About this Talk

Recent research has demonstrated the importance of internal biological rhythms for human health. These circadian rhythms have been shown to regulate vital metabolic processes, from glucose tolerance to lipid metabolism. Emerging human research suggests that the interaction between circadian rhythms, individual time-of-day preferences, and the timing of food intake may have important implications for metabolic health. In this presentation, we'll discuss the current state of the literature, and the potential application of the findings for practitioners.
