Sunshine For Weight Loss and Exercise

                                                                    Sunshine for weight loss

Research from the Northwestern Medicine neology shows that people who get 20 minutes of sunshine a day have much lower BMI.  The theory is that morning light, rather than afternoon light, synchronizes the body’s internal clock and speeds up the metabolism.

The best times are from 8am - 12pm, when light exposure was most efficient at hitting minimum goal of 500 lux.  Even on cloudy days you can still benefit from this, although sunny days can be upwards of 10 times more efficient.  

FYI - June 21st is the longest day of the year and coming up.  Don’t forget to wear sunscreen!
