What’s more, circadian rhythm is intimately tied to diet and weight loss. When we eat and what we eat helps the body understand what time it is, impacts physiology, emotional health and more. Since humans are normally awake during the day and asleep at night, it makes sense that eating during the day is the best bet. Experts argue that aligning your mealtime with your circadian rhythm can help maximize weight loss, improve endurance, reduce the risk of type 2.

Two recent books have helped build hype around the circadian rhythm diet: The Circadian Code by Satchin Panda, Ph.D., and What To Eat When by Michael Roizen, M.D., and Michael Crupain, M.D. The circadian rhythm diet offers two key rules for eating in line with your internal clock: 1. Eat during daylight hours. We all know how important sleep is for our body to repair itself and so, we called on four experts to zero in on one area of a burgeoning trend called the Circadian Diet.

They reveal how we can eat our way to smooth-running circadian rhythms, which in turns results in a better night’s sleep, a happier mood, and even clearer skin. Like intermittent fasting, the circadian rhythm diet advocates time-restricted eating of your daily calories within an eight to 10 hour block when the sun is up, leaving a 14-hour fast between your last meal of the day and the first meal of the next day. For this diet, experts have suggested swapping your dinner for breakfast. That question has been the subject of debate for years. straight from two experts who study circadian rhythms. on IF to reap the potential health benefits of a diet timed to your circadian. So, here’s the deal.

There is some good scientific evidence suggesting that circadian rhythm fasting, when combined with a healthy diet and lifestyle, can be a particularly effective approach to weight loss, especially for people at risk for diabetes. It is likely you have heard the common saying “eat like a king in the morning, a prince at noon, and a peasant at dinner.” This idea was proposed almost 1,000 years ago 1 and still remains today.. In recent years, the topic of meal timing has come to the forefront, with some believing the time of day, or your ‘Circadian Rhythm’, should dictate when to eat certain foods. Experts Debate: Is Juice Healthy? by Cassie Shortsleeve August 1, 2019 Experts Debate: Is the Circadian Rhythm Diet All Hype? Circadian rhythm — aka your body’s internal clock that governs your sleep and wake schedules — is an integral factor in overall health and well-being, playing a role in everything Read More.

No. No Comments In an age of wellness trends, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil and the circadian rhythm diet have all been hotly debated by experts. The latest and greatest seems to be collagen.

  • There is free software (f.lux) that will change the colors of your computer screen automatically over the day.
    At night it removes the blue light that disrupts your circadian rhythm. It works very well. You can download
    the app here: @t

  • I would gladly eat only in 10-11 hours timespan most of the week, but I start work at 9:30am and I exercise twice a week between 7-8pm and 10pm. I keep hearing that you need to eat after a workout, so I am kind stuck here:(
    (yes I know you’re going to say “just exercise during the day” but I can’t, it’s classes I take and I can only go AFTER work, since I work full time.)

  • I was really inspired by this study and created bioClock app to check if alignment of my daily routines with internal biological clocks would bring any benefit. After just 3 months of experiment I confirm all the theory, I could now fall asleep easily and wake up the same time in the morning without alarm thanks to melatonin timely production. The weight starts to normalize and overall level of energy increased.
    I don’t really understand why such brilliant research is so kind of unexposed to the public, and on the contrary we got tons of in the best case useless information about lifestyle and diets. It is so simple just to follow your circadian genes transcriptions.

  • The one thing at confuses me the most of Satchin Pandas work is what takes priority light or eating window? What if my eating window is 8 hours but doesn’t end until midnight? 2am?

  • 9:15 you can some good examples of people who doesn’t have good circadian clock. Luckily they made the fist good step by attending this conference

  • Finally, a perfect example on how to deliver a TED TALK the right way. Short and to the point. Thank you Satchin Panda for your knowledge.

