Dr. Satchin Panda is a professor at the Salk Institute, La Jolla, California, and author of the new book “The Circadian Code: Lose Weight, Supercharge Your Energy, and Transform Your Health from Morning to Midnight”. Dr. Panda is a frequent speaker in international conferences on metabolism, exercise and chronic diseases. His research focuses on how circadian clocks regulate behavior, physiology and metabolism. His discovery of how a blue light sensor in the eyes affect sleep- wake cycle, depression and alertness is leading a new revolution in managing light to improve health. Recently he discovered that maintaining a daily feeding-fasting cycle – popularly known as Time-Restricted Eating (TRE) – can prevent and reverse many chronic diseases. Like most people, you probably wake up, get hungry for meals and doze off in bed around the same time every day. If you’ve ever experienced jet lag or pulled an all-nighter, you know that this schedule can easily be thrown off kilter. But for some people, that imbalance—difficulty sleeping at night, hunger at odd times, or sudden fatigue at noon—is a constant. If you're one of those people, Dr. Panda, one of the leading researchers on circadian rhythms, has a plan to reset your body clock. Beginning with an in-depth explanation of the circadian clock—why it’s important, how it works, and how to know it isn’t working—heoutlines lifestyle changes to make to get back on track. It's a concrete plan to enhance weight loss, improve sleep, optimize exercise, and manage technology so that it doesn’t interfere with your body’s natural rhythm. Dr. Panda’s life changing methods show you how to prevent and reverse ailments like diabetes, cancer, and dementia, as well as microbiome conditions like acid reflux, heartburn, and irritable bowel disease. During our discussion, you'll learn: -About TRE, and how it's related to the circadian code...6:25 You're mindful of your first and last calorie of the day; you want to intake calories within a set period of time each day. Why it's a time restriction, as opposed to a caloric restriction. TRE is more practical for the modern lifestyle than to restrict the food you eat with no time restrictions. Lab tests showed that mice ate the same amount of calories with TRE as without. Tests involving humans have shown that TRE has resulted in improved overall health. Good news for people who are tired of constantly being "cold and hungry" while trying to live healthy lifestyle. -The truth about Hugh Jackman's "Wolverine" Diet...10:30 Ate a lot of protein in a 8-9 hour window; resulted in putting on a lot of muscle for Wolverine. TRE is becoming a trend among Hollywood actors. Many body builders are using TRE; it's simply more practical and easier on the body. It's difficult to ascertain what is the best mode of TRE for each individual. Best to discover for yourself through trial and error. -How TRE affects endurance sport athletes...18:00 Tests have been conducted on mice, not humans thus far. Question was: will mice lose endurance when they have a small window of time for eating? Mice eating an unhealthy diet on TRE far outperformed mice with the same diet with no time restrictions on eating. -What is the optimal timeframe when utilizing TRE?...23:45 Most American adults eat more than 12, even 15 hours per day. The easiest (and healthiest) way to start incorporating TRE is to eat a later breakfast and an earlier dinner. -Why Dr. Panda believes that drinking a cup of coffee "breaks a fast"...29:30 Most people put cream and sugar in their coffee. Black coffee is preferable. A dependence on coffee to "get going" in the morning is an indication you're not getting enough sleep. By "fasting" Dr. Panda is referring more to resting your organs than not consuming calories. You can't repair a highway with traffic on it. Coffee can "reset" the circadian clock. A cup is akin to being exposed to an hour of bright light. After noon, coffee affects your ability to have deep, restful sleep at night. -About "Zeitgebers" and how you can use them to reset your circadian clock...38:30 We have "clocks" throughout the body. Light affects the "brain clock." Changing your eating schedule is a more powerful way to reset your circadian clock. Jet lag occurs more often after lunch. Eat a big breakfast, a smaller lunch or no lunch, and a good sized dinner. This may differ depending on your physical activity. -The best time of day to exercise...43:50 Late in the afternoon. Our ancestors had to get home (run) before dark. We've adapted to exercise better in the afternoon. "The circadian advantage": A West Coast based NFL team playing Monday Night Football on the East Coast has an advantage because of the time difference. -About "bi-phasic" sleep. Is it true that our ancestors would sleep, then wake up in the middle of the night, then go back to sleep?...48:00 "Common" does not equate to "normal." Our ancestors weren't as busy as modern people. We have a tighter window in which to sleep. -Ways to enhance your oxygen availability while flying, and reduce jet lag...53:10 Use a nasal device to expand your nostrils. Ayurvedic medicine: counter the dryness of the air with oils. -Why it's a bad idea to take melatonin right after eating...56:20 "Evening diabetes." The pancreas doesn't produce as much insulin. Give yourself at least an hour after waking up before eating. -The idea of resetting the "gut clock"...1:03:18 -And much more!

Circadian Rhythms And Time - Restricted Eating With Dr. Satchin Panda
In this episode we speak with Dr. Satchin Panda a Professor at the Salk Institute about Circadian Rhythms and Timed-Eating. Dr. Panda's research focuses on circadian rhythm in health and disease. His discoveries are rated among the top ten breakthroughs of the year by the Science magazine, and he is considered as one of the top 50 influential scientists in the book “Brain Trust”. Research in his lab has shown the profound impact of ambient light and daily eating-fasting rhythm on the prevention and management of chronic diseases and cancer. mycircadianclock.org www.salk.edu
Dr. Satchin Panda on Practical Implementation of Time-Restricted Eating & Shift Work Strategies
This is a nearly 2-hour round 2 episode with none other than Dr. Satchin Panda of the Salk Institute! At nearly two hours of dialog, this episode touches on a lot of material but has a special focus on practical implementation of time-restricted eating. Put another way, I kept a list of a lot of questions that seem to keep coming up and present them directly to Satchin. We talk about dealing with shift work, black coffee when fasting, and some of the distinctions between Satchin's approach to time-restricted eating which is influenced by his deep background in circadian biology and more conventional protocols like 16:8 that many people are familiar with. In addition to these important and very practical how-to tidbits, we dive into lots of interesting new territory as well, including... How human anecdote and animal evidence suggests time-restricted feeding may be especially useful for gut-related issues, including inflammatory bowel disease and acid reflux. The fascinating way Dr. Panda is using human anecdote from his trial to ask new scientific questions he wouldn't think to ask and then going back to animal data to figure it out and how this unique approach forms a sort of closed loop pattern: animal → human feedback → back to animal for mechanism. How labs doing caloric restriction research may have actually been reaping the benefits of time-restricted without realizing it as an incidental to their experimental design. The revelation that 70% of FDA drugs are subject to circadian effects and are either less effective or more effective at certain times of the day. The effect melatonin has on the pancreatic production of insulin and the insight this lends to why we should probably stop eating 3-4 hours before we go to bed. The bizarre way circadian rhythms affects everything from susceptibility to UV damage to recovery from surgery to cancer risk. Sign-up for Dr. Panda's mobile app study on time-restricted eating.
