Compensatory Health Belief (CBH) model: one may unknowingly increase their calorie intake in the face of an upcoming exercise session. Preliminary correlational results show that participants who consumed more snacks in the impending exercise (IE) condition also had a higher energy balance. In other words, those participants may not have expended enough energy during the ecercise session to account for their increased energy intake. Hence, health professionals should take into account this contradictory relationship between impending exercise and increased food intake when developing solutions to combat obesity. [2nd Award]
