Exercise Can Make You Gain Weight? Yes, Here's Why!

A study found exercise can actually make you gain weight if you're not careful, because we treat ourselves by eating more after a workout.

Here's your newest excuse for not working out: A new study found exercise can actually make some people GAIN weight. And no, it's not from packing on more muscle . . .

A team of researchers in England monitored40people after they started working out three days a week. And the average person ate more after a workout . . . because they felt like they DESERVED it.


The average person upped their portion size by24% after a workout, or about150calories. And not all of them burned that many calories in their workout. So in the end, they actually gained a little weight.

But with that said, they also exercised and got their heart rate going. So obviously it's still good to exercise. Just be careful about rewarding yourself too much.
