Walk away your snack cravings

Have your say

PEOPLE prone to frequent snacking on chocolate while at work can halve the amount they scoff by walking for just 15 minutes, research has claimed.

The study showed that workers eat only half as much chocolate as they normally would after this short burst of physical activity.

The research, published in the journal Appetite, said it highlighted the health benefits of workers being able to get away from their desks for a short time during the working day.

Professor Adrian Taylor, who led the study at the University of Exeter, said: “People often find it difficult to cut down on their daily treats but this study shows that by taking a short walk, they are able to regulate their intake by half.”
