Recent research has shown that not only do our bodies burn calories during exercise, but that increased caloric burn continues for
hours after. One study found that men
who biked at a high intensity for
45 minutes burned an extra 190 calories over the 14 hours following the workout. Other studies have backed these findings but, they all note, that low or moderate intensity workouts don’t show the same substantial results.
Exercising in the mornings can help creating a regular sleep pattern.
