How to Curb Your Appetite All Afternoon
Time your workout right and you might willingly skip dessert, according to a recent study at San Diego State University. When cyclists rode for 50 minutes at a moderate intensity (60 percent of their VO2 max) two hours after a meal, they had lower appetites for the next several hours than when they biked on an empty stomach and then ate.
When possible, work out two hours after breakfast or lunch. Think of it as a natural appetite suppressant without the side effects.