  • Thanks to everyone taking their time to read this testimony on how my son was saved from Autism.
    He was diagnosed four years ago, and he was just 6yrs old, I have tried several treatments and medications, nothing was working out, this got me frustrated and depressed. I kept praying and finally God answered my prayers when someone from youtube introduced me to this doctor from his home country and gave me his contact details.
    I called and explained my son’s condition after which I made an order for his herbal remedy, he asked for my address and the next day I got a tracking number for a parcel sent to me through DHL and after four days I received my order.
    It was a liquid herbal medicine and a letter containing the instructions on how to use the herbs, I called him again to confirm and the next morning I started giving my son the herbs as instructed and after one week I noticed great improvement on my son and I continued until the herbs got finished and everything lasted for just one month and now my son is totally free from Autism, he can now talk clearly, behave normally and has no more seizures.

  • Herpes can be treated and cured permanently but only few believe it,, but I was among those who never believed it until doctor Agbonifo cured me of herpes, I had HSV for two years and it was eating me up one day I found a testimony of someone testifying to the great work of Dr Agbonifo who cured him of HPV, I was thinking since this man can cure HPV then he must be able to cure me of my virus too and to my greatest surprise he really cured me of Herpes, I only message him on email ([email protected]) and he replied me and we discussed then he sent me the medicine and today am herpes free…you can call/WhatsApp him on mobile +234 903 474 9874. All thanks to you Dr Agbonifo the great herbalist..

  • Very interesting and enlightening. It’s very hard to change habits of sleep and mealtime when it affects not only us but people around us but I would love to try this.

  • I wanna finish watching this but it’s 11:30pm and I can’t handle the guilt anymore. I will have to hit the sack and finish this tomorrow.

  • I’m into nutritional ketosis. My blood beta hydroxybutyrate averages 1.0 mmol/l and I average 5 hours to 6 hours sleep. My Circadian Rhythms must be a random walk and therefore immaterial in planning my meal timing and training timing. Grounding is balderdash.

  • Very good summary and nice peaceful, calm delivery. Thank you. PS I eat between 7:30 and  PM maximum and don’t even think about eating the rest of the day. Don’t be afraid you’ll be “hungry,” once you get used to it!

  • I’m sorry but it’s hard to believe everything he is saying is backed by strong evidence. I’m mean he starts off well, talking about very well known stuff, but then he begins to sound like everything in your life can be fixed by adjusting your diet and sleep to your circadian cycle. Ok, fine, that’s really very important but does he really have evidence to back all these assumptions?

  • How does it work for someone working at night shift… I mean if I don’t eat at night i will probably be starving by the time I need to go sleep… I haven’t find info about it yet. How will circadian clock work or be affected.. How can I be healthier working this shift.. Thanks

  • Panda is Right! This knowledge fits perfect with the circadian rhythm in human evolution. As a MD I would like to know when the different drugs and treatments work best.

  • I worked overnight shift(11pm-7am) for a year and a half. It was not uncommon for me to go 24-36 hrs with no sleep and then sleep for 3-5 hours and do it again. I was under severe stress. And then 5 months in I got white coating on my tongue which was Candida taking over because the gut is connected to you circadian clock. Shortly after that I got depression where I thought about suicide(never thought about actually taking my life but I thought how great it would be if a car would just hit me and get it over with). First 3 weeks after quitting the overnight shift I felt like a zombie during the day. It took me a few months to fully get use to being awake in the daytime and sleeping during the might again. I honestly don’t know how in the world there are people who work overnight shift for 10 plus years.

  • Where can I find the study on the eating thing? So was it 10 hours for humans?could it be more or less? And if so how much more or less?

  • You are so wrong! If you get locked in a dark department for longer time, your circadian clock will go wrong with all it affects. Your exposure to Day and night will help re-synchronizing your circadian clock at any time

  • amazing and evidence-based! I would like to learn on circadian rhythms of our organs as well, and how we can adjust the time of taking supplements

  • I don’t know much about science but 10 months ago I was desperate when I found your book “The Circadian Code” by accident. I follow 90% of what you prescribe in your book in all the areas you cover and it has CHANGED MY LIFE at all 3 levels as you say on the front page!!!
    Thank You

  • This all makes sense, but unfortunately not everyone has the opportunity to take up this cycle. Many people have to work night shifts, or work multiple jobs and don’t have the opportunities to follow this.

