For the study, a team of researchers studied male and female rats splitting them into two mixed-sex groups. The first group had access to a running wheel (the exercise group), the second group did not (sedentary group). Both groups had access to various types of diets.

In the end of the experiment, the scientists noted that exercising female rats continued to choose high-fat diet over other two diets, and exercising male rats reduces their intake of the high-fat diet and increased their intake of the high-sucrose and high-cornstarch diets.

The team concludes: “The significant sex differences in response to physical activity observed through both behavioral and physiological measures suggest potential motivational or metabolic difference between males and females.”
