The Best Time to Exercise to Lose the Most Weight and Improve Insulin Sensitivity

As a part of my practice I routinely give exercise prescriptions. However, I have not been specific about the best time for exercise, especially when attempting to lose weight or maintain healthy blood sugar.  A fascinating new study from researchers at the Dept. of Biomedical Kinesiology, Leuven, Belgium, revealed that there is actually a “best time” to exercise.  In this study 28 healthy men between the ages of 18 and 25 were assigned to one of three groups.  The first group exercised before eating a carbohydrate-rich...
