Satchin Panda takes the No. 5 spot with: Eating Affects Your Sleep (and vice versa) – Satchin Panda #560

In modern life it can be hard to get to bed on time, let alone get quality sleep. But, what happens when you don’t get good sleep? You feel like a zombie, you're more likely to be anxious, and you throw your body out of whack.

In this episode, Satchin Panda, Ph.D., shares his expertise on sleep, circadian rhythm and the effects of ambient light on your overall health. He’s a professor at the Salk Institute in San Diego and a leading expert in the field of circadian rhythm research.

Circadian rhythm is a foundation of good health. It tells you that almost every organ has its own clock. For example, your brain has peak hours for productivity. 

Circadian rhythm also tells you that blue light has the power to synchronize and disrupt your internal clock and it tells you that your eating habits affect your internal clock. All of those things affect your sleep quality.

 “Your day actually begins when you go to bed the previous night because that determines how long you'll sleep, how long you'll reset your brain and then how fresh you'll wake up in the morning,” Satchin says. “Most sleep researchers agree that an adult should be in bed for eight hours. I'm saying they should be in bed for eight hours, so, out of that, somebody may get six and a half to seven hours of sleep.”

Satchin has a lot of great tips for how you can get better sleep, including keeping light out of the bedroom, reducing your body temperature before sleep, when to eat throughout the day and much more. This episode will make you feel capable of tackling any sleep problems.

 If you want to learn more about Satchin’s work, check out his latest books, “The Circadian Code: Lose Weight, Supercharge Your Energy, and Transform Your Health from Morning to Midnight” and “The Circadian Diabetes Code: Discover the Right Time to Eat, Sleep, and Exercise to Prevent and Reverse Prediabetes and Type 2 Diabetes.”
