Effect of long-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, 45, 60, and 75 min during long-duration sessions. 2LDRT = long-duration rest, LDEX = long-duration exercise, PFC = prospective food consumption. 3 Change from baseline average appetite (p < 0.0001), desire to eat (p < 0.0001), hunger (p < 0.0001), and PFC (p < 0.0001) increased with time, and fullness decreased (p < 0.001). LDEX stimulated a greater rate of increase in average appetite (p = 0.0045), desire to eat (p = 0.047), and hunger (p < 0.0001) compared with LDRT, however there was no effect on fullness (p = 0.19) or PFC (p = 0.18). Sex was not a factor on change from baseline average appetite (p = 0.22), desire to eat (p = 0.15), hunger (p = 0.80), fullness (p = 0.17), or PFC (p = 0.17). 4Test meal began at 75 min.
