Dr. Mercola's Comment:

The flood of contradictory information about your health you are regularly exposed to can often be confusing and intimidating. The linked list itself suggests exercising in the morning ... or afternoon ... or maybe after work.

One of the purposes of Mercola.com is to offer you many free tools to help you sort through the confusion. But the simple fact is, everyone's body is different.

You will certainly want to review my recent article on exercise, which is one of the most viewed articles I have ever posted.

The best way to sort through the information is to try a variety of different methods, and find out what works best for you by carefully observing the results. This is true for diet as well as exercise -- the best way to determine your nutritional type is to experiment to see how you feel immediately after eating certain foods, several hours afterward, and so on.

In a nutshell, what you really need to do is take control of your own health.

You know your body, and its reactions, better than any doctor ever could. Armed with information, and a variety of useful methods to try out, such as the linked list above, you, and you alone, can optimize your body to the peak of health, to an extent you might not even have thought was possible.

Last week, after eight months of hard work,  I just sent  my new book, Take Control of Your Health, to the printer. It is one of the most amazing books I have ever written as it will help you sort out all the challenging details discussed above. It should be available by the third week of June.
