2. Working Out Early Will Increase Your Metabolic Rate
Metabolism is an all encompassing word to describe the process in which the body changes nutrients into energy, or how the body stays alive.
Some people have slow metabolism while others have faster metabolism.
Things like age, sex, thyroid activity and genes impact metabolism and make it slower and there is usually not much you can do about these factors.
But there are other factors that you can affect to speed up your metabolism.
Making sure your body is fueled and exercising to increase muscle are the most popular, easy ways to pep up your metabolism.
If your body does not have any nutrients to turn into energy, the body will begin to break down muscle. And this is counter productive.
Making sure that you have breakfast and eat healthy, balanced meals throughout the day will make sure that your body has enough nutrients to change into energy to keep itself busy.
If your body has a job to do, it will work harder and be more efficient. Effectively increasing your metabolic rate.
Muscle cells require a lot of energy so they break down more nutrients than fat cells.
In order to increase your muscle mass, you can add aerobic, or more aerobic exercise to your exercise plan, you can lift weights, and you can be physically active in the morning.
Working out in the morning gives your metabolism a boost that will help you start burning calories early in the day and stay burning all day long.
Take away: Burn more calories by working out in the morning.
