Workout, Eat Lots

Have you ever noticed, you go to the gym, finish up a good workout, and like a shot—BOOM—you’re hungry like a wolf! Happens to me all the time. After I exercise I go home and ravage my fruit and veggie stockpiles. And apparently, this type of behavior isn't all that weird. Diet-Blog’s got a post all about it:
Researchers took 6 men and 6 women through the following steps.
  1. Ate the same breakfast.
  2. Wait for an hour.
  3. One group did 60 minutes of stationary cycling (at 65% max heart rate). The other group did nothing.
  4. Wait for an hour.
  5. Everyone enjoyed an all-you-can-eat buffet.
The Results
The exercising group consumed 913 Calories at the buffet. The non-exercising group ate 762 Calories. However, during exercise, the first group burned 492 Calories compared to 197 Calories.
