Measuring food intake using standard buffet meals can be complicated by sensory and external cues which can alter energy intake. The present study was designed to examine the effects of acute exercise on non-metabolic factors related to appetite and food intake using a computer-based assessment. Twenty-seven men and women participated in two sessions in random order: 60-min walking on the treadmill (exercise trial; EX) or seated rest (control trial; CON). Subjective hunger and fullness, food liking, food utility, and ideal portion size were assessed before and immediately after exercise or rest, and hourly for 2h. The findings showed that an acute bout of moderate intensity exercise had an anorexigenic effect; characterised by diminished hunger (-17.4%, p=0.004) and lower prospective ideal portion size (-7.7%, p=0.003) compared to no exercise. This novel, computer-based assessment, is a useful alternative to buffet meals setting and allows for the determination of non-metabolic factors associated with feeding behaviour in relation to exercise.
