Staying fit by the body clock

Staying fit by the body clock

Regardless of your inner clock, the optimal work out time is in the afternoon and early evening. During the second half of the day, the body's systems are geared up for action; the heart and lungs are performing most efficiently and the body is most limber.

Keep gym times consistent.

Everyone will get more from working out at the same time each day. Eventhough with the busy lives we are all leading it might be difficult, try to work out at the same time every day. This need for routine is highly important. You will gain more if you exercise at the same time consistently than if you work out at a variety of times during the day.

Eat by the clock.

Our internal clock responds to cues we give it about what time of day it is. Light is the most powerful cue, but when we eat is another important indicator. Body clock experts stress that consistent meal times are crucial in keeping the clock running smoothly.

Avoid the "post-lunch dip."

Everyone tends to be groggy after lunch. Some may overeat at lunch because they tend to skip breakfast. A balanced breakfast is essential for all. A brisk walk will also sharpen the brain.

Beware of midnight snacks.

People who always stay up utill late are notorious night nibblers, simply because they're awake and often socializing during these hours. Such habits can lead to weight gain, because calories consumed at night are not immediately burned off.
