We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Generally speaking, good daily workouts reduce appetite and lead to better food choices. That does not prove a cause and effect relationship, though, because people who get on the fitness train focus on whatever their fitness needs are.
For example, people who do strength training daily commonly eat everything in sight whether they want it or not, and try to gain weight, both fat and muscle. For those interested in general fitness, though, not so much.
Didn't read actual paper as it's behind a paywall, but the NYT article says the study used exercise machines and self-reported (and therefore unknown) eating habits. I don't think there is anything useful to be gleaned from the paper if those were the methods.
Oversimplified, but strength training involves the actual building of muscle tissue, whereas cardio work is more fine-tuning chemical pathways, using what already exists in the body. Naturally, strength athletes are going to want to, and need to, eat more. Weight gain/loss is always a combination of fat and muscle. Can't lose/gain one without losing/gaining the other.
I couldn't read the NY article. From my experience. I am trying to go carnivore, not 100% meat but mostly. I have a slice of sourdough and an orange after I eat my supper protein. I eat mainly eggs and meat. I have noticed that my cravings for carbs are way down and have absolutely no craving for sweets. I think it is because I am satiated from all the protein. I try to get at least 150g of protein per day. For me, it isn't the exercise that I do but the food that I eat that has changed my eating habits and cravings.
