Losing weight begins when the alarm clock goes
How you ask? Morning time is full of potential, but most of us don’t take advantage of it’s capacity to encourage weight loss. Interestingly, it actually starts before you wake; a healthy and regular sleep cycle is an important way to keep stress down and weight off. Once you wake up, check out these ways to encourage weight loss in the morning time.
Weight loss in the morning time
- Keep the pounds down with the power of the morning light: sunlight helps to regulate the sleep cycle and a healthy way to wake up is with natural morning light. Let it filter in through the window and wake you up rather than blocking it out.
- High protein mix for breakfast: protein should be distributed throughout the day, not consumed en masse during the last meal. A high-protein mix for breakfast helps your metabolism start up, your muscles maintain and repair and importantly, fends off hunger throughout the rest of the day. It’s time to stop reaching lunchtime in a state of starvation- add more protein and fiber into your morning meal.
- Workout in the morning time: while it’s not right for everyone, some moderate cardio in the morning can help curb appetite and body fat is more easily burned on an empty stomach.
- Commuting with your weight in mind: the most simple tip of all- park further away. Every step counts when it comes to your weight.
