Hi Nick

Neither, or both, depending on how you look at it - there's no better time, unless there are practical reasons why one would train better in the morning or afternoon. For example, some people struggle for the rest of the day if they train in the morning, so for them, afternoon training is better. Or, they can't train on an empty stomach. For others, perhaps like yourself, it's maybe better to go in the mornings because you feel better. Of course, that has to be weighed against the hectic day you have if you try to fit training in before work. But the point is that your decision is not largely influenced by weight loss concerns, so you can afford to be practical about it.

Good luck
