Number of calories you burn depends on the time of day. Nydia Han reports during Action News at 9 a.m. on November 11, 2018.

It appears that timing is everything, particularly when it comes to burning calories.

Researchers found that people burn about 129 more calories when resting in the afternoon and evening, than in the early morning.

However, morning is the better time to burn carbohydrates, while fats are more likely to be burned in the evening.
