In brief: Exercise
Exercise does temporarily reduce hunger but after several hours your appetite will return and overall increases.
Exercise does help lose weight by expending additional calories but also by reducing anxiety and increasing self-esteem. This makes it easier to resist snacking. Walking a mile burns 0.53 times your weight = calories and running burns 0.75 times your weight = calories.

In brief: Cardio Excercises
By doing excercises that increase your heart rate, also cause an increase in your sympathtic (fight or flight) hormones that cause your appetite to decrease over time.
