There are many ways to lose weight, the main aim is to just make sure that some calories are burnt. In order to lose weight, you must burn more calories than you consume. Have it in mind that it takes burning 3,500 calories in order to lose 1 lb. of weight. A lot of exercises combined with a reasonable amount of calories in your diet can help you achieve your weight loss goals.
1. Oxygen supply
Scheduling the proper time to do your running exercise will play a major part in the efficiency of your weight loss plans. Edward Howley, professor at the University of Tennessee stated that when there’s a diminishing in the temperature of blood it leads to a stronger bond between hemoglobin and oxygen, which inhibits the supply of oxygen to the working muscles.
2. Fat oxidation
Howley further went on to explain that a rise or fall in temperature (away from the top temperature range) leads to the declining in enzymes movement. Enzymes are required to break down fat if the body wants to utilize stored fat for energy to be used to fuel muscle. Running during the cooler part of the day is best to avert enzymatic deprivation.
3. Morning or evening
Exercising in the morning and evening both have physiological variances. Even though both times are good for running, you’ll burn calories differently. This is because the body fasts overnight and has less energy available unless you eat a large meal before your run, which is improbable and somewhat impractical. Therefore, you are likely to burn more fat when you run in the morning, as your body turns to your fat stores for energy.
According to the American Council on Exercise, the body temperature gets to the lowest point in the morning and elevates in late in the afternoon. At times, people find it hard to exercise when the body is not warmed up, and this would suggest that exercise is best carried out later in the day. Overall, if you have the time, a midday run when your body temperature is ideal, and you are not yet tired from the exertions of the day, might be a great time to go for a run.
