And if you think you are getting enough exercise you probably are. Or something like that.

Overcoming Bias has this post on "Mind-Set Matters: Exercise and the Placebo Effect" by Harvard psychologists Alia J. Crum and Ellen J. Langer.

If the result was no placebo effect I wonder if it would be publishable.

It's interesting that the subjects reported no change in behavior. It's all in their head.
