Ordinary Vegan Podcast #26: How To Lose Weight By Changing When You Eat

New research suggests that when to eat a meal plays a significant role in predicting weight loss or gain.

I am not a big fan of counting calories on a plant-based diet because I believe a healthy vegan diet is a path to lifelong weight control.

But the idea of when to eat your calories could make sense for some people who haven’t been able to lose weight on a plant-based diet or have problems sleeping.

Today I share with you a lot of research I have been doing on weight loss and weight gain, and it has been fascinating.

What I have discovered is that that there is a science behind when to eat to lose weight.

Have you ever noticed that you tend to feel energized and drowsy around the same times every day? This is your circadian rhythm at work. Your circadian rhythm is a 24-hour clock that is running in the background of your brain. It is also know as the sleep-wake cycle.

In the last 15 years, there’s been a wealth of evidence suggesting that abnormal or impaired circadian rhythms can bring an increased risk for many illnesses including cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes, obesity and even emotional dysregulation.

Find out when to eat your meals to maximize weight loss, sleep better and decrease your risk for chronic disease in this podcast.

There is a lot to learn and I hope you enjoy today’s conversation.
