Is Morning or Evening Exercise Better?

By    |   Friday, 29 May 2015 09:37 AM

Question: For years, I’ve gone to the gym almost every day, usually after work. But about a month ago, my job situation changed and I’ve had to work out in the morning. Interestingly, I’ve lost a couple pounds, but haven’t changed my diet or my cardio or weight-lifting routine. Could the change in when I work out be the reason I’ve lost some weight?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:

Yes, definitely. Your exercise in the morning helps burn excess calories from breakfast and sets the tone for a higher metabolism for the whole day.

Night-time exercise often means later meals, and that can translate to excess fat storage, and disturbed sleep patterns to boot!

But this is not always true, just a good observation for you. Not everyone’s metabolism will react in the same way, so some individual variation needs to be allowed when identifying the most suitable eating and workout times.

What works best for you is what works best for you!
