The aim of this study was to compare the effect of high-intensity interval exercise (HIIE) and moderate-intensity continuous exercise (MICE) on sleep characteristics, appetite-related hormones, and eating behaviour. Eleven overweight, inactive men completed 2 consecutive nights of sleep assessments to determine baseline (BASE) sleep stages and arousals recorded by polysomnography (PSG). On separate afternoons (1400-1600 h), participants completed a 30-min exercise bout: either (i) MICE (60… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Greater lactate accumulation following an acute bout of high-intensity exercise in males suppresses acylated ghrelin and appetite post-exercise.
A potential role for lactate in the high-intensity exercise-induced appetite-suppression is found and is supported by a double-blind, placebo controlled, crossover design study.
Changes in Appetite-Dependent Hormones and Body Composition After 8 Weeks of High-Intensity Interval Training and Vitamin D Supplementation in Sedentary Overweight Men
The combination of regular HIIT with vitamin D supplementation has a effect on appetite control and body composition in sedentary overweight men.
Comparing the Effects of Immersed Versus Land-Based High-Intensity Interval Cycling on Energy Intake, Appetite Sensations and Perceived Exertion Among Healthy Men
The present study was the first to observe that immersion did not influence EI after HIIE cycling, but immersion blunted the relationship between session RPE and subsequent energy intake and appetite sensations relative to H IIE on land.
Acute leptin response after high intensity interval and moderate intensity continuous runs
It appears that both exercise modalities result in physical stress which is sufficient to improve short-term leptin sensibility.
Post-exercise energy intake: do the intensity and mode of exercise matter? A systematic review and meta-analysis comparing high-intensity interval with moderate-intensity continuous protocols
The meta-analysis did not show differences between protocols for absolute and relative energy intake; five pairwise comparisons from 28 demonstrated lower absolute energy intake in HIIE or SIE compared to CRTL or MICE.
Effects of High-Intensity Interval Training on Sleep: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
HIIT may be a promising way to improve overall subjective SQ and objective SE and sub-analyses results suggest that ESs were moderated by the type, duration and frequency, as well as the length of the HIIT intervention.
β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate supplementation benefits the effects of resistance training on body fat reduction via increased irisin expression in white adipose tissue
CaHMB supplementation increased the beneficial effects of RT on body fat reduction and was associated with muscular genic expression of IL-6 and FNDC-5 and irisin concentration in WAT, despite the lack of change in protein mass and maximal strength.
An augmented food strategy leads to complete energy compensation during a 15‐day military training expedition in the cold
This study indicates that complete energy compensation can be reached in challenging field conditions when food intake is facilitated, offering some guidelines to limit energy deficit during operational missions.

Although high-intensity exercises promoted a little more pronounced effects in the direction of suppressing the appetite, no differences were observed in REI, demonstrating that these modifications were not sufficient to affect energy intake.
Appetite, food intake and gut hormone responses to intense aerobic exercise of different duration.
In conclusion, high-intensity aerobic cycling lasting up to 45 min did not suppress subjective appetite or affect absolute food intake, but did reduce relative energy intake, in well-trained endurance athletes.
The 24-h Energy Intake of Obese Adolescents Is Spontaneously Reduced after Intensive Exercise: A Randomized Controlled Trial in Calorimetric Chambers
In obese adolescent boys, HIE has a beneficial impact on 24-h energy balance, mainly due to the spontaneous decrease in energy intake during lunch and dinner following the exercise bout.
High-intensity intermittent exercise attenuates ad-libitum energy intake
High-intensity intermittent exercise suppresses subsequent ad-libitum energy intake in overweight inactive men and was found to be well tolerated in an overweight population.
Effects of exercise intensity and duration on nocturnal heart rate variability and sleep quality
Investigation of the effects of exercise intensity and duration on nocturnal HR, HRV, HR, and HRV-based relaxation, as well as on actigraphic and subjective sleep quality suggests that increased exerciseintensity and/or duration cause delayed recovery ofnocturnal cardiac autonomic modulation.
Energy intake and appetite-related hormones following acute aerobic and resistance exercise.
The differential response of appetite-regulating hormones to AER and RES does not appear to influence energy intake in the postexercise meal, but given the greater energy expenditure associated with AER compared with RES, AER modes of exercise may be preferable for achieving short-term negative energy balance.
The effects of partial sleep restriction and altered sleep timing on appetite and food reward
Influence of resistance and aerobic exercise on hunger, circulating levels of acylated ghrelin, and peptide YY in healthy males.
The findings suggest ghrelin and PYY may regulate appetite during and after exercise, but further research is required to establish whether exercise-induced changes in ghrel in and peptide YY influence subsequent food intake.
Short sleep duration, glucose dysregulation and hormonal regulation of appetite in men and women.
The data suggest that, in the context of negative energy balance, short sleep does not lead to a state of increased insulin resistance, but may predispose to overeating via separate mechanisms in men and women.