  • Does this mean that actually staring at your phone in the morning is beneficial, as the blue light from the screen will activate the melanopsin?

  • I started doing this a week ago and went from previously waking up in the night between 1am and 3am regularly to sleeping right through the night, from day 1 of restricted eating (between 7am and 7pm). I have slept right through every night and had a really deep, sleep. Try it, it works!!

  • Interesting video on circadian clock. My takeaways:
    1. Setup Night Shift on your Mac and iPhone now. Set it up to “Sunset to sunrise” and turn up the warmness to the maximum at that time. You should sleep better.
    2. Try eating only within 8-11 hours of your first meal. It’s important to eat breakfast. So intermittent fasting is healthy, but it shouldn’t be from, say, 12pm to 8pm. It should start in the morning. For instance, from 6am to 2-5pm, or from 8am to 4-6pm. It’s better to avoid food after 6pm. Not only for weight loss, but for better metabolism and better health.
    3. Try to spend more time outside during daylight, especially in the morning. Blue light helps increase alertness and boosts your energy and mood.

  • Dear Dr Panda, It is your excellent and most valuable research for Mankind. With your suggestions and guidelines, our patients are recovering fast from chronic inflammatory diseases. Pl. guide me how can I contact you? Can anybody use your knoledge in written form with mentioning your name, only to allow those illiterate people not using u tube or computer for boosting their knoledge, particularly in Indian cities. Please guide.

  • I tried the IF approach, and eating early dinners.
    Didn’t work that great for my lifestyle and job.
    Feel much better eating 4 or so times per day, and eating protein before bed.
    Sleep 9pm-5am.
    Likely ‘fat adapted’ as can easily skip breakfast and do a 2 hour bike ride all that jazz, but do better with carbs in the diet. Keto just makes me exhausted, weak and unable to perform athletically.

  • Have Orange lighting in the evening in your environment, and go out in the sun to let the blue light hit the sensors in your eyes, and lastly eat within 10 to 12 hours only of your waking up! Thanks

  • I would gladly eat only in 10-11 hours timespan most of the week, but I start work at 9:30am and I exercise twice a week between 7-8pm and 10pm. I keep hearing that you need to eat after a workout, so I am kind stuck here:(
    (yes I know you’re going to say “just exercise during the day” but I can’t, it’s classes I take and I can only go AFTER work, since I work full time.)

  • If the newly discovered light receptor is for blue light, maybe wearing blue light blocking lenses at night might help keep from interrupting the circadian rhythms.

  • Sorry to say, but the thing with keeping circadian rhythm after closing someone in apartment just isn’t true. There was some experiments with closing people in caves without time clues lengths of phases of their days have changed.
    But great talk anyway!

  • Great talk & very useful information.
    What I don’t get is why we’re still using animals for studies… seeing how easy it is to find human test-subjects nowadays.
    We really need to start making that shift, instead of continuing to make animals sick for the sake of research. It’s clear that doing this with (willing) humans will get us to the answers in a much faster and more accurate way.

  • So is it better to have chemo early or later? Don’t bring it up then not answer it!! Wtf. I had to take chemo early I hope I got the right time gezzz

  • Have Orange lighting in the evening in your environment, and go out in the sun to let the blue light hit the sensors in your eyes, and lastly eat within 10 to 12 hours only of your waking up! Thanks

  • Hi, first, thanks for all the knowledge you share. I don’t know if you are aware of this but that Under Armor shirt you’re wearing is supporting “big game trophy hunting!” I not against hunting when it comes to eating what you kill, but when you kill just for the fun of it, the thrill of it, that’s sick. If fact there’s a word for people that kill for the enjoyment of it, the word is “PSYCHOPATH!”

