Time-Restricted Eating and the Circadian Rhythm
This information session takes a look at the circadian clock to explain why it’s important, how it works and how to know it isn’t working. These 24-hour clocks produce circadian (daily) rhythms in almost every aspect of physiology and behavior. Increasing evidence is showing that disruptions to this natural cycle caused by the modern lifestyle, with its artificial light and round-the-clock access to food, can impact our health, resulting in everything from poor-quality sleep to obesity, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Research is beginning to reveal how we can be protected against obesity and metabolic diseases by having our daily access to food restricted to a 10-hour window. This session will provide the information to gain a better understanding of the latest circadian rhythm and scheduled eating research.
