Want Healthier Eating Habits? Start with a workout
In the latest evidence that it’s worth sticking to your health-focused New Year’s resolutions, researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have found that exercising regularly is linked to better eating habits. The new study, published recently in the International Journal of Obesity, looked at 2,680 young adults who were not exercising regularly or dieting. Scientists found that after exercising for several weeks, formerly sedentary study participants were more likely to choose foods like lean meats, fruits and vegetables, while preferences for fried foods, sodas and other unhealthy options decreased.
