What is the Circadian Rhythm Eating Pattern?
Not only is it important to be careful about what we are eating, but we should also pay attention to when we are eating, which plays a great role too.
Today, I’ll be talking about an important topic that I haven’t covered a lot by now.
It’s growing in popularity, and it’s scientifically backed.
Have you ever heard about CREP or circadian rhythm eating pattern?
What is a Circadian rhythm?
>>> Your circadian rhythm is basically a 24-hour internal clock that is running in the background of your brain and includes cycles between sleepiness and alertness at regular intervals. It's also known as your sleep/wake cycle.
>>> A disrupted circadian rhythm may lead to increased production of insulin in your body, which can, furthermore, lead to chronically elevated insulin levels, that can result in an increased risk of the developing of the cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes.
Now that I’ve explained the basic facts about circadian rhythm, let’s talk about the nutritional aspect of it.
The circadian rhythm eating pattern is a form of time-restricted eating plan where you eat in sync with your internal clock.
What should you do?
✅ Eat-in a 10-12 hour window
✅ A hearty breakfast and a lighter dinner
✅ Last meal 2-3 hours before going to sleep
This can be helpful to you in many ways.
Aligning your mealtime with your circadian rhythm can help maximize weight loss, improve endurance, reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, and lower your blood pressure, among many other benefits.
