FFF 059: Sleep Science: Is Your Circadian Rhythm Disrupting Your Metabolism? – with Dr Jonathan Johnston


You’ve probably heard of your circadian rhythm but do you know exactly what it is and how it can affect your metabolism and fat loss efforts?

In this episode of the podcast, biologist – Dr Jonathan Johnston – from the University of Surrey is on the show to explain how your body clock can influence your fat stores.

He explains how meal timing can affect weight loss, why time-restricted feeding may help reduce our waistlines, the importance of a regular bedtime, why shift workers are at greater risk of obesity, why we should get light emitting alarm clocks in winter and how our temperature can affect the quality of our sleep.
