Isn’t that wild? Two pounds of weight loss a week eating the same number of calories. But that was a pretty extreme study. What about just shifting a greater percentage of calories toward earlier in the day? That’s the subject of my next video on the subject, Breakfast Like a King, Lunch Like a Prince, Dinner Like a Pauper ( ). But first we’re going to take a break from chronobiology to look at the Benefits of Garlic for Fighting Cancer and the Common Cold ( ).
Then we’ll resume with:
• Eat More Calories in the Morning Than the Evening ( )
• How Circadian Rhythms Affect Blood Sugar Levels ( )
• How to Sync Your Central Circadian Clock to Your Peripheral Clocks ( )
• The Metabolic Harms of Night Shifts and Irregular Meals ( )
• Shedding Light on Shedding Weight ( )
• Why People Gain Weight in the Fall ( )
