Swap your mid­day work­out for an evening sweat sesh and not only will you beat the worst of the sum­mer heat, you may also max­imise your over­all kilo­joule burn. Ac­cord­ing to a new study, your body’s rest­ing metabolic rate ( the amount of en­ergy you burn while laz­ing around) in­creases by 10 per cent dur­ing the late af­ter­noon and early evenings. This means a post-work run could be the key to tur­bocharg­ing your weight-loss ef­forts. As well as iden­ti­fy­ing a spike in metabolic burn, the study also un­cov­ered a dip in en­ergy ex­pen­di­ture dur­ing the late evening and early morn­ing, so if you’re keen to torch ex­tra kilo­joules, it might be worth push­ing your break­fast back a few hours, too.
