Some people may enjoy exercising before breakfast but it’s actually a bad time to try to get your body moving with strenuous activity.
Why? Because after fasting all night and lying mainly in one position for hours, it’s like asking your body to perform like a sports car without putting any gas in the tank. It’s a much better idea to boost your energy levels with a healthy breakfast before exercising so there is some fuel to call on.
A recent study by the University of South Carolina found that swimmers who raced at different times of the day performed worse in the early morning up to 8:00am and best in the evening. In fact, evening exercise has the extra benefit of replacing typically sedentary night-time activities such as watching TV and surfing the Internet.
But a really crucial factor in exercise is regularity. So it’s best to pick a time with the fewest distractions.
That may end up meaning early morning for some people because it’s the only time they can guarantee not skipping an exercise session by being asked to help with a child’s homework or having to stay late at the office.
Regular exercise combined with a balanced, nutritious PCOS diet can help reverse an underlying cause of excess weight and obesity, namely the imbalance of blood glucose and insulin called Insulin Resistance. This latter condition decreases insulin sensitivity. By reversing Insulin Resistance, it is possible to facilitate Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome weight loss.
