Exercise and Appetite

In general, exercise neither stimulates nor suppresses appetite. In uncontrolled patients with diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance, by enhancing insulin activity, particularly in the postprandial period, glycemic excursions are reduced, and these excursions can play a role in stimulating appetite. For those with postprandial hyperglycemia, a brisk walk 1-2 h after eating can enhance glycemic control. In fact, exercising in a fasting state may result in increased eating after the workout, thus these individuals would be better advised to pursue the postprandial exercise approach.
