The Latest Research Shows Eating with Your Circadian Rhythm Can Help Improve Your Health and Weight. Have you previously struggled or are you currently struggling with weight loss? If you’re like most American’s the answer is probably, “yes.” Finding a program that helps you lose weight and maintain it can be challenging, especially in today’s world where we’re bombarded with information.
However, relying on a program that’s based on the latest scientific research could not only help you lose weight, but also improve your health, wellness and quality of life. National nutrition and metabolism expert, Dr. Pamela Peeke, MD, MPH, FACP, FACSM, explains the latest research findings that are reshaping the way we look at weight loss.
NEW SCIENCE: DISCOVERING YOUR INTERNAL CLOCK
Scientists have recently discovered that focusing on your body’s internal clock may be the key to sustainable health. Your body and every one of its cells possess 24-hour clocks that follow a unique daily pattern, called a circadian rhythm. These body clocks become dysfunctional when living today’s chaotic 24/7 grab-and-go lifestyle. By following a more natural circadian rhythm of light and dark, being awake and sleeping, your body’s clock can work in their natural state.

How can you use your body’s natural clock to improve your overall health as well as shed excess pounds?
Jenny Craig’s New Rapid Results Program integrates your circadian rhythm with its successful approach to weight loss. The program shows you how to “nourish” your body for 12 hours, and then “rejuvenate” for the remaining 12 hours, also known as time-restricted feeding (TRF). During the nourishing phase, you’ll eat healthy foods while staying physically active. During the rejuvenating period, when you’re finished eating, extraordinary things will start taking place throughout your body.
MORE THAN JUST WEIGHT LOSS
And it’s not just weight that’s improved. Scientists have also found that sticking to the 24-hour nourish-rejuvenation cycle not only preserves your muscle mass but, with physical activity, may increase it. Meaning when you lose weight, you won’t be losing important muscle mass that can help your metabolism burn fuel more efficiently. You’ll also activate fat burning and reduce swings in appetite.9 Sleep quality and energy may also be enhanced. Further benefits include a decreased risk of dementia, along with improved mental alertness and mood.10
THE IMPORTANCE OF SLEEP
While following your circadian rhythm, the most natural 12-hour eating cycle begins in the morning and ends at 8PM. For the majority of the “rejuvenation” period, you are sleeping. For example, you could eat your first meal at 8AM and have your last by 8PM for the day. By adhering to this kind of schedule, you can reorganize your evening hours and focus on getting to bed earlier, or unwinding with a good book before bed. Try a walk after dinner. Call a friend or family member and catch up.
“The rejuvenation window is a critical period when your body regroups, resets and regenerates after a busy day metabolizing your food and then using it to fuel your daily activities. One benefit of allowing your body this renewal time is that your body fat, especially belly fat, decreases.7 This is good news, as excess belly fat is associated with obesity and an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.8” said Peeke.
