- PINES Ten Questions, Ten Experts: Diet, Exercise & Appetite: Over the past decade, there has been a renewed interest in the role that exercise (intensity, duration, mode) has on subjective appetite, appetite regulatory hormones, and energy intake. The effect exercise may have on these factors may also depend on sex, level of fitness, body size and composition and age. To complicate the issue, the diet an active individual self-selects (post-exercise and typical diet, e.g. level of energy density) can also impact appetite and total energy consumed, which can ultimately impact body size. In this session, 10 experts will provide a summary of latest research on this topic.
