A study published in the journal “PLoS One “says that sun’s rays can help you lose weight. Authors of the study had 54 subjects who wore devices on their hands per week which recorded their morning sun exposure.
During the seven days, the subjects wrote down what they ate, watched their caloric intake. Those among them who were more exposed to the sun had a lower body mass index than those who spent more time in the dark, regardless of age, diet and physical activities.

Morning rays also contain most of the blue light that has the strongest influence on our daily rhythm. We only need about 20 to 30 minutes of this light to feel its good effects.
