The University of Bath suggests daily exercising counteracts some of the profound negative physiological effects that occur with binge eating—a.k.a. the holidays. So even though you’re taking in way more calories than usual, exercising can help stop the blood sugar from rising and prevent unhealthy metabolic changes and unhealthy diet balance. In the study, the group that exercised showed no unhealthy changes from increasing their calorie consumption by 75% but those who didn’t exercise did show negative changes even with only increasing their consumption by half. So if you wanna indulge in the fruit cake and sweet potato pie you better get to sweating.
