Weight loss: The best time of day to exercise and lose belly fat according to Carly Rowena

Carly Rowena is a fitness and body confidence guru on Youtube and Instagram with over half a million followers and subscribers. The personal care and wellness expert advocates eating well and exercising in a way that makes you feel good.

She spoke with Express.co.uk about hitting fitness goals and said working out in the morning was the best way to see “serious results”.

Carly, who previously detailed her diet, which means followers can still enjoy wine, said: “I’m a huge advocate for working out in the morning.”

The personal trainer continued: “I know we have morning people and evening people. If you know you’re evening, that doesn’t concern you, but some people just don’t know where they’re sitting. .

“I will honestly say that the morning is the best time to train, especially for moms who have had less sleep because they have their newborn.

“If you can train first thing in the morning, set your alarm clock for that time earlier and do it.”

Setting an alarm an hour earlier and getting your workout done isn’t just a tick box exercise or a way to save time in the day to workout.

According to Carly, it’s a practice that will set you up for a successful day in so many ways.

“You’re so much more likely to achieve your goals than if you did it any other time of the day because you woke up, you set your intention,” Carly said.

“It might be a walk outside or a workout in the living room or garage, but you did it, which means you feel positive.

“It means you’ve already taken something off your to-do list, and then the whole day goes the same way. You usually eat a better breakfast, then you usually move around a bit more. You feel better in your skin, you dress better, all day like is fine.

“Whereas if you tell yourself you’re going to exercise in the evening, the day goes on, you get distracted and tired, and that doesn’t happen.”

Carly calls it a “power hour” and says it’s been the secret to many of her clients’ success.

She said: “I’m a firm believer in setting yourself a power hour.

“This is the time when you’re going to get up and exercise before the rest of the family is even up.

“I really think with all of my clients who have done this, we’ve had some serious results and it’s been a game-changer for me.

“I wouldn’t be able to be fit if I didn’t do it first thing in the morning.

Another expert, personal trainer Emily Fury, explained how to lose belly fat by walking.

She said: “By walking, say, 10 kilometers a day, it really adds up and you will see results.

“Besides the physical benefits, I can’t stress enough how helpful walking is for your mental health.

“In a world where we consume social media daily, getting out for a walk is so important to your headspace.”
