Creating a lighter, healthier you is a multi-step process. One of the most important steps, and the main focus of this section, is exercise. Here we explore everything from the benefits of exercise to how much and how often it is necessary to promote weight loss.

Morning Exercise is Best for Fat Burn

Morning exercise is best for fat burn because you've been fasting while sleeping and your body is already breaking down fat for glucose. By engaging in an aerobic activity in the morning, your body will release its own hormones to do the trick that was once accomplished by calorie-laden coffee.


The best part about a morning workout? The great feeling that it provides lasts throughout the entire day.

Get Moving in the Morning!

Here are few quick tips for beginning your day with exercise:

•Prep your clothes the night before (looking the part is half the battle!)

•Wait until sunrise! Your skin can soak up vitamin D from the sun's rays, which can supply your body with needed calcium. Calcium gets converted into energy, which helps give you the stamina needed to power through your morning workout.

•Start small with low-intensity exercises like walking or jogging and progress to higher intensity.

•Create a music playlist that motivates you! If you haven't already, download the playlist below.

Keep going!
