A new Australian study found that exercising at the end of the day (especially for overweight men on a high-fat diet) has unique benefits in controlling cholesterol and blood sugar. A study by the Australian Catholic University (ACU) studied inactive men who are at risk of type 2 diabetes and a high-fat diet and found that people who exercise can improve their metabolic health better than those who exercise. Do the same exercise earlier in the day.
We often hear that exercising in the morning is healthier and more energetic. It turns out that if you are on a high-fat diet and are overweight, exercising at evening is more effective in improving your health than exercising in the morning. The results were published in the journal Diabetologia, and there is growing evidence that when we exercise, it can change the benefits we get from exercise.
Researcher of the Institute of Medicine Mary McKillop (ACU) said that they have long known that the biological clock is closely related to metabolism. Lead author Trine Moholdt, who also works at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, said that these new findings are part of a report by the New York Times Gretchen Reynolds that ACU began recruiting 24 sedentary obese men (no women to avoid problems, related to women’s menstrual cycle).
The volunteers in the laboratory checked their aerobic exercise, cholesterol, blood sugar and other health problems, asked about their eating habits, and then prepared the food to be delivered. The conclusion cannot be universally applicable. The study only included men on a high-fat diet, but there is growing evidence that exercise time is important, and for many of us, late exercise may be particularly beneficial. This is because the body’s hormones are supportive in the morning to burn fat.
This is what Anthony Hackney, a professor of sports and exercise science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill said. But unless you really are an early riser, don’t force it. Hackney said: “You can exercise, but the intensity may be so low that you don’t consume too much energy. “But now is not a good time to exercise,” Hackney repeated. The most important thing is to find the time that suits you.
