This Simple Mistake is WRECKING Your Diet
When it comes to weight loss gimmicks, I’ve seen it all.
The fad diets, the meal replacement drinks, the programs that make you fork over your paycheck to sell you their “secret” to weight loss.
With over 2 BILLION people being overweight, the weight loss industry is not likely to go out of business anytime soon.
Whether you’re paying into the system or venturing out on your own, the last thing you want is to unknowingly sabotage your efforts.
But this one simple mistake could be doing just that.
When it comes to losing weight, when you eat is just as important as what you eat.
Researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital studied the relationship between body fat and body mass index, and two similar (but different) factors: time of day and circadian rhythm.
Even though the two might be similar, they don’t necessarily overlap because everyone’s individual circadian rhythm could vary slightly.
The participants spent one night at a research facility so that the scientists could determine when their body started releasing melatonin (the sleep hormone). Then the researchers tracked the participants sleep times and meal intake for 30 days.
This study turned up some pretty shocking results. Not only did the time of day not factor into BMI, the amount of food didn’t either.
The one factor that WAS associated with a higher percentage of body fat and BMI was consuming a lot of calories when your melatonin levels were high.
This was the first study to take a closer look at the role circadian rhythm plays in relation to body fat and body mass index in a real-world setting. And I have to say, I’m thrilled that more and more researchers are waking up to the critical role our circadian rhythm plays in practically every aspect of our health.
Studies show that your circadian clock regulates the release of hormones that regulates everything from energy and mood, to sleep and heart health.
You may not know exactly when your body starts releasing melatonin, but the best way you can play it safe is to stop eating a few hours before you go to bed.
To a brighter day,
