American nutritionists have found that the number of calories burned depends not only on a person's activity but also on the day's time. So, the rest of the body spends 10% more calories in the evenings than in the morning. The researchers found that the smallest calories burned from 0: 4 to 0: 6 am and the highest – from 17:00 to 20:00.

In such conclusions, the researchers came as a result of an experiment with a group of seven volunteers. For a little more than a month, the subjects lived in a laboratory without windows, where they did not get any exercise and were in a state of rest. In order for the participants in the experiment not to be able to watch the time, the scientists took their watches and phones from them. Day Regime – Growth, Closure and Food – Nutritionists are strictly regulated. At the same time, every night's sleep was delayed by 4 hours.
It turned out that only if the biological and real evening volunteers coincided, their body burned about 0.5 grams of fat every hour.
"For many people, the biological and real evening is the same. But if a person breaks the day's regime, he goes to bed later and later, the difference between the time of the biological and the current greenhouse increases, so the biological evening comes late at night or early morning in an unfavorable day of burning calories, "the authors of the study said.
American scientists have found that when the biological and the actual hours coincided, the smallest calories the subjects burned from 0: 4 to 0: 6 in the morning and the highest – from 17:00 to 20: 00.
According to Russian experts, daytime really affects the amount of body burned calories and a study by Western scientists once again demonstrates the need to follow a certain daily regimen for those who want to lose weight.
"A lot of fat burning from 00:00 to 01:00 at night. During this time, there is a somatotropic hormone that can burn up to 150 grams of fat in just 50 minutes. the hormone is completely excreted, provided that the person sleeps on time and has ate food containing protein before bedtime. But if a person ate something containing carbohydrates (whether it be an apple or a cake ) before bedtime, hormone production is blocked, "said Alexey Kovalkov, a doctor of medical sciences at the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Not long ago, American scientists have found that using cow's cheese – a protein-rich product – 30-60 minutes before bedtime, helps reduce the amount of fat in the body during sleep.
