Are you or a loved one battling a chronic disease?
I think you’ll want to pay attention to this one.
Satchin Panda is one of the world’s leading researchers in the field of circadian biology.
He wrote a great book called The Circadian Code in which he shares the research that establishes JUST how important it is for us to align our eating, moving and sleeping with the natural rhythms of our world.

Today I want to focus on ONE very Big Idea from his book.
It’s about time-restricted eating.
Here’s the short story.
At precisely what time did you first put ANYTHING into your body other than water yesterday?
And, at precisely what time did you put that last bite of anything other than water into your body yesterday?
That’s your eating window.
For example, if you had a cup of coffee or tea at 6:30 a.m. and then ate breakfast and then lunch and then dinner and then a little snack at, say, 8:30 p.m. before going to bed at 10:30 p.m., your eating window would be 14 hours.
YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT…
If your eating window is ANYTHING greater than 12 hours, you will be SIGNIFICANTLY less healthy than if you ate within an 8-10-12 hour window of time.
It’s called “Time-restricted eating.”
The research on this is REALLY (!) powerful.
That’s Today’s +1.
We didn’t evolve to force our bodies to work all day every day digesting every little thing we throw into our mouths.
Restrict your eating window and give your body a break to do some important repair work. It will do your mind, body and soul good!
Make a note of when you had your first bite/sip of anything other than water today.
Make sure you have your last bite/sip of anything other than water less than 12 hours after that first bite/sip.
This VERY simple practice might just unlock VERY significant gains in your and your loved ones’ well-being.
Day 1. All in.
Let’s go, Hero!
