If you're too lazy to read it, the summary is this: researchers have found that those of us who exercise regularly tend to "make up" for it by being lazier the rest of the day. It also states that they're finding those of us who exercise tend to eat more in general because exercise stimulates hunger. Granted, we would need more calories than someone who didn't exercise but this is saying that we go above and beyond what we actually need to be eating.
This has given me some food for thought because as much as I like to go hard and do intense workouts, I find that instead of invigorating me, it tends to wipe me out for the rest of the day. I have often wondered what the point is of doing a crazy step video or an intense HIIT session if I'm practically comatose the rest of the day.
