Study: Getting Up Early Could Help You Lose Weight

A study from Northwestern University says that early risers are more likely to lose weight because of exposure to morning sunlight.

“If a person doesn’t get sufficient light at the appropriate time of day, it could de-synchronize your internal body clock, which is know to alter metabolism and can lead to weight gain,” said Dr. Phyllis Zee, Professor of Neurology and Northwestern.

Other studies show that waking up early also boosts productivity, reduces stress, and leads to better exercise and health habits. The researchers recommend people spend 20-30 minutes in the morning light and can be spent anytime between 8 a.m. and noon.
