Abstract

Regular exercise is associated with a variety of health benefits. However, the consumption of excess or unhealthy foods may counteract some of these benefits. The effects of the physiological demands of, and psychological experiences in, exercise on subsequent food consumption were explored in this thesis through a series of interventional trials. An interaction of these factors was observed following an acute bout of exercise and 12 weeks of exercise training such that participants who completed sprint interval exercise delivered with psychological need-support consumed less overall food at a post-exercise meal compared with exercise performed in line with current exercise guidelines.
