Good news about ex­er­cise and moth­er­hood.

Kick­box­ing also kicks hunger to the curb, re­veal Bri­tish sci­en­tists in Medicine & Sci­ence in Sports and Ex­er­cise. That’s a good rea­son to stop count­ing calo­ries and start count­ing on the min­utes of your work­out — a re­lief to busy moms who don’t have the time to ex­am­ine ev­ery la­bel or weigh ev­ery gram of food. The find­ings are based on an ex­am­i­na­tion of women’s hor­monal, psy­cho­log­i­cal and be­hav­ioral re­sponses to con­trol­ling calo­ries through ex­er­cise and food re­stric­tion for nine hours. Those who re­stricted their food were hun­grier and ate more from a buf­fet, while those who went on a 90-minute tread­mill run were more sa­ti­ated and ate less.
