Day 2 of the 60 Day Ultimate Optimization Challenge
Circadian rhythm is important and I think it’s the single easiest change you can make. Spend more time in daylight especially in the am (even 1 min on busy days) and spend more time sleeping especially on a light stomach. More sleep, more light and watch yourself TRANSFORM.
Remember it's always the little things that make the biggest impact.
If you haven’t already take pictures of yourself, measure your waist to hip ratio and see how you feel with regards to your energy, cravings, happiness, right now (rate it 1-10) so that we can rate it later.
We are continuing on the Nutrition and Fasting section of the program. Today, we will be discussing: Circadian rhythms—how they work and what affects them.
Here’s what you need to know:
Up to 80% of genes follow a circadian pattern (day/night rhythm) to keep the body healthy Eating and waking/sleeping in sync with your inner clock.
How do circadian rhythms work? Light is the biggest cue. The body goes into sleep mode when it's dark and rises with light. Food is another input—the body works better when it has a dedicated time to digest and process food. Your homework for today is: Wake up at sunrise. Stop eating and dim the lights at sunset.
