In brief: Yes
Excessive exercising can decrease appetite immediately after exercise.
However, after a period of rest and cooldown generally the appetite will increase. Consumption is not necessarily related because it can be controlled by the person in question. However, when energy stores are depleted, hormones are activated which increase appetite.
