When it comes to weight loss, paying attention to your internal clock could be as important as counting steps or setting the stopwatch on your fitness tracker. Your circadian rhythm, the 24-hour clock that governs bodily rhythms — ranging from sleep-wake cycles and body temperature to hormones and digestion — also appears to have an impact on your weight. It’s not just what you eat or how much you exercise that matters; it’s the timing of each component that is the true secret to weight loss success. Research shows that our bodies’ inner. Listening to your body clock can help you manage your weight and reduce the risk of diseases like diabetes.

Whether we’re at work, rest or play, the time of day determines how many calories we burn. And the number of calories we burn changes throughout the day – even when we’re resting – according to new research. Could Your Body Clock Be Sabotaging Your Weight Loss? We all know that eating too much will ultimately lead to you gaining weight.

Other aspects which help put on those unwanted kilos have also been linked to eating later at night past around 9pm but new research proposes that it may in fact be dependent on your own body clock!Your Circadian Clock May Be the Key to Weight Loss After 50 By Peg Doyle • UPDATED: December 1, 2019 • Health and Fitness It seems that the brilliant researchers who study our circadian clock, that internal timekeeper, have tuned in to an important factor for weight management. Your fat cells remain untouched, and you don’t lose any weight. But when you engage in sustained, strenuous (i.e., aerobic) exercise, your system shifts gears and you start metabolizing body fat. This typically occurs about 15 or 20 minutes into your workout, when you experience the familiar phenomenon known as “hitting your stride.”.

“If your goal is to lose weight, stick to body weight or lighter weight (higher rep) workouts. “High-intensity cardio, such as running on a flat surface and at a steady pace, works best for fat loss. How To Heal: To lower your estrogen levels (and thus, help lose weight), You no longer feel bloated and cranky, obsessed and neurotic, or guilty and self-loathing about your body—you can finally focus on your deepest hopes and dreams, your purpose in life. You can discover what makes you feel most alive and awake.

The idea is that you can eat whatever you want and still lose weight because the tapeworm is eating all your “extra” calories. But this only works in theory. In fact, they found that losing just 10% of your body weight during the first five years you have the disease can lead to remission of type 2 diabetes.

That weight loss would be 18 pounds for.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • interesting points,if anyone else wants to discover thought manipulation try Loctavan Mind Attraction Strategy (do a google search )? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my brother in law got great results with it.

  • I’ve been listening and it helps with my sleep. But most of all, I don’t want to eat and I love it! Morning is coffee and my next meal is dinner. I can’t thank you enough.

  • 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.

  • I am slim and beautiful. I enjoy living a healthy and enjoyable life. I am motivated, I can feel myself getting thinner each day. I enjoy exercise oh, it makes me feel great. I am slim and fit��������

  • 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.)

  • Overnight I lost over a half of a pound…the voice freaks me out at times, there’s this old campy movie where this perverted man calls this young woman on the phone, the way he says “I” reminds me of this,:)

  • QOTD: how many hours of sleep do you get?
    ✔ My book “Think and Live Lean”:
    ✔ Subscribe and turn post notifications on:

  • I used to take it because I couldn’t sleep before school when I was a kid and it gave me really bad anxiety and weird hallucinations after taking it after a long time. Be careful!

  • I (typically) get about five hours of sleep a night, but I also nap during my hour-lunch break at work, and often get another hour nap right after I get home from work. On the weekends, five hours at night, and a two-hour nap midday. So, do cumulative hours count? What do you think?

  • Sometimes only 6 hrs and it’s broken sleep, like 2 hrs when I get home from work and then if I am lucky 4 hrs more later before work! I live on a farm so I have to get up to do chores! Doing the best I can but it sure is hard to stay healthy also I am 60 yrs young not that that an excuse!! Thanks for your channel I get lots of tips!

  • I used to take melatonin in the hospital and rehab, for sleep and it didn’t work and I was on a lot! All it did was give me awful vivid dreams!! I had to fight with them to take me off it! It should be taken off the market, it’s just poison

  • 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’.

  • Don’t take this supplement. It is not pure and highly contaminated because it’s unstable. Instead you can eat pistachios which are rich in melatonin content naturally. A handful of pistachios in night can do the same trick.

  • Regarding the last experiment at 8:55 where one mouse eats at night and the other eats at both night and day which is the one he is saying is healthier?

  • Sis is slim sis feels good about her body sis is glowing sis is me!! �� She did it �� She lost a lotta weight has the body shape that she wants ��

  • I have a question….Does this supplement suppose to make you feel sleepy? I’ve been taking it for a few days now and, so far I’m still pretty awake even after taking it.

  • I work the 11-7 shift so my sleep and eating is quite out of wack!!! I work out in the gym at work at 2:00 am on my lunch break doing HIIT training on the elliptical and rowing machine and try to eat high protein and fat diet but losing the extra 15 lbs I’ve gained since staring this shift is quite a struggle! Sleep is very bad sometimes only 4 hrs a day! Any tips? Thanks love your channel.

  • This is a perfect example of whom you should listen to about diet and health. Not some YouTube “Doctor” who wants to sell you a program or book.

  • 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!
