    I'm fishing right now, when is the best time for a person who wants to lose weight, to start exercising. And also for those who are already in a descent shape, when is the best time for them to exercise.

      Exercise alone will not do what you want it to do. You will not lose weight without limiting your intake of calories. To lose weigt you must useup more calories than you take in.

      I agree, every minute counts. Start working out at least 3 times a week. Changing your diet would be the next step.

    Well I mean take it slow at first and gradually ease your way into it. Find your pace and build on it. But I don't see why there should be any delay, unless you've been injured or had surgery or something.

    Decide on your goals? Fitness is obviously always a good thing but to what degree you need? BUT for loosing weight exercise is the bonus its the DIET that will make most of the difference

    I'm curious as to why anyone would think that there is a BEST TIME TO EXERCISE.

    Frankly, I believe that the proper terminology should be "MOVE" or "ENGAGE THE BODY".  So, in this respect, I reject the term, "exercise" as a fabrication that sounds too artificial EVER to be a part of a human life.

    Don't think "EXERCISE".  Think "MOVE" or "ENGAGE THE BODY".  If you cannot find anytime to do what the body was designed to do, then you are not living, so get moving NOW or you are dying.



    It's THAT critical that you understand this. 

    Stop thinking and talking about time, and start doing and celebrating movement.

    The best time is now, unless you have health issues then the best time is after you discuss exercise with your doctor.  Put a limit on caloric intake and at the same time expand caloric use by exercise - best way to lose weight, but remember it takes time.

    No, no, no.

    Forget calories.  Forget dieting.  Counting calories is totally unnatural.  Categorizing eating as a diet also is totally unnatural.

    Make moving your body and engaging the body a part of your life anytime you can.  Eat with awareness and with a sense of balance and proportion -- learn the food groups, and go by sight and feel.

    No other time as good as the present. Try to make exercise a regular part of your life and also try to do lots of other non-exercise activities.

    Some of my favorite non-exercise activities are hiking, tennis, dance lessons and yoga.

    You can also try golf or any team sport.

    For us all the best moments to exercises are at 6 am or 17:30 pm:  is when we increase  the secretion of testosterone.
    But if you want lose weight the best time is in the morning, after an overnight fast: in this way you stimulate the production of GH (growth hormone) that is naturally high in the morning and you wake up your metabolism.
    Not everyone can (for work commitments and other) make exercices in the morning. We can say that would be the optimal situation, but the most important thing is to do exercises, when we can.... just do it!!
    Good healthy!

    so true I believe. it's a whole body, mind effort. if you want to exercise specifically, listen to your body. it will let you know. some people prefer the morning to jump start their metabolism. even a brisk morning walk can get the mind/body connection activated. I mix it up, but always a morning walk [benefit of being a dog owner] the key is to be moving and aware of your body throughout the day.

    There is not really a best time to start, other than now. If you have any health complications of course you need to consult a doctor first. However as most people say there is not a best time to workout, for your body. However for your mind there may be. Find a groove and stick with it. Whatever you are more comfortable with you will stick to. Just get working. Also get working on a healthy diet
