Circadian Diet

Did you know that you can shed those stubborn pounds by just eating at the right time?

You know how the saying goes, “You are what you eat” means that making smart food choices is the key to eating and living healthy. But did you know that when we eat is just as important as what we eat?

According to the latest research, our body’s internal clock, a.k.a. Circadian rhythm greatly impacts how we make food choices and metabolize fuel. That is because our metabolism changes throughout the day because of our circadian rhythm.

Jessica Tong, a Vancouver-based registered dietitian said that metabolism changes throughout the day because of our circadian rhythm or natural body clock. She explained that during the morning, in response to daylight and food, insulin sensitivity increases and melatonin decreases, making us feel alert and energized. Meanwhile, in the evening, melatonin levels go up and insulin sensitivity decreases, preparing our body for rest and cell repair.

Circadian rhythms when disrupted will not affect sleep, but also prevent the body systems from working efficiently, which leads to insulin resistance, fat storage, and increased disease risk. But through aligning your food with your circadian rhythm, you can help maximize weight loss, energy, and overall health.

According to Dr. Nada Milosavljevic, MD and Director of Integrative Health at Mass General Hospital, your body’s internal clock, a.k.a. Circadian rhythm greatly impacts how you make food choices and metabolize fuel. With a little knowledge and awareness, you can tweak your eating habits to sync with your circadian cycle, which in turn supports weight-loss efforts.

Experts believe that aligning our mealtime with our circadian rhythm can help maximize weight loss, improve endurance, reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, and lower blood pressure, among other things.
