Cold exposure in the morning could be more beneficial in boosting metabolism and burning fat in men than in the evening, according to a study. Researchers found that brown adipose tissue (BAT), the type of fat that burns calories to produce heat, responds differently to cold exposure depending on the time of day. Results suggested BAT response to cold is influenced by circadian rhythms and morning exposure may promote greater BAT activation. The study could have implications for weight loss and metabolic health. The research was conducted at the National Institute of Health in the US and published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
