopefully something good comes from it.

        Maybe it will, who knows. :) I just just see this as being problematic because I feel like people will eat less at a meal, exercise, but then snack more because they're hungry from burning calories. Definitely a weird study. But like you said...who knows? Maybe they're on to something!
