Can exercise make us less hungry?

Researchers in SSEHS are recruiting volunteers for a study investigating whether exercise can make us less hungry as well as helping to burn fat.

As part of the new INTAKE study, scientists plan to monitor how key appetite regulating hormones are influenced by a single bout of moderate intensity exercise.

Researchers are looking for healthy, non-smoking volunteers aged 18 to 50 for the four-part study which will be conducted at either the University or the Leicester Diabetes Centre (part of Leicester General Hospital).

Participants will need to be inactive or moderately active, with a BMI of less than 40.
