Exercise Restores Brain Function Controlling Food Intake

RoseTracker| Brazilian researchers conclude that besides burning calories, exercise restores the functional sensitivity of brain neurons involved in feel full (or being satiated), which in turn contributes to reduced food intake and resulting weight loss. 

In our increasingly obese population, it’s presumed that eating too much ‘bad food’ and our sedentary lifestyle have created failures in the hypothalamus. This part of the brain controls our food intake, specifically insulin and leptin.

Exercise has long been considered a critical factor in weight control. José Barreto C. Carvalheira’s University of Campinas study adds an important new dimension to the connection between physical activity and weight control. via Science Daily
