At Notre Dame, the number one reason students seek nutritional counseling is for weight loss. On occasion I’ll encounter a client who is reluctant to engage in increased activity/exercise out of fear of stimulating their appetite. They are worried if they exercise longer or harder, their appetites will be increased, therefore making weight loss even harder. So, is there truth in that? How much does exercise impact our appetites, and ultimately our weight loss goals?

Chief among them are health benefits, environmental and sustainability concerns, and concerns about the treatment of animals. All these are great reasons.
