Title: When We Eat, or Donít Eat, May Be Critical for Health
Post by: ChrisSmolinski on August 07, 2018, 1358 UTC
That is the premise of a new book, ďThe Circadian Code,Ē by Satchin Panda, a professor at the Salk Institute and an expert on circadian rhythms research. Dr. Panda argues that people improve their metabolic health when they eat their meals in a daily 8- to 10-hour window, taking their first bite of food in the morning and their last bite early in the evening.

This approach, known as early time-restricted feeding, stems from the idea that human metabolism follows a daily rhythm, with our hormones, enzymes and digestive systems primed for food intake in the morning and afternoon. Many people, however, snack and graze from roughly the time they wake up until shortly before they go to bed. Dr. Panda has found in his research that the average person eats over a 15-hour or longer period each day, starting with something like milk and coffee shortly after rising and ending with a glass of wine, a late night meal or a handful of chips, nuts or some other snack shortly before bed. That pattern of eating, he says, conflicts with our biological rhythms.

What if you're non-biological entity that resides at Shady Acres?

Seriously though, in my youth, coaches used to ride our asses not to eat after dinner, with a light breakfast on game days. (They owned you from breakfast on game days.) However they thought water was bad for you, even in the at 90 plus degrees w/ high humidity. If you started looking wobbly they would give you salt pills w/ just a few sips of that evil water, have you jog the sideline after you were steadier, and send you back in to butt heads with the guy lined up the length of the football from you. I'm surprised more guys didn't die from heat stroke, but air conditioning wasn't as common then, guys were used to the heat.

Eating that way wan't a bad way to go, but you had a tendency to get fat after your playing days were over as your body still craved the same calories as before but didn't work them off w/ three hours of hard, high energy workouts.
