Circadian rhythms are physical, mental and behavioural changes that follow a roughly 24-hour cycle, responding primarily to light and darkness in a person’s environment.
As researched by Dr Freuman and reported by CNN, these circadian rhythms initiate variations in certain hormone levels, enzyme levels and glucose transporters at different parts of the day, which differentially affect how calories, carbohydrates and fat are metabolised.
During the day after eating, your body is primed for digestion and food is readily metabolised. The same meal eaten out of sync with your circadian rhythm results in delayed insulin response & disturbed metabolism. Because your body is not expecting to metabolise food it is stored and is likely to result in weight gain.
Here are some tips for eating in sync with your circadian rhythm as recommended by Horleys nutrition expert:
