The Effects of Exercise on Hunger and Satiety Hormone Concentrations Over a 36-hour Fast
Exercise, Hormones, Ghrelin, GLP-1, and Insulin
Food intake and metabolism are often key indicators for the onset of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer (1). Food intake is largely regulated by hormones that signal satiety and hunger (2). Current literature has shown that exercise reduces food seeking behaviors. (3) These hormones include ghrelin, which stimulates food intake, and GLP-1, leptin, PP, and PYY, which all create a satiation effect and reduce food seeking behaviors. We hypothesized that a bout of intense exercise at the beginning of a 36-hour fast would reduce the secretions of hunger hormone ghrelin and increase the concentration of satiety hormones GLP-1, PP, PYY and leptin.
