Burning calories becomes necessary when we want to lose a few pounds. Diet and sport have a great contribution, but also a specific time of day. And this is because currently burns are more intense, and you can use this for weight loss.
A new study shows that there is a time when the body naturally burns most of the calories, and this is due to the circadian rhythm, which controls the internal body clock and the daily cycle. These rhythms affect the burning of calories, especially during periods of rest when the human body can burn 10% more calories at the end of the day and in the evening after dinner, compared with early morning. More specifically, nearly 130 calories are burned day and night without any effort, and this can affect health.
A study published in the Journal of Current Biology emphasizes the fact that the circadian rhythm dictates not only the desire to relax, but also the complexity of the metabolism, which is valid for a 24-hour period. Thus, people who have an irregular sleep schedule, including those working in shifts, are facing obesity and are prone to developing conditions such as type II diabetes, cancer or cognitive decline. Even if we don’t hear it, the biological clock works constantly.
“It is possible that when you eat and consume energy, it can lead to weight gain,” said Jeanne Duffy, a citizen of the study at Brigham and the women's hospital.
When most calories burn
The study examined seven men, both women and men, aged 38 to 69 years old, who were in a glass, sand, telephone or Internet lab for 37 days; he does not know what time it will be released. Each evening, the participants slept four hours later than the previous night; this habit lasted 3 weeks. Thus, the internal body clock was forced to keep pace with the times, the researchers noticed that the biological periods of the body are completely different from the day time.
Everyone who participated in this study had to carry sensors to measure their body temperature, allowing researchers to determine the period of most calories. The higher the body temperature, the more calories it burns. Thus, it was found that the calorie burning rate was lower at night when the body temperature decreased, and after 12 hours the rate of calories burned increased during the day.
Of course, even if you plan your meals and take care of the observance of this program, remember that another very important aspect is exercise. Even if you don’t go to the gym, every effort, every move, involves getting energy and providing even the smallest moves from lifting a hand to sweeping the house, burning the required amount of calories.
