Your Spin Class Might Be Causing Your Sugar Cravings

Sorry, everyone, but it looks like eating right and exercising aren't quite enough. According to a study by the Cornell Food and Brand Lab, you have to actually enjoy your exercise for it to curb those cravings. Dread your 6 a.m. date with the treadmill and you'll actually consume more desserts and snacks than those gym rats who genuinely love being active.

As it turns out, mom was right all along —— attitude does matter. In the study, groups of people were led on a walk around a lake. The only difference: the point of the walk. One group was told it was a scenic walk while the other was told it was for exercise. This was conducted twice. After the first walk, the groups were given lunch and allowed to serve themselves chocolate pudding; after the second, they were allowed to serve themselves a snack of M&M's. The people who considered the walk a workout served themselves a bigger sugary reward. Significantly bigger. They actually ended up eating over twice as many M&M's as the happy scenic walkers.

Just can't get into the kickboxing class? You now have an excuse to ditch it. Just find a workout you enjoy instead.
