Mornings are also the best time, because that is when you are bothered by least distractions and most zealous. Working out after a long day at work or too close to bed may get too much for your brain because that is the time it is really looking to wind down, as the day's stress is at its peak.
2. Don't skip your breakfast

Make sure your breakfast is rich in protein and fibers. This is because protein tends to take longer to digest and thereby pushes your body to secrete the gut hormone - Peptide YY, which makes you feel full. Fibre also satiates you and keeps you from bingeing into other high fattening snack.
