    People do an astonishing number of things every day to strain, weaken, and train their back to stay in uncomfortable posture.

    Think of your next exercise workout as a ‘fun run’ or as a well-deserved break, and you’ll eat less afterward. But think of it as exercise or as a workout and you’ll later eat more dessert and snacks to reward yourself.

    That’s the conclusion of two new studies from Cornell University. the studies involved adults who were led on a 2 km walk around a small lake and were either told it was going to be an exercise walk or a scenic walk.

    In the second study, 46 adults were given mid-afternoon snacks after their walk. Those thinking they taken an exercise walk ate 206 more calories …

    Do whatever you can to make your workout fun. Play music, watch a video, or simply be grateful that you're working out instead of working in the office. Anything that brings a smile is likely to get you to eat less.
