Dr Oz’s weight loss tips rang from the best time of day to eat fiber for weight loss to the best time of day to exercise, so you boost your metabolism fast.
At certain times of the day, our bodies burn more calories. These weight loss tips from Dr Oz show that circadian rhythms are part of the formula – as well as applying fat-burning tips to your morning routine.
“Losing weight can feel like a full-time job,” says Dr Oz. “There are weight loss shortcuts, and your body is more receptive to losing weight at certain times of the day.”
My favorite weight loss tip from the Dr Oz show was a “pig out day.” One day a week, you can eat whatever you like! My least favorite tip was having a bath in icy cold water.
Dr Oz’s Weight Loss Tips – Best Times of the Day to Lose Weight
The best time of the day to weigh yourself is as soon as you wake up in the morning. You’re at your lightest in the morning, and you need to consistently weigh yourself to stay motivated to exercise and lose weight. You’re lighter than a bottle of wine in the morning than you are at night, because of going to the bathroom and fluid loss overnight, through sweat.
The Best Time of the Day to Exercise to Lose Weight
The best time of day to lose weight by exercising is right after you wake up and weigh yourself, first thing in the morning. When you exercise in the morning, you’re burning calories from different parts of your body. When you wake up and burn calories right away, you’re burning fat and are more likely to lose weight. If you exercise later in the day, you’re burning the food you ate…not fat.
The Best Time of the Day to Eat Food
The best time of the day to eat your meals is to follow your natural circadian rhythms. If you get up at 6:30, eat at 7:30. Eat lunch about 4 ½ hours later (1:30 pm), and eat dinner about 6 ½ hours later (6:30 pm). Have dinner about 3 ½ hours before going to bed. To lose weight, don’t let yourself get too hungry.
The Best Time of the Day to Boost Your Metabolism
The best time of the day to increase metabolism is 8 am. Drink a glass of ice cold water at 8 am; it forces you to burn calories, and it helps you feel full. You’ll lose a pound a year if you drink a glass of ice cold water every day.

The Best Time of the Day to Shop for Food
The best time to go grocery shopping is at 10 am. You’re still full from breakfast and the glass of ice cold water. Your blood sugar levels are at a good level (low blood sugar levels impair your decision-making abilities).

The Best Time of the Day to Take Fiber to Lose Weight
The best time to take a fiber supplement – which helps with weight loss – is at 6:15 pm. Take it before you eat dinner. When you eat food at night, you’ll be more likely to eliminate heavy foods. This will help you cut calories and lose weight. Losing as little as 70 calories a day can help you lose 70 pounds of weight a year.
No matter what Dr Oz’s weight loss tips are, the best time of the day to lose weight is most often in the morning.
One last weight loss tip from Dr Oz
Fat and sugar can affect your brain and physiology, just like cocaine can. It’s an addiction that can cause you to overeat by blocking the fullness hormone, leptin. No matter how much you eat, you still feel hungry…which makes it very difficult to lose weight! The best way to lose weight at any time of the day is to get yourself off fat and sugar, my friends.
