Fun or Exercise?

Brian Wansink, Cornell University professor and author of “Mindless Eating” and co-author of “Slim by Design” recently conducted a study to evaluate how people eat following exercise, depending on how the exercise was “framed.” When framed as “fun,” participants consumed less food afterward, compared to those who were told that they were doing a “workout.” Professor Wansink believes this could explain why some people gain weight once they begin an exercise program.
