The acute effect of exercise on appetite

Project Description

This project can be offered either on a full-time or a part-time basis. Please email the prospective supervisor for more details.

I am interested in energy balance and the reasons why exercise interventions on overweight participants often don’t yield the expected weight loss. Some other aspect of the energy balance equation must change. Perhaps there is compensation in what they eat, either consciously (“I’ve earned this cake as I’ve just jogged for 45 minutes”), or perhaps appetite changes because of hormonal or homeostatic reasons.

I’m looking for someone with the relevant skills in this area.
