Good evening, and I hope your 2020 is off to a great start!

If you made any New Year’s resolutions to improve your health – I applaud you.

It’s never too late to ditch the junk food and hit the gym, because after all… THIS could be the year those changes finally stick for good.

And today, I’m going to give you “the edge” that could make all the difference.

Because a new study sheds some light as to why some diets and exercises just don’t work… and what you can do to turn it all around.

DITCH the pounds 2020

In a recent study in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, researchers found meal and exercise timing have a major impact on weight loss.

For six weeks, 30 men were followed and split into three groups:

  • Those who ate breakfast before exercising;
  • Those who ate breakfast after exercising; and
  • Those who made no lifestyle alterations.

The results?

Those who exercised BEFORE breakfast burned twice as much fat.

The theory is, when you fast overnight, you have lower insulin levels during your workout – allowing your body to use up more fat.

Translating to: A greater burn!

What’s more, those who exercised before breakfast responded better to insulin in their muscles, leading to a better control of blood sugar levels in their body.

And they experienced ALL of these results without changing the intensity, duration, or perception of their exercises.

Folks, this is the kind of information that can give you “the edge” when you’re trying to lose weight the RIGHT and NATURAL way via diet and exercise.

When it comes to diet, I recommend Paleo. With this method, you’ll eat like our ancestors did, which means cutting out processed foods. Instead, lean meats, vegetables, berries, and seeds should be what’s on your fork.

Per the study, try to get some exercise in before breakfast time.

You don’t need to spend hours running on the treadmill if the gym isn’t your thing. Instead, try:

  • Taking a brisk walk
  • Swimming laps around the pool
  • Riding your bike outside
  • Going dancing

The key is to keep your heart pumping for a full 30 minutes at least five times a week.
