Are You Lightest In The Morning?

February 12, 2012 by 26 Comments

Are you heaviest at night before you go to bed and lightest in the morning? I tried to tease out the factors to figure out what really causes weight gain and loss during the day, and what causes daily weight fluctuations.

    Derrick, love you channel.I’ve been watching for months. I watched a TEDX talk on mathematics of weigh lost which confirms your findings.

    3:30 good thought, but she has to imagine it more like how a spring doesn't lose mass when it loses its saved energy.

  9. During daytime, the sun and the earth pull the objects on the earth's surface in opposite directions. During nighttime, the sun and the earth pull these objects in same direction. Can this be a reason for an object to weigh more at night as compared to its weight in the morning…🤔

    It eeemed intuitive to me a person would be lightest first thing in the morning. They are burning calories to sustain their life which come from carbohydrates and fat, but they are not taking in any food or drink. The lost mass is the carbohydrates and fats reacting with oxygen to generate energy (through an exothermic chemical reaction), carbon dioxide and water vapour, the latter two being exhaled.

    In the morning u r facing the sun and its gravitational force pulls u away from earth so u loss negligible amount of weight but not the mass and when u r facing away from the sun the gravitational force of sun is towards the earth causing an increase in weight. This first came in my mind can anyone approve or disprove it???

    I'm surprised no one mentioned getting up in the night to go to the bathroom. For people who do that, it probably has a significant effect (much more than the 250 g from this video).

    You didn't factor in the fact that most people take trips to the bathroom every night during sleep.
