Have you ever tried taking a brisk walk, jump roping, bicycling, swimming, or running to curb your appetite?  Some studies suggest that aerobic exercise before meals can help you control your appetite and eat less.  This is possibly due to an increase in body temperature and a change in hormone levels. Also, regular exercise can reduce the appetite by helping to control blood sugar levels, which helps keep you in a steady state associated with fullness. 

For long-term exercise programs, however, appetite may remain unchanged or slightly increase.  But at this level of activity, you’re probably not eating enough fat and calories to make up for the fat and calories you’re burning off!  So if a high-fiber snack or glass of water doesn’t get rid of the munchies, try an exercise activity to help you control your hunger!
