Burn Body Fat by Exercising in the Morning before Breakfast

June 24th, 2006

Burn Body Fat by Exercising in the Morning before Breakfast

Increase Metabolism

By exercising for at least 30 minutes in the morning when you first wake up and before you eat breakfast, you set your body up to burn more body fat.  The reason you burn fat better is because your body has been without food for several hours and you do not have carbohydrates available when you first wake up.  When you exercise your body need carbohydrates for energy but will instead substitute your body fat for energy instead, which improves your fat burning ability.


Have you ever found yourself tired at the end of the day and didnít exercise?  You might have had something unexpected come up that made it so you didnít do your evening fitness routine.  By the end of the day you are probably really tired.  It may not be a physical tired but a mental tired and you want to wind down for the day.  It can become self defeating to exercise in the evenings as you will likely give up on the routine because you will find it difficult to continually exercise in the nighttime.

If you exercise first thing in the morning your metabolism will get a boost for the whole day allowing for more calories to get burned throughout the day.  Exercising at night you rev up your metabolism only a short time just before you are going to sleep.  When you sleep your body goes into the slowest metabolic rate of the day.  Exercising at night can be counterproductive when you want to exercise to burn fat.

Donít forget to eat a healthy breakfast after you exercise.  Donít skip breakfast because this helps to improve your outlook for the day.  Eating breakfast can reduce your hunger and may help you to eat less the whole day.  You can also fire up your metabolism more by eating a breakfast.  Your body metabolism tends to slow down when you donít eat food as a protective measure.


If you exercise in the morning, even before you eat breakfast, you will find that you will have a better chance of getting in your workout every day.  The only obstacle that you would need to overcome is getting used to waking up in the morning to allow for the extra time to exercise.  To accomplish this goal, you need to work on going to sleep earlier and consistently and keep your bedtime schedule at the same time each night.  If a sleep routine doesnít vary, your body will grow accustomed to the going to sleep and waking up at the same time each day.

Exercising in the morning can be a great way to put something that you really donít like to do out of your mind for the rest of the day.  The reality for most people is that they donít like to exercise.  We know it is good for us, but we really donít like to do it.  I guess that is why they call it a ďworkĒ out.  It benefits us and we reason understand that we should do it, but if you have to think about it all day that you will have to work out in the evening, it can actually make your whole day dreadful.  If you get up and workout before you are conscious enough to even think about why you are working out first thing in the morning, you find that you will have already exercised and guess what,  you wonít think about exercising the rest of the day.


Always make sure to check with your doctor before starting any new diet or exercise program before you begin.  Exercise has been known to help reduce stress, and can give you a boost of energy.  If you exercise in the morning it gives you a good start to the day ahead.  It could even make it possible for you to get more things accomplished because you will be more alert sooner during the day.  While many of us can find every excuse not to exercise, you might want to rethink the morning workout routine and give it a try.  After all, it is your health that suffers when you donít workout.
