  Purpose
The investigators hypothesize exercise increases short term appetite and food intake, and interferes with satiety and satiations to a preload in normal weight, overweight and obese boys.

Condition Intervention
Obesity Prevention Other: Dietary Supplement: water with noncalorie sweetener Other: Activity: With noncalorie sweetener or glucose

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Single (Participant)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Effect of Activity at the Ventilation Threshold on Appetite and Food Intake After a Glucose Drink in Normal Weight, Overweight and Obese Boys

Further study details as provided by University of Toronto:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • food intake (kcal) [ Time Frame: at 30-35 min after the treatment ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Subjective appetite [ Time Frame: 0-80 min ]

Enrollment: 35
Study Start Date: October 2008
Study Completion Date: September 2009
Primary Completion Date: September 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Sedentary activity, noncaloric beverage Other: Dietary Supplement: water with noncalorie sweetener
Experimental: Sedentary activity, glucose beverage Other: Dietary Supplement: water with noncalorie sweetener
Experimental: Exercise activity, noncaloric beverage Other: Activity: With noncalorie sweetener or glucose
Experimental: Exercise activity, glucose beverage Other: Activity: With noncalorie sweetener or glucose

Detailed Description:
The effect of exercise (EXR) on short-term food intake (FI) and subjective appetite was investigated in normal weight (NW), overweight (OW) and obese (OB) boys were randomized into 4 treatments. Each boy consumed either a non-caloric sweetened control (CON) or GLU drink after either exercise (EXR) or sedentary activity. Subjects exercised at their ventilation threshold (VeT).