  • I’ve happened to be established in the diet as well as fitness profession for more than a decade and in this period I’ve cultivated a outstanding repute of which I’m phenomenally proud of. What exactly I’m intending to point out is this, they spent the better part of a year revising and assessing the 3 week diet before they finally made it accessible to the public. in doing this, they made absolutely certain that every single thing was covered knowing that absolutely nothing was overlooked. http://technologywatchpost.com/3-week-diet-review-lose-25-pounds-21-days/

  • Hello Mike, I’ve got a question, hoping to get your attention here! Having read a little on fasting and ketosis: I believe to understand that a person CANNOT go into ketosis until having fasted for 36 hrs, thus ridding the body of glucose and insulin, first, and after gluconeogenesis, then only does the liver start producing ketone bodies to fuel the brain. HOW COME are people talking about ‘ketogenic diets’ but not mentioning the essential fasting that must precede ketosis? Can you explain? THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR REPLY X

  • Vaccines did not save us, clean water and healthier living did. Vaccines are bio weapons. Why cant you sue Phizer or Merck? Hmmmm. Wake up people, we are being poisoned beyond belief.

  • Interesting video on circadian clock. My takeaways:
    1. Setup Night Shift on your Mac and iPhone now. Set it up to “Sunset to sunrise” and turn up the warmness to the maximum at that time. You should sleep better.

It should start in the morning. For instance, from 6am to 2-5pm, or from 8am to 4-6pm. It’s better to avoid food after 6pm. Not only for weight loss, but for better metabolism and better health.
    3. Try to spend more time outside during daylight, especially in the morning. Blue light helps increase alertness and boosts your energy and mood.

  • This is like telling people what healthy food is. No one can tell for sure, because people are different. So is the internal clock in our body. And it continually changes, depend on what kind of life we live. If you want people to get a better health, make them stop smoking, using alcohol, eat less, drink less, exercise more out in nature, buy less things so the air inside does not get poisoned, stay away from radon gas, stay away from all kind of radiation as mutch as you can, get a kinesiolog to test everything you eat and drink to find the best food for your own body, do the same with all clothes, and everything else you have around you in life. And remeber to stay awake at night and eat food, if you want to be creative 😉

  • Herpes can be treated and cured permanently but only few believe it,, but I was among those who never believed it until doctor Agbonifo cured me of herpes, I had HSV for two years and it was eating me up one day I found a testimony of someone testifying to the great work of Dr Agbonifo who cured him of HPV, I was thinking since this man can cure HPV then he must be able to cure me of my virus too and to my greatest surprise he really cured me of Herpes, I only message him on email ([email protected]) and he replied me and we discussed then he sent me the medicine and today am herpes free…you can call/WhatsApp him on mobile +234 903 474 9874. All thanks to you Dr Agbonifo the great herbalist..

  • Where can I find the study on the eating thing? So was it 10 hours for humans?could it be more or less? And if so how much more or less?

  • “I truly believe that circadian rhythm has untapped potential to prevent, manage, and cure many of the chronic diseases that affect billions of people.” Satchin Panda, ‘Health lies in healthy circadian habits’.

  • If the newly discovered light receptor is for blue light, maybe wearing blue light blocking lenses at night might help keep from interrupting the circadian rhythms.

  • I read a book “Change Your schedule, change your life” and it literally changed my life. Healing your circadian rhythm is the key.

  • So does that mean my body is messed up. I’ve been doing rotational shift for 10years now, working morning, middles and nights. My eating times are all over the place.
    What can I do?

  • I’m actually in shock!! Why did they not tell us about this in school? why did they make us dissect a frog instead? Why did i not know about this until now? this is life changing!!!!!

  • My dinner is at 5 pm, and I sleep at 8 pm. And I always wake up at 1 am for no reason, and I often can’t sleep anymore after that and it ruins my day. I really want to stay asleep at least to 3 am.

    Is it because I eat at 5 pm?

  • So is it better to have chemo early or later? Don’t bring it up then not answer it!! Wtf. I had to take chemo early I hope I got the right time gezzz

  • The reason I came to this video was that I OMAD at 5pm and wake at 8am and was wondering if the 5pm meal was optimum. I don’t eat at night at all so I guess I’m good to go.
