Most people naturally wake up, get hungry throughout the day and fall asleep at generally consistent times. Indeed, coordination of circadian clocks underlies the daily rhythms in physiology, metabolism, behavior and sleep. Now, science is uncovering the links between our circadian rhythm and overall health. While the neural clock is considered the master driver of circadian rhythms, emerging evidence indicates that circadian rhythms in metabolic organs also play a role in sleep and arousal.

When we consume a consistent daily caloric intake within a consistent window of 8-12 hours, there is an unexpected improvement in sleep. This observation is bringing new understanding that “when you eat” plays a role in whether or not you get a good night's sleep.
