Effect of short-duration exercise at the VeT on subjective appetite scores. 1Average appetite (a) desire to eat (b) hunger (c) fullness (d) PFC (e) at 15, 30, and 45 min during short-duration sessions. 2SDRT = short-duration rest, SDEX = short-duration exercise, PFC = prospective food consumption. 3Change from baseline appetite scores increased with time for average appetite (p = 0.0005), desire to eat (p = 0.011), hunger (p = 0.0027), and PFC (p = 0.0047), and subjective fullness decreased (p < 0.0001). SDEX attenuated the increase in average appetite (p = 0.027), desire to eat (p = 0.049), and hunger (p = 0.0072) when compared with SDRT, but did not affect fullness (p = 0.98) or PFC (p = 0.15). Sex was not a factor on change from baseline average appetite (p = 0.11), desire to eat (p = 0.41), hunger (p = 0.46), fullness (p = 0.81), or PFC (p = 0.22). However, there was a significant treatment × sex interaction on PFC (p = 0.013). 4Test meal began at 45 min.
