Good news for early birds! The best way to lose weight is to exercise early in the morning – between 7 and 9am.
After looking at exercise habits, a new study shows those who work out in the morning tend to have slimmer waists, and a lower BMI. Plus, they eat fewer calories overall and have healthier diets.
Maybe working out early encourages healthy habits, or because the day begins with a workout, they’re more focused on health. And those in the study who worked out early spent more time sitting behind a desk than others.
So even if your workday is sedentary, you can still be healthy – just make sure you get moving first thing!
