Start the New Year with the My Circadian Clock App

Happy New Year and to a Happy New You. As we ring in the New Year with expectations, hopes, desires and goals, one can most certainly expect that leading a healthier lifestyle is at the top of the list. 

In the December issue of "Inside Salk" for the Salk Institute, Salk scientists came up with a plan to present daily food and drink intake data gathered from over 150 willing participants to see how this app worked. In short, the study found that approximately 15 hours or longer of eating time was spent by those participating in this study. The break down of that time was recorded as less than a quarter of the day's calories being consumed before noon and over a third consumed after 6 pm. 

This study, unlike so many others out there, actually studies the effects of when and what foods are  eaten by humans. As the senior author, Satchidananda Panda, associate professor in the Salk Institute's Regulatory Biology Lab stated, "the study is about developing methods and offers some preliminary insight into what and when people eat."

Now, sit back, relax and make a plan to "up your food game" with new information....
