Can when you eat be as important as what you eat? My next guest thinks so, and has spent his academic career studying the effects of circadian rhythm on everything from heart disease, exercise capacity, cognitive health and diabetes.
Satchin Panda, PhD is a Professor at The Salk Institute in La Jolla, California. His lab studies how circadian rhythm in metabolism is an integral part of metabolic health and longevity. In preclinical animal models he discovered that consuming all calories within a consistent 8-12 hours also known as Time-restricted feeding can sustain daily rhythms.
One of the commonest topics I’m asked about is whether TRE or eating within rigid windows is advisable, and so I was fortunate to spend some time with Dr Panda himself whose research I’ve been privy to for many years. Studies have shown that this practical tool can prevent or even reverse chronic diseases and increase lifespan and today you’ll learn about:

Satchidananda (Satchin) Panda, PhD is a professor at The Salk Institute, La Jolla, California. His lab studies how circadian rhythm in metabolism is an integral part of metabolic health and longevity. In preclinical animal models he discovered that consuming all calories within a consistent 8-12 hours or Time-restricted feeding can sustain daily rhythms in anabolic and catabolic metabolism. Such temporal regulation of metabolism can prevent or reverse chronic diseases and increase lifespan. To translate his preclinical findings to improve human health, his lab has developed an app – myCircadianClock. This app is being used to study the epidemiology of daily pattern of activity, sleep, and food intake and to run parallel interventional studies to test the impact of time restricted feeding on various chronic diseases.
