Active people eat more healthily...apparently

A study by the University of Leeds, and recently presented at the recent British Association of Sport & Exercise Sciences Annual Conference, showed that people who engage in regular exercise are more likely to regulate their fat intake and avoid high-risk diet. 

The findings show that obese people initially demonstrated a control of eating which was based on the weight of food eaten, not the amount of calories contained in that food. During a 12 week supervised exercise programme, however, the obese individuals demonstrated a progressive reduction in self-selected high fat food. 
 
Exercise therefore seems to have a beneficial effect on dietary behaviour by helping people reduce the intake of high risk, bodyweight-increasing foods.When people engage in regular exercise fat intake is better regulated and consequently these people move towards a healthier diet.
