Most exercisers tend to focus on either aerobic training or resistance training to accomplish their fitness goals. In reality, according to the Journal of Sports and Science and Medicine people who do both types of activities also end up eating less than those who did one or the other. It appears the combination of both cardio and weight training causes a shift in hormones that appears to control appetite as well. By pairing 30 minutes of cardio with weight training three times a week appears to be the best of both worlds. Make sure you do enough exercises to target each major muscle group and complete at least one set of eight to 12 repetition of each movement for best results.
