A study says high-intensity workouts could help men quell hunger pangs, at least for a short time.

Researchers say they found that overweight men ate about 200 fewer calories following a vigorous workout.

High-intensity exercise may be tied to appetite suppression and changes in hormones that regulate hunger and fullness, researchers believe.

The study is published in the International Journal of Obesity.
