Curb Your Hunger With Running

Try boosting the intensity of your workout to fight hunger and stay on target.

Intense aerobic exercise, like jogging, may suppress your appetite for up to three hours by reducing levels of hunger hormones produced in your tummy.

This useful finding comes from a British study that also credited weight training with hunger-busting power.

So the next time hunger pangs make it hard for you to stick with your diet, try boosting the intensity of your workouts, researchers say. You may find that your cravings fade.
